When it comes to entertainment value, Jason Easton is just about as all-action as it gets. Though only 26 years of age, the former Celtic and IBO Inter-Continental champion has been involved in his fair share of roof-raising wars. ‘The Warrior’ claimed his previously-held IBO strap on the Josh Taylor vs. Ohara Davies undercard last July, as he stopped Belgium’s teak-tough Steve Jamoye after several rounds of scintillating action – eventually winning via TKO in the 9th round.
Though unsuccessful in his quest to become Commonwealth champion against Glenn Foot in March, Easton played his part in what unfolded as a real Fight of the Year contender. Both men went to war for eleven brutal rounds, and although the 26-year-old ultimately fell short that night, he remains determined to bounce back and return better than ever in the coming months.
