Born and raised in Cleveland, Gausha (13-0, 7 KOs) was a decorated amateur who won gold medals at the U.S. National Championships in 2009 and 2012. The 27-year-old is undefeated since turning pro in 2012. Most recently he scored a knockout victory in December 2014 over Cesar Vila and he looks to keep his perfect record intact on March 13.
A 2012 U.S. Olympian, Breazeale (13-0, 12 KOs) has been nearly perfect in recording knockouts as a pro, having only gone the distance in one fight. The 29-year-old looks to keep his undefeated record intact on March 7 when he takes on 35-year-old Puerto Rican heavyweight Victor Bisbal (21-2, 15 KOs). Bisbal last fought in 2013 when he was knocked out by Magomed Abdusalamov despite having won his previous 16 bouts.
An accomplished amateur from Toledo, Ohio, Easter (12-0, 9 KOs) is another highly regarded amateur looking to make a statement on March 7 in Las Vegas. He most recently recorded a dominant unanimous decision victory in December 2014 over Angel Hernandez. Fighting for the third time in Las Vegas, the 24-year-old will look to put on a show on March 7.
The stellar March 7 fight night is promoted by Goossen Promotions.
