Is This A Candidate For Best Round Of 2016? Easter vs Commey Round 9

2016 produced many entertaining fights and rounds around the world of boxing. But was this the very best round of 2016 between Robert Easter Jr and Richard Commey for the IBF lightweight title (round 9)? Lets take a look back.

The fight was for the vacant IBF lightweight world title at the Santander Arena in Reading, Pennsylvania, USA and proved to be a fun filled, action packed, competitive affair.

Easter eventually came away with the win but only by split decision and took his record to 18-0 (14KO) as the new year approaches for him.

Round 9 in the fight between the two will go down as an absolute barnstormer and possibly the very best round of 2016.

The folks at Premier Boxing Champions YouTube (hat tip and credit) have highlighted it here – lets watch it back again:

Now that’s toe to toe action if ever there was any.

There’s been plenty of exciting rounds in 2016 but thought we’d point this one out as one that may have gone slightly under the radar as the year comes to an end.

What do you think? What was your round of the year?
