"At the end of the day, you're fighting other grown men. And they're coming to knock you out just as you're coming to do your job," said Easter Jr.

"The mistakes he made, he corrected me on them. He didn't want to see me make the same mistakes," said Easter Jr.
Easter Jr. was an alternate for the Olympics in 2012, traveling to London with the U.S. team. His father has high expectations for his boxing career.
"He's going to be world champion. Real soon. He's going to be world champ," said Easter Sr.
