Erickson Lubin, Dennis Galarza Sign With Al Haymon

By Rick Reeno has been informed that prospects Erickson Lubin (8-0, 6KOs) and Dennis Galarza (6-1, 4KOs) have signed on with powerful adviser Al Haymon.

Haymon, who went on a signing spree in 2014, is starting things early in 2015. BoxingScene has been told that several other fighters are likely to sign with Haymon in the coming weeks.

19-year-old Lubin was a highly respected amateur who turned pro in November of 2013. He saw action seven times in 2014 and closed the year with an eight round decision over veteran Norberto Gonzalez for the WBC FECARBOX junior middleweight title on November 13. Lubin is regarded by many as a blue chip prospect in his weight class.

22-year-old Galarza also turned pro in November of 2013. He suffered his first career setback last August, losing a close six round decision to unbeaten Vincent Jennings. He came back with a win in November, stopping Miguel Soto in the first round.

Both fighters are promotional free agents. They were previously promoted by Iron Mike Productions, which in recent weeks had an internal falling out between business partners Mike Tyson and Gary Jonas.

Co-manager Henry Rivalta, who handles their careers with partner Gary Jonas, is pleased to have his fighters on board with Haymon, who works with some of the biggest names in the sport.

"I would like to thank Al Haymon and Luis Decubas Jr. for putting this deal together. PROBOX management felt like this was a great opportunity for the future of these fighters. At the end they are the ones who get in there and fight and we wanted the best scenario for them. We have the utmost faith that 2015 will be a great year for our team. Lubin and Galarza are spectacular kids who are destined for greatness," Rivalta said in a statement to

Lubin and Galarza will both be in action on February 6th, as part of the Jermain Taylor vs. Sergio Mora undercard at the Beau Rivage Resort & Casino in Biloxi, Mississippi. Lubin is going to be part of the televised portion of the ESPN Friday Night Fights telecast.
