Premier Boxing Champions has an interesting doubleheader being discussed for an October date.
World class trainer Kevin Cunningham recently took to social media stating, “its time to get back to business” without stating who exactly would be fighting.
In a recent article by BoxingScene.com’s Jake Donovan, fights pitting former four-division champion Adrien Broner against Ivan Redkach and a battle of former super welterweight title challengers in Erickson “The Hammer” Lubin and Dennis Hogan are slated for an October twin bill. Cunningham has trained both Broner and Lubin.
While interested in the fight, Cunningham has advised BoxingScene.com that a fight against Hogan has not been finalized for Lubin.
He felt the same way as many boxing observers, believing that the Australia based Irishman Hogan deserved the nod against WBO super welterweight champion Jaime Munguía when they squared off in April. Munguía won a majority points decision in his native Mexico.
“Lubin versus Hogan has been mentioned but is not yet confirmed. I’ve studied several of Dennis Hogan’s fights. After watching Munguía versus Hogan, I thought Hogan clearly beat ‘The Boogie Man’ Munguía. Hogan showed in that performance that he’s a problem for anybody in the division. If this fight happens The Hammer has to be on point,” Cunningham time BoxingScene.com.
Lubin has won three fights in a row since losing to then champion Jermell Charlo. Hogan had won his six bouts prior to his controversial loss to Munguía.
