Lubin: I Could Have Kept Fighting, It's Just a Minor Setback

All three champions defended their titles Saturday night in different fashions.

The highlight was Jermell Charlo's first-round knockout of Erickson Lubin. Or maybe it was Jarrett Hurd's action-packed win over Austin Trout.

It certainly wasn't Erislandy Lara's unanimous decision over Terrell Gausha.

Lara schooled Gausha for most of their 12-round WBA welterweight title fight, outpointing the 2012 U.S. Olympian to close out the triple-championship card.

The feature was hardly that, a display of imprecise punching and pawing. Lara, a native of Cuba now nicknamed "the American Dream" and fighting out of Houston, knocked down Gausha in the fourth round with a right-left combination, but by the ninth, many of those remaining in an announced crowd of 7,643 were chanting "This is boring!"

The previous two bouts were anything but.

Charlo stunned Lubin with a sharp, short right to the chin and knocked out the challenger 2:41 into their WBC super welterweight title fight. Hurd overcame a cut to his left eye to stop a game Trout in 10 rounds in their IBF junior middleweight championship fight.

Charlo's first good punch of the bout was enough for the win. Lubin, who was in a crouch when hit, took the shot directly on his chin. One of the rising stars of boxing, he was immediately counted out as his left leg twitched while he was on the canvas.

Charlo scored his 15th knockout in his 30th fight and second defense. His twin brother,Jarmell, also has been a world champ.

“I’m fine. He caught me with a blind shot. I didn’t see it coming. He landed it. I felt like when I got up I could have kept fighting, but it’s boxing. It happens," Lubin said.

“I’m young and I’m hungry. I know I’m one of the best out there. He caught me with a blind shot that I didn’t see. Like I said, it’s boxing. I’m just going to remain hungry, get back in the gym and become the champion I know I am.

“I'm young and have plenty of fight left in me. This is just a minor setback. I'll be back sooner than later and hungrier than ever."
