Lubin's Trainer Confident His Boxer Beats Charlo in Rematch

Kevin Cunningham was in Ontario, California last Saturday for the Premier Boxing Champions on FOX event.  He worked the corner of former super middleweight champion Andre Dirrell, who returned to ring for the first time in more than 20 months.

This was the world class trainer’s first fight with Dirrell and the pairing proved to be successful. Dirrell, who now campaigns in the light heavyweight division, stopped Juan Ubaldo Cabrera in 5 rounds.

Cunningham’s stable of fighters also includes super welterweight contender Erickson Lubin so he was a very interested observer of the Tony Harrison-Jermell Charlo main event that Charlo won by 11th round stoppage.

charlo-lubin (5)_2

Lubin faced Charlo in 2017 when he was caught cold and stopped in one round. The now 24-year-old Lubin wasn’t trained by Cunningham for that fight. The duo have now worked together for 3 fights and the coach believes that if a rematch comes to fruition, the result will be very different.

“I sat ringside tonight and scouted the Harrison-Charlo fight,” Cunningham told

“After thoroughly watching the fight I’m convinced that Lubin beats Charlo in the rematch. Harrison made it difficult for him throughout the fight. At the end of the day Charlo did what he had to do and caught Harrison. One thing’s for sure, he’ll be facing a totally different fighter in Lubin and it’ll be a totally different result if the rematch happens.“

[QUOTE=Topdogggbm;20283046]THIS THIS THIS! It's ridiculous the way Lubin is viewed since the Charlo loss. That was one awkward punch in a fight that lasted like 5 seconds. It wasn't as if Charlo outclassed him, beat him up bad or exposed…

His you ok, his you ok........That's all i could think about everytime i pictured Lubin when he got KO'ed by Charlo.

[QUOTE=Jab jab boom;20281511]I think that ko of lubin was somewhat of a fluke. Not to say Charlo wouldn't beat him in a rematch, but highly unlikely that it'd be that easy again.[/QUOTE] THIS THIS THIS! It's ridiculous the way Lubin…

Lubin will lose again. Nobody wants to see that fight again. Unify the division is what should be done next. Lubin needs to fight Hurd or Harrison anyone on that level of competition because he doesn’t have quality wins. He’ll…

[QUOTE=Snoop Frog;20281446]Would like to see Charlo vs Hurd or Williams before Lubin. Lubin vs guys ranked 6 through 10 on Boxrec would help him build more confidence before fighting the sharks: Castano, Soro, or Teixeira.[/QUOTE] Agreed. I'd like to see…
