Here is what the press conference participants had to say Wednesday:

JERMELL CHARLO
 
"I'm honored to be in Brooklyn. This is another exciting fight card like the last card I was on here. I did what I had to do in April. I let the opponent run his mouth and then I took care of him. I'm going to let that happen again.
 
"I have to take advantage of this opportunity. I know that I have a lot of advantages but I just need to go seize the moment. He's a tough, strong fighter who's going to be ready to take my title.
 
"It's interesting to see a guy as young as he is come for a world title. I've been here a long time in the pro game. It's a big stage for both of us. I've fought a lot of tough guys up to this point. This is what I've been preparing for.
 
"I want to fight Jarrett Hurd after this. I'd also like to get an opportunity to unify against Miguel Cotto. I want to show the old guard that the Charlo twins are as good as anyone.
 
"I got my hands full with Ericskon Lubin and I know he comes to fight. He's a dog, but I'm an animal as well. I'm going to step up and do what I've done each time before.
 
"I'm doing this for Houston. Houston is going through a lot. My friends and family are all affected. It really doesn't seem real to me. I'm ready to help however I can."

ERICKSON LUBIN
 
"This is the fight I asked for. I said I wanted to go the WBC route and when it was officially announced I was really excited. I've been training for this since my last fight. I'm even more motivated now to go get the belt.
 
"I've been sparring with bigger guys. Guys who throw one-two combos like Jermell. I'm getting prepared mentally and physically for this fight.
 
"Jermell has some power. He moves pretty well, but I'll be prepared for everything. Whether he pressures or boxes me I'll be prepared.
 
"I laugh at people who say this is too soon for me. Mike Tyson was 19 when he dared to be great. This is the perfect time for me to show that I'm not a regular 21-year-old.
 
"This is a stacked card we have here and I'm ready to showcase my talent. I want to prove I'm the best in this division. I think we're bringing back the era of all fighters going out there and giving it their all each time they step into the ring. I always steal the show and I'm planning to do that October 14."

On the surface, it looks like a terrible mistake on the part of Lubin's management. From his last opponent to Charlo, that's too big of a leap in competition for this 21 yo. You're supposed to season him with some…

Lubin used to look like a big welterweight

Comment by MDPopescu on 09-07-2017

... Lubin is 21 yo only and doesn't look like a superwelterweight anymore...

[QUOTE=genrick;18022424]Seems Lubin got fat. Don't know if he could shed that extra pounds with only few weeks left. The hunger is not there. That's what inactivity does to fighters. He fought 7 times in 2014, 5x in 2015, 4x in…
