Rising super welterweight contender Erickson “The Hammer” Lubin (22-1) went 3-0 last year with 2 knockouts. He stopped Ishe Smith and Zakaria Attou before winning a 10 round unanimous decision over late replacement Nathaniel Gallimore in October.
The 24-year-old doesn’t have his next fight lined up yet but has returned to camp as he waits a date.
Prior to his last fight, Erickson’s trainer Kevin Cunningham said that after facing Gallimore, his fighter would be ready for the best of the division. He has now won 4 fights in a row since suffering his only professional loss which came against Jermell Charlo.
Cunningham’s outlook hasn’t changed and recently restated that he hopes they can secure one of the top names at 154 pounds for his next opponent.
“Hammer’s in camp getting mentally and physically prepared. We haven’t received confirmation on a date or an opponent yet. We are ready and willing to face any of the top guys like Charlo, (Jeison) Rosario, (Jarrett) Hurd, (Tony) Harrison, (Erislandy) Lara or (Brian) Castaño. It doesn’t matter to us,” Cunningham told BoxingScene.com.
While some of the aforementioned fighters already have opponents lined up, Premiere Boxing Champions has most of the talent in the super welterweight division and Lubin should land a fight in the near future.
