Lubin is ready to return to the ring
Last October Erickson Lubin got close to his lifetime goal of becoming a world champion but fell short in his attempt when he got knocked out in the first round by WBC junior middleweight champion Jermell Charlo.
Lubin took a few months off to get his mind and body right and is now back in the gym and ready to return to action. He said he wants to return where he left off which is in a world title match. It’s hard to imagine it would happen that way with the way the division is playing out.
“I want the top dogs in the division and a rematch with Jermell. I want to be where I belong, which is at the top, and I want to prove it. I definitely want and need a title shot. But this is business, so it’s probably not going to play out like that,” Lubin said
“So I want to fight anybody. There is no one person I wouldn’t be ready for. I’ve got that mindset that I’ll fight anybody out there in the 154-pound division. I have blood in my eyes, so I want to fight a big name next. I definitely want somebody they claim is among the best in this division.”
“I’m more mature inside and outside of the ring, and I’ll definitely be more of a savage when I fight,” Lubin said.
“I want to go in there with the intentions of making short work of them in a short night. I need to look good, win impressively and I definitely need to knockout my next opponent to let people know I’m still here. I want a rematch with Jermell as soon as possible because I know where I went wrong. I’m ready to terrorize everybody at 154 pounds and to fulfill my destiny of becoming a world champion.”
Lubin’s return date and opponent is unknown at this time but it is likely he could be added to an undercard on one of the new fights announced as part of PBC on Showtime.
It has been rumored that a possible matchup between him and another 154lb prospect Justin Deloach could take place. Deloach himself is coming off of a setback with a loss to Nathaniel Gallimore his last time out.
