Props arguably have to be given to Erickson Lubin, who remains unbowed and feisty in the face of Jermell Charlo — on social media, anyway — and seems to be angling for a rematch with the Texas twin.
You will recall that “little” Charlo and Lubin collided in October, at Barclays Center, in a young gun vs young gun scrap. The 29-0 Charlo exited with his 0 intact, as he dropped and stopped the Florida-based Lubin (then 19-0) with stunning speed and clarity.
Lubin got back in the ring for another swing this past Saturday in Texas, and got back in the win column scoring a TD-4 win over journeyman Silverio Ortiz on a PBC on FOX card topped by a Josesito Lopez vs Miguel Cruz matchup.
