What Does Erickson Lubin Think Would Be Different In Jermell Charlo Rematch?
Erickson Lubin has been itching to get another chance at fighting Jermell Charlo.
On October 14, 2017, Lubin challenged Charlo for the WBC Light-Middleweight Championship. At the time, Lubin was undefeated as was Charlo. Lubin ended up suffering a first-round knockout loss and was forced to go back to the drawing board.
Lubin recently did battle with Terrell Gausha in the main event of a Showtime Boxing event. Lubin earned the unanimous decision victory in a WBC Title eliminator. Lubin discussed potentially facing Charlo again and he explained why he thinks things will go differently in a second fight (via Bad Left Hook).
“I think Jermell Charlo is going to come out on top against Jeison Rosario. I’m ready for a rematch if he can take care of business like I did. I changed up a lot since the first fight. I have a master trainer in my corner in Kevin Cunningham, along with my longtime trainer Jason Galarza. I’m just all around a better fighter since the first time we fought.”
Charlo will meet Jeison Rosario in a title unification bout this Saturday, September 26. Rosario holds the WBA (Super) and IBF gold. The championship fight will be part of a Showtime PPV doubleheader. Jermell’s brother, Jermall will defend his WBC Middleweight Championship against Sergiy Derevyanchenko. The action will be held inside an empty Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Connecticut.
