Erickson Lubin: “I Want The Best (Jeison) Rosario So I Can Show The World That I’m The Best At 154 Pounds”

By: Hans Themistode Quietly, Erickson Lubin has put together quite the run. After suffering a first-round stoppage defeat at the hands of Jermell Charlo in October of 2017, Lubin has gone on to win five straight. In his most recent contest, the Florida native picked up a close unanimous decision win against fringe contender Terrell Gausha. With each victory, Lubin continues to build his already stellar resume. In an effort to reinforce it yet again, the highly rated 154-pound contender will take on former unified champion Jeison Rosario. The two are slated to be the co-main event to Gervonta Davis vs. Mario Barrios at the State Farm Arena on June 26th. As his fight date creeps closer and closer, Lubin simply can’t wait to add another quality scalp to his already impressive collection. “I’m excited to be facing another ex-world champion,” said Lubin during an interview with FightHype.com. “It’s a good look on my resume. June 26th, expect fireworks.” Rosario, 26, is looking to jump back onto the title scene after losing in blowout fashion to Jermell Charlo in September of last year and losing his 154-pound titles in the process. Rosario would hit the deck on three separate occasions before ultimately getting stopped in the eighth round. Before his untimely demise, Rosario made a name for himself as he stomped into the backyard of former unified champion Julian Williams and stopped him in front of his hometown crowd in five rounds. Ultimately, Lubin is hoping that the same Rosario that showed up against Williams, is the one who’s standing across from him come fight night. “I want the best Rosario. I want the Rosario that upset Jrock (Julian Williams) so I can show the world that I’m the best at 154 pounds.” In terms of respect, Lubin has the utmost for Rosario and what he brings to the table. With that said, he views a win over the former world champion as a formality. If Lubin does in fact pick up the win, he’ll turn his full attention to July 17th. On the date in question, Charlo takes WBO belt holder, Brian Castano. The winner of their showdown will become the first undisputed champion at 154 pounds since Winky Wright in 2004. While he doesn't want to look too far ahead, Lubin has an eye on how things will shake out. “I feel like after this victory right here, we’ll be for sure in line for that title. I know he got a test in front of him in Castano but I want the winner. After I take care of business here, we’ll definitely be in the talks for that.” The post Erickson Lubin: “I Want The Best (Jeison) Rosario So I Can Show The World That I’m The Best At 154 Pounds” appeared first on BoxingInsider.com.

Oscar De La Hoya Set To Take On Vitor Belfort On September 11th

By: Hans Themistode LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA - MAY 08: Former professional boxer Oscar de la Hoya attends the Los Angeles Premiere of "What's My Name | Muhammad Ali" from HBO on May 08, 2019 in Los Angeles, California. (Photo by Jeff Kravitz/FilmMagic for HBO) After spending months whipping his nearly 50-year-old body back into fighting shape, Oscar De La Hoya announced that he would make his return to the ring. Now, after sifting through several opponents, the 2014 Hall of Famer finally has his foe. As first reported by Mike Coppinger of The Athletic, De La Hoya has agreed to terms with former UFC champion Vitor Belfort in an exhibition that will be available on Triller. The two are now set to face off on September 11th in Las Vegas, Nevada. For De La Hoya, he hasn't officially competed in the ring since suffering an eighth-round stoppage defeat at the hands of Manny Pacquiao in 2008. Shortly following his brutal defeat, De La Hoya opted to hang up his gloves. However, after watching fellow all-time great Mike Tyson return to the ring and look impressive in his exhibition contest against Roy Jones Jr. in November of last year, De La Hoya began getting the itch to compete again. Originally, the former six-division world champion hinted that he would be more than willing to face current IBF middleweight titlist, Gennadiy Golovkin. While nothing ever materialized, De La Hoya attempted to take on former UFC lightweight champion, Eddie Alvarez. Although Alvarez admitted that he was interested in the matchup, negotiations broke down. Next up on De La Hoya’s list, was retired UFC legend, George Saint Pierre. By all accounts, everything appeared to be pointing towards the two sharing the ring with one another. But, UFC President Dana White, nixed those talks immediately. As for Belfort, the 44-year-old enjoyed massive success early in his MMA career but recently, has gone on a slide. The former UFC belt holder has two wins in his last seven fights in the cage and was knocked out in the second round due to a front kick by Lyoto Machida in 2018. In terms of his boxing experience, Belfort won’t be entirely out of his element. The Brazilian native has fought once professionally, scoring a first-round knockout against Josemario Neves in 2006.
