Last month, American boxer Erickson Lubin (23-1) got an extra shot at the world welterweight title by beating compatriot Terrell Gaucher by decision in a Showtime main event. This victory made him the main contender for the duel with Jermell Charlo.
In turn, Charlo added the WBA and IBF championship to his collection of titles, winning 8 rounds against Jason Rosario.
What Charlo plans next is not known, but the WBO championship belt, which is owned by Patrick Tesheira, is all that he lacks until the title of undisputed champion. Lubin’s coach, Kevin Cunningham, hopes that Erickson’s next rival will be Charlo, but he does not intend to wait indefinitely and made it clear that in this case any major challenger will suit him:
“Erickson is in a great situation right now and we are waiting to see the final alignment. We hope that Charlo will be Lubin’s next opponent, but if not, then I think the fans will not mind if it is Jarrett Heard or Julian Williams. Erickson wants, to keep his schedule busy and ready to fight any fighter of his level. “
