Former Poinciana Student Erickson Lubin to Fight For Middleweight Title

September 1, 2017

A professional boxer who was once a student at Poinciana High School could become a world champion next month.

Erickson “The Hammer” Lubin (154lbs), a former Eagle, is set to fight against Jermell Charlo (154lbs) for a middleweight world title fight at 8 p.m., Oct. 14 at the Barclays Center in New York City.

The fight will be broadcast live on Showtime.

This will be an important fight for both boxers as both are currently undefeated, Lubin with 18-0 and Charlo with 29-0.

Charlo will be defending his 154lb world title against Lubin, the challenger. If Lubin wins, it’ll be a great look for his career, as he will be the new champion.

Lubin has been making a name for himself as a boxer ever since his first fight in 2013 against Eric De Jesus.

Lubin has gotten knockouts on 13 of his 18 wins (72%) and Charlo has 14 Knockouts of his 29 fights (48%).

“I’m so proud of him.” said his former math teacher, Joel Cambell. “To see somebody who sat in my class his ninth grade year do something as big as this is amazing.”

In an exclusive interview with The Point, Lubin said he is ready for the fight ahead.

“I feel confident,” Lubin said. “I was born to be a champion, and I won’t let anyone get in my way.”

“I’ll just have to run Charlo over.”
