Erickson Lubin Vs. Terrell Gausha: Fight Prediction
Together with a deep roster that contains the likes of secondary titleholder Erislandy Lara and former champions Jarrett Hurd, Julian”J-Rock” Williams and Tony Harrison, the PBC homes the two guys who currently hold three of the four accepted names in Jermell Charlo (WBC) and also Jeison Rosario (WBC, WBA).
Not only are Charlo and Rosario set to mix it up during one of 2 pay-per-view primary events Showtime will broadcast Sept. 26 for command of the branch, the network features a bout nearly as significant one week before to get a mandatory shot at the WBC title at stake.
Fresh off a broad choice win over Nathaniel Gallimore past October that indicated four straight wins because his 2017 loss to Charlo, the 24-year-old Lubin has entered a new level of confidence and poise but inside and outside of this ring.
“I am back and better so I am seeking to take over this branch. I started off with the main event I had last time from Gallimore. I had an impressive performance. I am looking to do precisely exactly the exact same thing and have a spectacular victory. Then I have the compulsory spot and we get among those champions from Charlo and Rosario to get all of the belts.
“I’m enthusiastic and fired up. I can’t wait”
Even though Lubin is amenable to facing either Rosario or Charlo if he advance beyond Gausha, he could not help but admit he’d love to find a second chance at the recent WBC champion.
“I managed to just go back to the drawing board. I ain’t had my head held down for a long time. I know my skill set and I believe in myself. My confidence is at an all-time high. I simply bounced back. I got with Kevin Cunningham. He helped me bounce back into a tremendous way. He attracted my IQ game to another level. Being with him, I only booted up 100 times longer ”
Cunningham is a coach noted as much for his demanding approach as for his achievement with southpaws like former champions Cory Spinks, Devon Alexander and David Diaz. He has served a much larger role compared to Lubin as not merely mentor and teacher, but a managerial form figure when it comes to which fights to accept.
Lubin took on what’s anticipated to be a tricky struggle from the 33-year-old Gausha, that will box and punch despite having come up short in his 2 biggest struggles so far — a 2017 decision loss to Lara for the WBA title along with a contested split draw Austin Trout this past year.
“Training team has always been a little different before this fight but we have done what we will need to and I will be prepared,” Gausha explained. “This is a big struggle for me, being my next chance at getting into a domain. I understand Lubin is a young, excellent fighter and I’m sure he’ll also be ready. But this really is my fourth southpaw at a row, so I’m very ready for this fight and I’m going to demonstrate that I am on another level”
A native of Cleveland, Ohio, who battled on the 2012 U.S. Olympic team, Gausha now battles out of Encino, California, beneath head coach Manny Robles. He was originally scheduled to struggle Lubin last October before a hand injury forced him to pull out, and enabled Gallimore to slip in for that which became Lubin’s Showtime closeup.
“We know [Gausha] is still an Olympian and he’s the experience under his belt but I have exactly the same type of knowledge and perhaps even more,” Lubin said. “I expect to go out there and only capitalize on everything he’s out there with. If he want to come out and ship or should he would like to bang, it don’t matter. I will go around, take good care of business, win the title and just continue defending it. I’m going to make my mark at the branch and only take over”
Lubin believes Gausha was able to land shots against an aging Trout that he will not have exactly the same opportunity to contrary to him. He also doesn’t have regrets for the decision he made back in 2013 when, as an 18-year-old, Lubin decided against the Olympic street in favour of turning pro for then-promoter Mike Tyson.
When it has to do with the 154-pound division, Lubin considers each the discussion will soon center around not only its overall depth but the simple fact he has split himself because the face.
“[Critics] bring my name up when they speak about the division being loaded, I simply feel like they hype up the other dudes a little bit longer,” Lubin said. “It is my job to go out there and allow them to know which person they should be speaking about. They should be speaking about me. Charlo and Rosario are winners but each of the other dudes, I believe as though they became champion once and couldn’t defend the straps. To me, that is not true champion status. I feel like once I get the straps I am likely to keep them.
“What distinguishes me is I am the funniest however I can compete with any of these. I am able to beat anyone of those guys. I am hungry and Showtime is financing me and it is exciting. I just can not wait to find those title fights and those pay-per-view fights. I’m definitely seeking to take full advantage of each opportunity that comes my way.”

Date: Saturday, Sept. 19
Fight card, odds
Erickson Lubin -650 vs. Terrell Gausha +475, junior middleweights
Tugstsogt Nyambar vs. Cobia Breedy, featherweights
Jarron Ennis vs. Juan Carlos Abreu, welterweights
Gausha is always at his finest when he’s in control of the speed and able to rely on his timing and strategy to counter. The problem is that he doesn’t let his hands move enough in competitive struggles where activity might end up being the gap in rounds.
So long as Lubin can avoid getting caught in these routines, he stays the rightful betting favorite. With benefits in power and speed, Lubin will have to be volatile enough early to prevent Gausha from discovering room to let his hands move.
Gausha is lasting and informed enough to go the distance in this struggle, even in defeat. Lubin will need to eliminate regularly with his jab, which he showcased nearly exclusively in a gorgeous performance outboxing a lasting Gallimore, to be able to establish his heavy counter shots including a sneaky uppercut.
Was his one-punch knockout loss to Charlo an early referendum on Lubin’s chin when confronting elite punchers or just a terrible night at the office to get a young fighter? Either way, Gausha likely is not the type of fighter who will be a major threat in exposing this.
A victory by outboxing such a talented tech in Gausha could be a significant announcement toward his upcoming name hopes contrary to the winner of Charlo-Rosario. But a less likely stoppage would lift that announcement into something more like a risk.
