NEW YORK — Junior middleweight Erickson Lubin has been on the fast track to a world title fight since he signed a pro contract on his 18th birthday in 2013 and had his first bout a month later.
That is when “Hammer” Lubin (18-0, 13 KOs) unleashed an overhand left than nailed Cota (25-2, 22 KOs) on the chin and he went down.
Including that fight, Dawson is 3-4 in his past seven bouts, including a first-round knockout to Stevenson in which he lost his title and this stoppage against Fonfara.
As it stated in Tonight’s match against Cota wasn’t much of a test for Lubin due to the slow hand speed that Cota possessed.
This was more of a showcase fight for Lubin to get him ready for an eventual title shot.

The 22-year-old Lubin knocked Cota down with a scorching left hand to the head.
That wold be a dangerous fight, because Charlo has more size, power and speed than Lubin.
