Erickson Lubin takes Jesus Ramos Jr.’s 0

Erickson Lubin got a controversial win against Jesus Ramos Jr. in the co-main of Canelo Alvarez vs. Jermell Charlo on Saturday. Lubin swept the judges‘ scorecards (115-113, 116-112, 117-111) to hand Ramos Jr. his first loss, and not everyone agrees with the decision. For the majority of the fight, Ramos Jr. appeared to have everything under control, but Lubin turned things up in the final rounds.

Here is how our own Lukasz Fenrych had the twelfth round of Lubin vs. Ramos Jr.:

Round 12: Cummingham giving Lubin a talking to. Tells him he’s got three minutes to get the job done. He’s not wrong, he almost certainly needs a knockout here. Ramos has seemingly decided to give it a bit more gas in the final round, pushing to the ropes again. Some messy clinching and a clash of heads on the break. Big left hook lands for Ramos. Lubin clinches again. Another jab-heavy round, Ramos controlling, seeing this out. Crowd booing again as the bell goes. 10-9 Ramos, 119-112. Could be a little closer, but I’d be very surprised by a Lubin win.

Surprisingly enough, Lubin did get the win.
