Top junior middleweight prospect Erickson Lubin got in some work tonight in Chicago, stopping Mexico’s Daniel Sandoval in the third round of a PBC on NBC fight at the UIC Pavilion.

Lubin (15-0, 11 KO) looked sharp and strong here, fighting patiently, not making mistakes, and taking what Sandoval (38-4, 35 KO) gave him. Sandoval tried to find the range with his jab, but never really got anything going, as Lubin hammered him to the body and head, eventually hurting him with a good body shot late in the third round, and then finishing Sandoval off. Sandoval did not go down, but the referee stopped it at 2:36 anyway.

Lubin landed 50% of his total punches, connecting on 80 of 161, compared to 43 of 203 (21%) for Sandoval.

Lubin will probably stay at this level for a couple more fights, but the 20-year-old is clearly on the rise, and if you haven’t been paying attention to him yet, you might want to start. He’s a legit talent and prospect, and he’s continuing to show improvement.
