Erickson Lubin Scores Sixth Round Knockout Over Orlando Lora

Wilky Campfort Gets Knockout Win Over Ronaldo Montes

WINTER PARK, FLA (September 18, 2015) – The main event of Premier Boxing Champions – The Next Round on Bounce TV delivered a crowd-pleasing unanimous decision win (96 – 92, 97 – 91, 96 – 92) by Jamal James (18-0, 9 KOs) as he outmatched Juan Carlos Abreu (18-2-1, 17 KOs) to stay undefeated. James went down in the fourth round, but battled back to take over the bout, knocking Abreu down in the sixth round and never looking back.

The co-main event showcased an action-packed brawl as Erickson Lubin (12-0, 9 KOs) stopped Orlando Lora (31-6-2, 19 KOs) at one minute fifty-eight seconds into the sixth round. Lubin knocked Lora into the ropes in the second round for what was ruled a knockdown.

The televised opener saw Wilky Campfort (21-1, 12 KOs) stop Ronaldo Montes (16-3, 14 KOs) with only one second remaining in the second round. Campfort was knocked down in the opening round, but fought back to knock down Montes three times in the second round. Montes’ corner intervened to stop the fight as the second round came to a close.

Here is what the televised fighters had to say about their performances:

JAMAL JAMES

“I adapted my style and started boxing more as the fight went on. Eventually I was able to time it right for when he came at me so I could strike first.

“He caught me with a right in the fourth that dropped me, but I didn’t feel too buzzed.

“Hopefully a win like this pushes me even further. I wanted to show my skills, but he was a formidable fighter. This was a great step-up fight for me to show people I’m not just a paper fighter.

“I’m looking for more opportunities with PBC. This was an honor to get to fight in the main event on Bounce TV.

“I’ll fight whoever my manager Al Haymon wants me to fight next. I can’t wait to get back in the gym and continue refining my skills.”

JUAN CARLOS ABREU

“I’m very disappointed in my performance. He’s a good fighter. I knew that, but I was surprised he was able to hurt me with his punches.

“I didn’t fight the way I wanted to. In the first round, I got head-butted and I never really recovered. I was buzzed the whole fight after that and when he hit me, it hurt me more than it normally would.”

ERICKSON LUBIN

“My corner helped me all fight. Every time I went to my corner they were helping me make the right adjustments.

“I kept telling myself that if (Lora) throws two punches then I’m going to throw four. If he threw four, I’d throw eight. I wanted to double his effort and show that I have more will than him. I didn’t want this fight to go this distance.

“Fighting on PBC on Bounce TV is going to help my career take off. I wanted to make a statement on TV so I could start stepping up my competition. I’m working towards a title shot.”

ORLANDO LORA

“I was not surprised at his power. I took his punches to my head very well, but my legs were shot. So I couldn’t move and had to stay in the pocket with him.

“He caught me in the beginning of the fight in the solar plexus and that took my legs away from me for the rest of the fight. He hit me so hard to the body I couldn’t breathe and my legs went numb.

“The stoppage was right. I would have loved to finish the ten rounds, but my corner knew I wasn’t going to go much longer.”

WILKY CAMPFORT

“I’ve always been a slow starter. At the start of the first round I wasn’t listening to my corner and (Montes) caught me off guard. But I got up and showed people what I came here to do.

“(Montes) is a knockout artist in his own right, but I’m a throwback fighter. I’ll fight anyone they put in front of me no matter how tough the other guy is.

“Fighting on this PBC card on Bounce TV is huge. These are the fights I need to be in, fighting a tough opponent and on TV. I showed the fans my heart and that I can punch.

“I want whoever they tell me to fight next. This is a business and I’m in it to win.”

RONALDO MONTES

“When I hurt him with that jab I thought I had him, but Campfort is a very strong guy.

“I got overconfident. My plan was to box him but when I dropped him, I went in for the kill and got caught up in a brawl. That was not my plan. I was going to outbox him. It’s my fault.”

Totally missed it

BS, did you see/expect Jack to beat Groves, and beat him with relative ease (if that was the case in your eyes)?

I thought Jack fought probably the most solid, consistent, and complete fight of his career. And no,... I felt a win by Jack was a possibility, but I still had flashbacks of Jack being brutally KO'd by a decent by mediocre Derek Edwards. If Groves could put Froch on the canvas, ...then depositing an overmatched Jack should have been childs play. Both fighters had to overcome their respective demons, which comes from the insecurity of being rendered utterly helpless in previous fights. And they both delivered with tireless, bone crunching effectiveness. I went to this new liquor store which stays open late, earlier tonight. Its one of the most densely populated areas of town during the late evening, and resembles a poorman's Hollywood Premier around an hour prior to closing. With throngs of gaudily dressed customers flexing their swag as they floss their way to the tightly packed entrance in an effort to secure that all-important brown bag to fuel their forray into the club and party scene. one of the street vendors stationed at the entrance sold me a high def dvd of the entire Floyd Berto card for 2bucks so I had an opportunity to watch the fight again at my leisure until they run the replay... Every fight on the undercard is exciting so I took my time watching the whole thing again from top to bottom reliving the awesome moments a second time. I enjoy listening to Paulie Malignacci calling the fights but for the second time in about 3 weeks i witnessed the "Paulie" effect. When Paulie speaks, his natual charisma seems to sway the whole announcing team over to his viewpoint even when he's wrong. I felt the fight was much closer than the announcers had called it. I'm sure Groves would have received the nod had the fight taken place in England. But I also believe that Jack won a hard fought, albeit close decision fairly.... Floyd has a tendency to match his guys tough, but like David Lemieux, Jack (and Groves) displayed undeniable improvements in the area of stamina and strategy as they both sat in the pocket and slammed each other with hard and effective punches for the entire 36 minutes.

Well, said. I, too - before the Groves V Jack fight - had thoughts (or flashbacks, as you say) of Jack being banged out by Edwards. Same again, I also though that if Groves could place Froch's azz on the canvas (even once and/or luckily {mind you, it was bound to happen the way Carl recklessly fought}), then Jack may have been a bit overmatched. Didn't turn out that way though. I know what you mean about Paulie. Personally, I think the "Paulie" effect happens because when Paulie speaks, his (charisma, and) extroverted experience forces the announcing team to consider what basis they have for their claims that don't share his viewpoint. That takes them to a place where the probably feel they cant - publicly and on air - run (their mouths) with Paulie and risk the embarrassment - even if they know Paulie may be wrong. Hey . . look after, and be a bit quiet about, that DVD set of the entire Floyd Berto card won't you? As I reckon if you talk too much about it around here some might come out of the woodwork and claim that it's worth only half that which you paid. :) :)
