Super welterweight contenders Erickson Lubin (21-1) and Dennis Hogan (28-2-1) were on a collision course to face each other in October. The fight was supposed to serve as a Showtime co-featured bout in chief support of a potential Adrien Broner-Ivan Redkach main event.
However, BoxingScene.com has been advised that both fighters are headed in separate directions. The Athletic's Mike Coppinger first reported the latest developments.
2012 US Olympian Terrell Gausha (21-1-1) is next up for Lubin. based fighter. Gausha last fought in May when he battled former champion Austin Trout to a disputed split draw in Biloxi, MS. Gausha's only professional loss came against Erislandy Lara in 2017.
Sources have now told BoxingScene.com that the Lubin-Gausha showdown will headline a Showtime card on October 26th at a venue still to be determined. In the co-feature bout former WBA super welterweight champion Brian Castaño will battle the upset minded Wale Omotoso.
Castaño held the WBA "regular" super welterweight title but relinquished it in June when he refused to travel to France to face Michel Soro, his mandatory challenger in a rematch. Soro's promoter had won the purse bid but Castaño refused to sign the contract after having a contractual dispute that stemmed from their first fight in 2017 that Castaño won by split decision. He was last in action in March when he fought Lara to a split draw.
Omotoso has campaigned at welterweight for most of his career but picked up the biggest win of his career in June when he upset former title challenger Curtis Stevens in Las Vegas. It was Omotoso's third fight at 154 pounds.
Not sure if Easter vs Granados happens here
I thought Hogan was a middleweight now?
He was a name that popped up for Demetrius Andrade of all people....which would be easy money for Boo Boo. This cat is tiny.
