Erickson Lubin and Sebastian Fundora brawl it out

Another clip that surfaced on Instagram displayed a memorable rally between ‘The Towering Inferno’ and ‘Hammer’ Lubin in the 7th round that sent a spark in the arena and the crowd went wild.

Though Erickson Lubin faced the second defeat of his career, he showcased an incredible piece of art against the 6 foot 6 inches tall brawler. The 26-year-old unloaded a lethal combination of right and left hooks that pushed ‘The Towering Inferno’ on the ropes and then forced him to the floor.

The duo put incredible heart into the display. Both scored one knockdown and survived it. The first exciting moment came in the second round when ‘The Towering Inferno’ dropped Lubin with a well-crafted uppercut. It really hurt ‘Hammer’ so much that he took the help of rope while getting back on his feet.

Finally, a lethal uppercut came in the 9th round which seized Lubin, and the latter could not gather himself again.

After the fight, Fundora said, “I think this was probably my best performance ever. It was a back-and-forth fight, and he really brought his hammers today, but you know what, I decided to bring my drill and that’s what I did. My uppercut was landing like no other, it got the job done.”
