He was The Ring Magazine’s Prospect of the Year in 2013, one of the most-feared up-and-comers in the sport, until he walked into a monstrous uppercut in the opening round of his world title fight with Jermell Charlo.

Erickson Lubin has stopped two opponents since then, and is teeming with confidence about his chances of beating everybody else in the 154-pound weight division — a cast of characters that includes Tony Harrison (who just took Charlo’s belt), Jaime Munguia, Jarrett Hurd, Brian Castano, Julian Williams, and Kell Brook.

“The Hammer” recently put his career in the hands of Kevin Cunningham, best known training Adrien Broner, and for taking two other southpaws (Devon Alexander and Corey Spinks) to the top of the mountain.

The world's most-diligent boxing historian, Christopher James Shelton, joined us on the May 18, 2014 edition of The Ringside Boxing Show to share the mercuiral and ultimately tragic story of Esteban de Jesus, the great Puerto Rican champion who decked Roberto Duran in two different fights, and put the first blemish on his record.

But the party scene lured de Jesus into the dark world of cocaine and heroin addictoin, a tailspin that culminated with a road-rage murder, a life sentence, and an early death from AIDS.
