Many in the arena sound disappointed with the decision

Lubin: “i’m one of the top dogs in the division.”

Suddenly Lubin is his former self in these later rounds

Ramos appears to be tiring in round 11

Lubin has been gaining steam heading into the championship rounds.

Terence Crawford is in attendance, but takes a pass on making a prediction

The undefeated, undisputed welterweight champ has been vocal about his desire to fight Canelo in the future.

Crawford could also fight with Charlo at junior middleweight if he can’t book Canelo

If Canelo is nervous about Charlo, he isn’t showing it

Floyd Mayweather Jr. isn’t the only boxing legend at T-Mobile Arena

Julio Cesar Chavez is also in attendance

LAS VEGAS, NEVADA - SEPTEMBER 30:   Retired boxer Julio Cesar Chavez looks on during a super welterweight fight between Jesus Ramos Jr. (white trunks) and Erickson Lubin (red trunks)  at T-Mobile Arena on September 30, 2023 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Smells like money at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas

Lubin is coming off a win…

… but had the wind taken out of his sail by 6-foot-6 Sebastian Fundora in April of 2022 when his corner threw in the towel.

Looking strong tonight against a fellow southpaw, but Ramos has an excellent uppercut and very good power. Dangerous, young fighter at just 20.

Up next: Ramos Jr. vs. Lubin

Americans Jesus Ramos Jr. (20-0) and Erickson Lubin (25-2) are up next at junior middleweight. Ramos could eventually fight his way into a battle with Charlo if he continues winning. He’s coming off a March stoppage victory over Joseph Spencer.

A look at Barrios’ second knockdown of Ugas

Unlikley Ugas saw this left hook coming.

Barriors improves to 28-2 with the decision

Ugas falls to 27-6 and has now lost consecutive fights for the second time in his career.

Ugas is still standing…

… but as one can tell from his eye, it’s unlikely he’s going to get the decision.

Ugas went down in the final round, likely because he couldn’t see Barrios’ left hook out of his right eye.

Ugas’ eye is closing rapidly under Barrios’ barrage

Ugas’ right eye is closing. In his last fight, against Errol Spence Jr., he suffered significant damage to that same orbital bone.

Ugas returns to action after his 2022 loss to Spence

Ugas, a 37-year-old Cuban with a decorated amateur career, hasn’t fought since his 2022 TKO loss to Errol Spence Jr. at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

Barrios beat Jovanie Santiago with an eighth-round TKO in February in his native San Antonio, but lost his previous two fights: A unanimous decision to Keith Thurman and a TKO defeat to Gervonta Davis.
