Gallimore: ‘I can absolutely see myself stopping Lubin’

Top super welterweight Erickson “Hammer” Lubin and all-action Nathaniel Gallimore went face to face two days before they square off in the main event this Saturday night live on SHOWTIME from Santander Arena in Reading, Pa., in an event presented by Premier Boxing Champions.

Initially, Lubin was scheduled to face Terrell Gausha, but due to injury, Gausha had to withdraw from the fight. Enter Nathaniel Gallimore, who is very pleased with his preparation for this fight.

“It’s been an amazing training camp,” Gallimore said on Thursday. “This is not a late replacement, because I’ve been training hard way before this fight. I knew this opportunity would present itself to me. Saturday night, you’re not going to want to miss this legendary performance.

Gallimore has lost two out of last three fights, including a loss to unified 154-pound champion Julian Williams. However, according to Gallimore, a win over Lubin takes his career to another level.

“I’m feeling great right now. Saturday night is going to be something special for my career. It’s going to take my career to a whole new level.”

When he leaves Reading, PA, on Saturday night, Gallimore expects to be victorious.

“On Saturday, I will be victorious,” he said. “It doesn’t matter what he brings to the table; I will have an answer for it.

“I can absolutely see myself stopping Lubin. Stay in your seat, and don’t miss a second. You don’t want to miss what I do on Saturday.”
