WINTER PARK, FLA (September 18, 2015) – The main event of Premier Boxing Champions – The Next Round onBounce TV delivered a crowd-pleasing unanimous decision win (96 – 92, 97 – 91, 96 – 92) by Jamal James (18-0, 9 KOs) as he outmatched Juan Carlos Abreu (18-2-1, 17 KOs) to stay undefeated. James went down in the fourth round, but battled back to take over the bout, knocking Abreu down in the sixth round and never looking back.
The co-main event showcased an action-packed brawl as Erickson Lubin (12-0, 9 KOs) stopped Orlando Lora (31-6-2, 19 KOs) at one minute fifty-eight seconds into the sixth round. Lubin knocked Lora into the ropes in the second round for what was ruled a knockdown.
The televised opener saw Wilky Campfort (21-1, 12 KOs) stop Ronaldo Montes (16-3, 14 KOs) with only one second remaining in the second round. Campfort was knocked down in the opening round, but fought back to knock down Montes three times in the second round. Montes’ corner intervened to stop the fight as the second round came to a close.
Here is what the televised fighters had to say about their performances:
JAMAL JAMES
“I adapted my style and started boxing more as the fight went on. Eventually I was able to time it right for when he came at me so I could strike first.
“He caught me with a right in the fourth that dropped me, but I didn’t feel too buzzed.
“Hopefully a win like this pushes me even further. I wanted to show my skills, but he was a formidable fighter. This was a great step-up fight for me to show people I’m not just a paper fighter.
“I’m looking for more opportunities with PBC. This was an honor to get to fight in the main event on Bounce TV.
“I’ll fight whoever my manager Al Haymon wants me to fight next. I can’t wait to get back in the gym and continue refining my skills.”
JUAN CARLOS ABREU
“I’m very disappointed in my performance. He’s a good fighter. I knew that, but I was surprised he was able to hurt me with his punches.
“I didn’t fight the way I wanted to. In the first round, I got head-butted and I never really recovered. I was buzzed the whole fight after that and when he hit me, it hurt me more than it normally would.”
ERICKSON LUBIN
“My corner helped me all fight. Every time I went to my corner they were helping me make the right adjustments.
“I kept telling myself that if (Lora) throws two punches then I’m going to throw four. If he threw four, I’d throw eight. I wanted to double his effort and show that I have more will than him. I didn’t want this fight to go this distance.
“Fighting on PBC on Bounce TV is going to help my career take off. I wanted to make a statement on TV so I could start stepping up my competition. I’m working towards a title shot.”
ORLANDO LORA
“I was not surprised at his power. I took his punches to my head very well, but my legs were shot. So I couldn’t move and had to stay in the pocket with him.
“He caught me in the beginning of the fight in the solar plexus and that took my legs away from me for the rest of the fight. He hit me so hard to the body I couldn’t breathe and my legs went numb.
“The stoppage was right. I would have loved to finish the ten rounds, but my corner knew I wasn’t going to go much longer.”
WILKY CAMPFORT
“I’ve always been a slow starter. At the start of the first round I wasn’t listening to my corner and (Montes) caught me off guard. But I got up and showed people what I came here to do.
“(Montes) is a knockout artist in his own right, but I’m a throwback fighter. I’ll fight anyone they put in front of me no matter how tough the other guy is.
“Fighting on this PBC card on Bounce TV is huge. These are the fights I need to be in, fighting a tough opponent and on TV. I showed the fans my heart and that I can punch.
“I want whoever they tell me to fight next. This is a business and I’m in it to win.”
RONALDO MONTES
“When I hurt him with that jab I thought I had him, but Campfort is a very strong guy.
“I got overconfident.  My plan was to box him but when I dropped him, I went in for the kill and got caught up in a brawl. That was not my plan. I was going to outbox him. It’s my fault.”

Fred Hickman (CNN Sports, ESPN) will again serve as host of Bounce TV’s PBC – The Next Round, while Fran Charles (MLB Network, NFL Network) calls the blow-by-blow action, and former Super Welterweight World Champion Austin “No Doubt” Trout to provide insight and analysis.
PBC – The Next Round, promoted by Warriors Boxing, will take place at Full Sail Live, the state-of-the-art performance venue on the campus of Full Sail University in Winter Park, Florida. The series showcases the sport’s future stars and champions. The series premiere on August 2 was a knockout success, setting a Bounce TV viewership record for a single telecast.
Tickets for the live event are on sale now and are priced at $50 for reserved seating and $25 for general admission and can be purchased by calling Warriors Boxing at(954) 985-1155 or by visiting www.warriorsboxing.com.  Tickets can also be purchased through Ticket Force by calling (877) 840-0457.
In the main event of this PBC – The Next Round, the former world title challenger, Guerrero is looking to build off of a victory over Abraham Han in April and towards another title fight.  Dominican Republic born Guerrero currently fights out of Los Angeles, CA.
Born in Osseo, Minnesota, Truax is an experienced veteran who has fought professionally since 2007. Fighting mostly in his home state of Minnesota, he was undefeated in his first 19 pro fights, which earned him a 2012 fight with Jermain Taylor.  Truax dropped a tough decision to Taylor, and has since put together a 7-1-1 record.  Truax’s only losses have come from world champions and he looks to get back in world title contention with an impressive performance on the PBC – The Next Round.
In the co-main event, a tall welterweight at 6′ 2″, James is undefeated as a professional.  Fighting out of Minneapolis, he has already been victorious twice in 2015, but faces the biggest test of his career when he faces Abreu on September 18th.
Abreu has developed a reputation as a knockout artist, having finished ten of his last 12 opponents inside the distance. The Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic native has taken down previously unbeaten fighters Miguel Taveras, Abraham Peralta and Puro Pairol in his five-year career.
As the opening battle of the PBC – The Next Round, a highly-regarded prospect with an exciting style, the 19-year-old Lubin has burst onto the scene looking to engage and finish opponents early.  Since November 2014, he had 2 first-round knockouts and outclassed 2 experienced veterans.  He will be fighting just outside of his hometown of Orlando, Florida when he takes on Lora on September 18.
Fighting out of Sinaloa, Mexico, Lora looks to make it three straight victories in 2015 when he takes on Lubin. Having faced world champions such as Keith Thurman and Paulie Malignaggi, the well-tested Lora will hope to take Lubin into deep waters when they square-off.

WINTER PARK, FLA. (August 2, 2015) – Juan Carlos Payano (17-0, 8 KOs) defeated Rau’shee Warren (13-1, 4 KOs) by 12-round split decision in the debut ofPBC: The Next Round on Bounce TV.

 

Further televised action featured the first round of a four-man super welterweight tournament. In the first bout John Jackson (20-2, 15 KOs) won a 10-round unanimous decision over Dennis Laurente (49-6, 30 KOs).

 

The second televised bout featured a hard-hitting scrap that saw Jorge Cota Lugo (25-1, 22 KOs) defeat Yudel Jhonson (17-2, 9 KOs) by a 10-round unanimous decision.

 

Jackson and Cota Lugo will now meet at a later date.

 

Here is what the fighters had to say Sunday following their bouts:

 

JUAN CARLOS PAYANO

 

“I feel strong. Every now and then he hit me with something that affected me, but I feel good.

 

“All of the cuts on my face are from headbutts.

 

“Warren is one of the best in this division, but there are lots of other good fighters in this division. I’ll fight any of them.

 

“I think the decision was fair.

 

“I don’t think we’ll do a rematch with Warren next, but my manager will decide.”

 

RAU’SHEE WARREN

 

“The one judge had it heavily for me, so I don’t know what was up with the others. I think the point deductions really hurt me. (Payano) said I hit him while he was down and it cost me.

 

“He was strong in the first four or five rounds, but then I figured him out.

 

“I want a rematch. I’ll be back strong.”

 

YUDEL JHONSON

 

“I’ve been boxing a long time. This may be my strongest fight yet though. I’ve never been hit that hard, so I was happy to go the distance.

 

“I was very ready for this fight, which was a good thing. I didn’t get knocked down as much as I could have been.

 

“I want to thank PBC and Al Haymon for this opportunity. This was a big test and I was ready. It was an excellent fight against a great Mexican fighter. I feel like a fight like tonightqualifies me to face anyone.

 

“I’m ready for anyone they want to put in front of me next. I just need another chance to prove myself.”

 

JORGE COTA LUGO

 

“When I was in the dogfight, I was just thinking about winning so that I can continue to support my family.

 

“My team told me to step it up midway through the fight and I listened to them. I was a little uncomfortable with all the holding and twisting, but we knew his style and were ready for him.

 

“This opportunity on PBC on Bounce TV only motivates me more. Half way through the fight I hurt my (left) hand, but I knew I had to get through it and my corner helped me.

 

“I haven’t seen (John) Jackson fight actually. I was only focused on my fight tonight. I hear he’s a strong fighter though, and now I can start preparing for him.”

 

JOHN JACKSON

 

“I was trying to listen to the corner’s advice. When I knocked him down in the third round I had been hearing my corner tell me to throw the uppercut. So I caught him on the chin with one and he went down.

 

“Going in to my fights everyone expects the knockout. If it comes it comes, but I really just want the win.

 

“I want to thank God and Al Haymon for being on Bounce TV. This is great exposure. After my loss against (Andy) Lee I want to continue to show people that I’m a more mature, composed fighter.

 

“For my next opponent, I know Yudel (Jhonson) from the amateurs, but I’d also like to face Jorge Cota Lugo.

 

“I’ll take a week or two off now. My brother fights soon and I’ll head straight into camp with him as soon as he’s ready after his fight. It won’t be a long rest.”

 

DENNIS LAURENTE

 

“I trained very hard so that when I got knocked down I would be able to recover easily.

 

“I think it was the right decision.

 

“I don’t know who comes next because I still have to defend my Oriental Pacific Boxing Federation (OPBF) junior middleweight crown.

 

“I’m sorry that I couldn’t win this one for my fans but I’ll be back.”

ORLANDO (July 31, 2015) – Fighters competing on the debut of PBC: The Next Round On Bounce TV took time out of their schedules to host a media roundtableFriday before their Sunday bouts at a sold out Full Sail Live at Full Sail University.

 

The main event on Sunday will showcase Juan Carlos “Baby Pacquiao” Payano (16-0, 8 KOs) taking on Rau’shee “Nuke” Warren (13-0, 4 KOs). The televised portion of the card will open with John Jackson (19-2, 15 KOs) facing Dennis Laurente (49-5, 30 KOs). The second televised bout will feature Yudel Jhonson (17-1, 9 KOs) squaring off against Jorge Cota Lugo (24-1, 22 KOs).

 

Below is what the fighters had to say Friday:

 

JUAN CARLOS PAYANO

 

“I am very prepared for this fight and have no injuries. I’m 100 percent ready. Training went very well. I am a warrior with the hunger to prevail and win. I’m ready to leave everything in the ring Sunday night.

 

“Warren merits a title shot. He’s one of the best fighters in the division. It’ll be a great fight. He won’t win, but it’ll be a great fight.

 

“I see a lot of errors in Warren’s style. That particular style of his has a lot of errors in it and I’ll attack them as I see them. He’s perfect for me.

 

“I am very grateful to be getting this opportunity. I am looking forward to the exposure for the weight class and for myself. It doesn’t make a difference if I’m on TV or not though. I will be coming out to rip his head off, as I always do against anyone.

 

“The Dominican Vice President contacted me yesterday and wished me luck. I have great support from the people of my country.”

 

RAU’SHEE WARREN

 

“Launching the PBC on Bounce TV series is a huge step for me. I feel like I have to put on a show for my fans and everybody out there that’s watching.  I’m looking to win every round.

 

“It was an honor fighting for the US three times in the Olympics as an amateur. I fought a lot of different fighters from all over the world, and I got to see lots of different styles. These days I feel like anyone new who steps in front of me is similar to something I’ve already seen.

 

“We put everything on the table in training camp. I just can’t wait for August 2. I hope that when the bell rings he’s as ready as I am because I’m putting everything into this one.

 

“I see a lot of things in Payano that I think I can take advantage of. I expect him to be aggressive, but his problem is that he’s going to be so worried about my speed he won’t even know what else I’m brining at him.

 

“This is free boxing for all.  I feel like PBC is making the sport more accessible for the fans. People have been hearing about the pay-per-view (PPV) fighters, but they haven’t really been seeing the undercard fighters or the lesser-known fighters.

 

“If some people out there don’t know me yet then they will for sure after they tune into Bounce TV this Sunday. My job is to show them who Rau’shee Warren is and force them to pay attention.”

 

YUDEL JHONSON

 

“Training went very well. There’s no excuses. I am ready to go. I am already on weight and my camp was perfect.

 

“Cota is a very typical Mexican fighter. He’s aggressive. He’s awkward sometimes, but he comes forward. He’s a tough warrior and I respect him. He’s ready to fight and so am I. It’s going to be a great fight.

 

“I am very grateful to be here and plan on maximizing this opportunity on Bounce TV. I want to show the fans that I’m the real deal.

 

“After I win this fight, I would like a chance for revenge against Willie Nelson. Tony Harrison underestimated him, but I won’t. That’s who I want to fight.

 

“The fans that haven’t seen me will see someone who truly loves a war. I never run from a tough fight.”

 

JORGE COTA LUGO

 

“Normally I don’t do that much sparring, but for this fight we did a lot because I feel like (Jhonson) is a smart fighter with a lot of movement. So we sparred more to make sure we’re prepared for this fight.

 

“I want to guarantee everyone a great show on Sunday night. Anyone who bought a ticket will see a great fight when I step into the ring.

 

“A world title shot is different. This was a very difficult training camp. We worked extremely hard to get ready for this fight, but it was a really tough camp.

 

“I’m very motivated for this fight. Based on the way I’ve been treated it seems like people are counting me out, but I’m hear to give it my best.”

 

JOHN JACKSON

 

“I feel good and confident. I’m sure he’s going to be tough and he’s going to bring it, but I’m ready.

 

“We did a couple things different for him because he’s a southpaw. I’ve been working personally on my style to adjust to his style.

 

“I think it’s a great matchup of our styles. He comes forwards and I come forward too. I think it’s a great matchup for the fans.

 

“I am honored by this opportunity to be here and televised for the world to see us. It’s a blessing and I thank God for it. This is a huge fight for me.

 

“I’m treating this fight like it’s a world title fight. Hopefully this fight will open doors for me. I’m very privileged to be here. This is also my first time fighting in Florida. A lot of fans from the Virgin Islands are coming out to see me.

 

“I have no problem making this weight. I’m’ normally two pounds over.

 

“I have no prediction for the fight. If I see an opportunity for the knockout I’ll go for it, but I’m ready to go 10 rounds. I will get that ‘W.’ That’s all I know.”

 

DENNIS LAURENTE

 

“My training was great. I was in camp for two months and I’m completely ready for this fight.

 

“John Jackson is a powerful puncher, but I have more experience. I watched the Andy Lee fight and I know how to beat him. I’m expecting a war with him, but I will stop him in eight rounds. That is my plan.

 

“I am excited for this opportunity. It’s a great opportunity. I have been on four Manny Pacquiao undercards, so I’ve been in big fights before, but this one is very important for me.

 

“I have received tremendous support from fans in the Philippines. The messages are coming in steady and I appreciate it very much. It makes me stronger.”
