This Friday night at The New Daisy Theater in Memphis, Tennessee, one of the best Lightweight prospects in the world will be on display for the whole nation to see as “Hammerin” Hank Lundy will battle Tyrese Hendrix (18-0-1, 7 KO’s of Gainesville, Georgia) in a bout that will feature two undefeated Lightweights.
The bout will be seen all over America on ESPN 2 at 10pm eastern/7pm Pacific.
Lundy of Philadelphia has a record of 17-0-1 with ten knockouts has been on a roll and relishes the opportunity to knock off yet another undefeated fighter.
He has already defeated two undefeated fighters (Esteban Almarez and a drubbing stoppage of then 10-0 Jason Cintron) and had a disputed draw with then 8-0 Darnell Jiles in Jiles hometown, which is the only blemish on the Lundy’s impressive ledger.
“I can’t wait for this fight on Friday night”, said Lundy. “I have had a great camp at Joe Hand Boxing Gym with world class sparring. I am going to tune Tyrese up like a Jimmy Hendrix guitar.
"I see the championship in my near future. This bout is for the NABO title so a win gets me ranked by the WBO. I know the two champions Juan Manuel Marquez and Michael Katsidis better be watching because I am gunning for them after I take care of Tyrese.”
Lundy is very excited about the prospect of fighting in Memphis.
“Memphis is a great town and the fans on Beale Street will get the opportunity to watch the best thing to hit this area since Elvis. That ring on Friday night will be my Graceland and I will decide when it’s time for Hendrix to leave.”
Lundy is managed by Ivan Cohen, who two decades ago was the manager of IBF Jr. Middleweight champion Buster Drayton.
“Lundy has so much natural talent and he works extremely hard in the gym. He takes nothing for granted and that’s why we believe that Hendrix will be on “sleeping on That Midnight Train to Georgia” after Hank takes care of him.” said Cohen.
Lundy is trained by long time Philadelphia trainer Sloan Harrison and strength and conditioning coach Brian Cohen.
Lundy just added one of the best up and coming trainers, Danny Davis who is known for his extraordinaire pad work which improved Lundy’s already lightning hand speed.
