Lundy: I respect Danny Garcia. We’re both Philadelphia guys, but if I win, I want Matthysse

This Friday night, in the main event of ESPN’s Friday Night Fights in Salem, NH, longtime lightweight contender “Hammerin'” Hank Lundy (22-3-1, 11 KOs) will face WBC #3-rated junior welterweight Olusegun Ajose (31-1, 14 KOs) in a ten-round junior welterweight showdown. “This fight means a lot. I just came off two recent losses that I thought I won-especially the one in Ukraine,” said Lundy. “I really beat that guy [Viktor Postol], but I didn’t get a fair shake. For this fight, I’m going to go in there and show the world that this isn’t the last of Hammerin’ Hank. I’m a force at 140 now.”

Lundy continued, “I’m looking to prove that Hammerin’ Hank is one of the elite fighters in the world. Everyone knows [Olusegun] from taking a beating against Matthysse. I’ve already been in the top 10 in the world and this will be the second time once I beat this guy. I’m a world-class fighter and a soon-to-be world-class champion. I’m going in there to give it my all.

“It’s a do-or-die fight and I’m letting everything hang out on Friday. I’m going to come in there and put on a show and get a win against a guy ranked in the WBC. It’ll be real big to come in there and handle business. That puts me in the #2 or #3 spot and gives me a chance to fight for a title. “I’ll give props where props are due. I respect Danny Garcia. We’re both Philadelphia guys, but if I win, I want Matthysse. Everyone is running from the big bad wolf. Hammerin’ Hank won’t run from no one. Let’s fight. Then I’ll go from there and fight the champ.”
