Lundy-Matthysee in jeopardy?

The proposed January bout between WBC interim super lightweight champion Lucas Matthysse(32-2, 30 KOs) and world ranked lightweight Henry Lundy (22-2-1, 20 KOs) appears not to be as finalized as some may have thought. Lundy’s Manager Ivan Cohen released the following statement to Fightnews.com:

“I just want to clear the air about some things in terms of Hank Lundy and the news that he is supposed to be fighting Matthysse in January. First of all I am the legal Manager of Hank Lundy and have been since July 29th, 2010. I was never informed of or have seen a contract for this fight. I dont want this fight to happen anyways because its a horrible fight for Lundy and one he will lose for sure. Hank should be fighting at 135 pounds where he was ranked number 1 in the world prior to losing his last fight with Raymundo Beltran. Speaking of that fight I did not approve that fight and look what happened. The only reason the Lundy-Beltran fight was not stopped by the judge was that the judge ruled that the paperwork of promoter Boxing360 was in order but the filing of the paperwork the week of the fight was too short of notice. So he could not order that the fight be stopped. The proper paperwork has since being filed and that matter is on track now to being handled.”
