Lundy: The fight will happen

By John DiSanto – Philly Boxing History (.com)

In the middle of setting up a gym visit with South Philly’s Hank Lundy, I read on FightNews that boxing manager Ivan Cohen was attempting to stop Hank’s upcoming junior welterweight title shot against Lucas Matthysse. Lundy and Cohen have argued the status of the management contract between them for quite a while now. Cohen claims to be Lundy’s legal manager, while Lundy claims the relationship has been terminated.

In any case, when Lundy returned my call about us getting together at the gym for an interview, I couldn’t help but ask the natural quote machine for a comment about the FightNews story and Cohen’s statement. Lundy said, “This guy (Cohen) is just trying to back his way into the fight, and make himself relevant. He doesn’t have a leg to stand on. One thing’s certain, the fight (with Matthysse) is going to happen on January 26th.”

Stay tuned for more. Hank Lundy fights are ALWAYS entertaining – inside the ring and out.
