Lundy to Broner: I rule this division

Lightweight contender “Hammerin'” Hank Lundy has issued a stern warning to former WBO super featherweight champion Adrien Broner, who lost his title last Friday on the scale and plans to move up to 135 pounds. Lundy called Broner “unprofessional” for failing to make weight and warned, “I run this weight class! If you think you can just move up and jump over me, it ain’t happening. Don’t run. You could’ve mentioned my name on HBO. Instead, you took the easy way out. Just go on and keep fighting who you’re fighting. If he fought half the competition I’ve faced, he’d be dead in his tracks. Until I unify these titles, I rule this division, and I’m going to be here for a long time.” Lundy (22-1-1, 11 KOs) will meet Ray Beltran (25-6, 17 KOs) Friday in the 10-round ESPN2 main event.

A few days before his big showdown with Robert “The Ghost” Guerrero, welterweight Selcuk Aydin has warned people not to be surprised when he beats the hometown favorite on Saturday night in San Jose, California. “Many see me as a longshot in the fight against Guerrero. I’ve read that it would be a big surprise if I should win on Saturday. But that’s only because people don’t know who I am and what I can do. I’m Selcuk Aydin. I’m the world champion. I’m certainly no underdog. And that I win on Saturday shouldn’t surprise anyone!” Aydin has complained several times in recent weeks that the American media doesn’t pay enough attention to him. “After Saturday, everyone will know who Selcuk Aydin is!” he stated.

Will an MMA champ be born on the wrestling mats in London?

The United States Olympic freestyle wrestling team has been smacking heads, snapping necks, slamming bodies, and winning medals for 108 years. It all started at the 1904 Games in St. Louis, Missouri when the now famous wrestling event debuted and was contested in seven weight categories. Not to brag, but the United States of America won all 21 medals – gold, silver, and bronze (U-S-A! U-S-A!). To be honest, all 42 competitors involved in that original Olympic outing were from the United States. . . Click here for more by Jordan Newmark, UFC.com

Photos: PR Best

“The War” between former two time world champion Rafael Marquez and former superbantamweight champion Wilfredo Vazquez Jr. on August 4 in Bayamon, Puerto Rico, was postponed due to an injury suffered by Marquez in his right hand.

“Rafael Marquez is injured and he will not fight on August 4 because he needs recovery and we have postponed the show”, Peter Rivera, PR Best Boxing Promotions vice-president, said. “This happens in boxing. We have the same situation in 2010 when Marquez was going to fight against Juanma Lopez. He suffered an injury and the fight was postponed from September to November.”

Rivera said that “we have a tentative date, October 6 in the same venue, coliseo Ruben Rodriguez in Bayamon, Puerto Rico. We are working from now for this card.”

As for the fight between former world titlist, Roman “Rocky” Martinez and Miguel Beltran Jr., for the WBO NABO junior lightweight title, Rivera said that “we are looking to make this bout in late August.”

Philly fighters in spotlight Friday

Three of Philadelphia’a brightest up-and-comers will be on display Friday on ESPN’s Friday Night Fights in Atlantic City, N.J., when Jimmy Burchfield’s Classic Entertainment & Sports presents, “Title Wave,” live professional boxing from Resorts Casino Hotel. In addition to main eventer “Hammerin’” Hank Lundy (22-1-1, 11 KOs), 29-year-old super middleweight prospect Farah Ennis (19-1, 12 KOs), who will star in Friday’s nationally-televised 10-round co-feature against Richard Pierson, and bantamweight Miguel Cartagena (5-0, 3 KOs), who will put his unbeaten record on the line against Jose Rivera in a six-round bout.

Perhaps the most unique angle with three Philadelphia fighters on Friday’s card is the fact each one is from a different neighborhood. Lundy was raised in South Philadelphia, where he got his start in boxing by knocking out a would-be bully in the streets. Ennis grew up in Germantown, a small neighborhood in the northwest section, and Cartagena was raised in North Philadelphia – the birthplace of Joe Frazier – where roughly half the population lives below the poverty line.
