Super lightweight top rated contender “Hammerin'” Hank Lundy (25-4-1, 12 KOs) of Philadelphia will look to make his case in the division as he takes on former WBA interim super lightweight world champion Lake Elsinore’s Mauricio “El Maestro” Herrera (21-5, 7 KOs) this Saturday night at the Los Angeles Sports Arena live on HBO Latino. We caught up with Lundy as he talked about camp and his upcoming fight as he is days away from his clash with Herrera.

“It’s a fight where everyone wants to see two warriors. I am coming out on top,” Hank Lundy told Fightnews.com. “He said I am another guy from Philadelphia and that he is going to teach me but I am not Danny Garcia. I am another type of monster and he will find out July 11th.”

Lundy trained in the “City of Brotherly Love” in preparation for Herrera. “Camp was fun man. I have been on weight for like three weeks. I am in good shape and ready to go to war,” Lundy said. “It’s been four months training good, looking good, sparring with Shawn Porter. I gave him all the hell. You saw what happened, what he did to Broner.” (more…)

Former female world champion Mariana “Barbie” Juarez will fight for the WBC International super flyweight crown against Vanesa Taborda on Saturday at the Acapulco Convention Center. Juarez is targeting the WBC super flyweight or bantamweight titles. She particularly wants to face current WBC superfly champ Zulina Muñoz, who was unable to fight for different reasons in March and defended the belt in over a year. “The super flyweight belt is resting at home,” said Juarez.

In the supporting bouts, local lightweights Marcos Villasana Jr (15-6, 9 KOs) and Jesus Cruz Bibiano (15-10, 10 KOs) will fight an eight rounder where a divided crowd is expected. Villasana is the son of former world champion of the same name.

Mickey Roman opponent named: David Martinez

By David Finger

One of the busiest months of boxing in El Paso’s history will kick off this Saturday at Buchanan’s Event Center as WBC #4 ranked Super Featherweight Miguel “Mickey” Roman (50-11, 37 KOs) headlines against veteran David “El Finito” Martinez (18-5-1, 3 KOs) in a ten round affair. Although Roman’s original opponent pulled out, leaving a last minute scramble for an opponent, the selection of Martinez may still provide some fireworks and answers to questions fans have about Roman. Martinez is coming into the fight on the heels of a six and a half year layoff as well as the loser of two straight prior to his layoff. However, he is a fighter who has shown promise in the past and does have the tools to possibly give Roman some trouble. (more…)

“For this fight I will be at 168, but I am not sure what I will weigh for my fights in the future,” says former world champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. “I’m ready for less than 168 to face opponents like Canelo [Alvarez].” Chavez, Jr. (48-2-1, 32 KOs) meets fellow Mexican brawler Marcos Reyes (33-2, 24 KOs) in a 10-round bout on Showtime July 18 from the Don Haskins Center in El Paso, Texas.

Chavez Jr. is the first fighter to train at Robert Garcia’s new boxing academy in Riverside, which opened June 8. Garcia formerly trained all of his boxers at his well-known gym in Oxnard, Calif. “I think Robert Garcia was the best option for me after my last fight. He speaks Spanish and knows the Mexican style. He has trained a lot of champions and I have a good connection with him. I missed the basics of boxing training for the last fight. Since I had such a long layoff, I needed to get back to the basics and I never did. (more…)

Former WBA interim super lightweight world champion Mauricio “El Maestro” Herrera (21-5, 7 KOs) and super lightweight contender “Hammerin” Hank Lundy (25-4-1, 12 KOs) worked out for media Wednesday afternoon at the Westside Boxing Gym in Los Angeles in preparation for their fight on Saturday at the Los Angeles Sports Arena live on HBO Latino.

“Camp was good. Exhausting and long. We had plenty of time to train for this fight. We’re ready for Hank Lundy” Herrera told Fightnews.com. “Hank Lundy is a tough fighter. We are ready. We trained hard. Lundy done all the talking he’s done, he’s going to see it’s not easy in there.”

“I feel great. I feel prepared and ready to beat Lundy and if he wants to brawl, box or do whatever, I’m ready. I feel there is a big possibility that I can stop him.”

Lundy told us, “Camp was fun. Man I have been on weight for like three weeks. I’m in good shape and ready to go to war! He may have beaten another Philly fighter, Danny Garcia, but he’s got to realize I’m another type of animal. I’m a throwback fighter and on Saturday, Herrera is going to see what Hammerin’ Hank is all about.”

“I am coming into his turf with my back against the wall. So I will come in there and show everybody what I do. I come into people’s town, search and destroy, steal the show, and shut it down!” (more…)

Cruz stops Cardona; remains unbeaten

Photos: Ed Diller/DiBella Entertainment

On Wednesday night, DiBella Entertainment (DBE) hosted another action-packed Broadway Boxing card in front of a raucous sold-out crowd at NYC’s famed B.B. King Blues Club & Grill. In the main event, unbeaten super featherweight Bryant “Peewee” Cruz, of Port Chester, NY scored a TKO5 over Martin Cardona, 129.4 lbs., of Tucson, AZ.

Cardona attempted to box and move, Cruz, 131 lbs., effortlessly cut the ring off, often countering his adversary’s jab with quick overhand rights. Cruz took advantage whenever he had Cardona trapped against the ropes, digging shots to the midsection. The powerful left hook of Cruz was on display as well and it was clear that Cardona was breaking down. Feeling that their charge was sustaining too much punishment, Cardona’s corner elected not to send him out for the fifth frame, resulting in a TKO victory for Cruz. With the victory, Cruz improved to 15-0 (8 KOs), while Cardona fell to 19-6 (14 KOs). (more…)

Thurman: I deserve to fight him, but I don’t need Mayweather in my career

Text, video, photo: Przemek Garczarczyk

World champion Keith Thurman (25-0, 21 KO) was every reporter’s dream, answering every question from every journalist in attendance at the “Punch Boxing for Fitness” club in Tampa. For more than an hour “One Time” passionately explained that whatever he was able to achieve in boxing is because of his love to the sport.”I love what I do. I do all I can to be better, to show all fans what I can do. This is who I am,” said Thurman.

When asked about the possibility of fighting Floyd Mayweather Jr, Thurman responded, “I deserve to fight him, but I don’t need Mayweather in my career and Mayweather doesn’t really need Keith in his career. But it is an entertaining fight for the American public, it is an all-American battle – no doubt. But Amir Khan is also a great fight for me. Shawn Porter is a great fight me, as well as Marcos Maidana or Kell Brook are great fights for the fans.”
