No one in the 135- or 140-pound division has answered the call yet, but Lundy (24-3-1, 11 KOs) remains one of the busiest fighters in boxing. The 5-foot-7 lightweight, more commonly known as “Hammerin'” Hank, will return to the ring Saturday, May 31st, 2014 when he battles Mexican veteran Pipino Cuevas Jr. in the main event of Classic Entertainment & Sports’ star-studded pro-am boxing event at Mohegan Sun.
“The whole idea is to stay busy, and stay sharp,” said Lundy, who is only three months removed from a huge win over Angelo Santana in front of a worldwide audience on Showtime’s ShoBox: The Next Generation. “That way, when I get the call to fight for a world title, I’ll be ready to fight right then and there.”
