Hank Lundy faces John Delperdang on 12/30

A lot of people think “Hammerin’” Hank Lundy is a little crazy, including his doctor, especially after Lundy returned to the gym to start hitting the heavy bag just three weeks removed from major knee surgery.

To survive and advance in the sport of boxing, one must be a bit bold – a little daring now and then – and be unafraid to take risks. The 32-year-old Lundy (26-6-1, 13 KOs) has never backed down from a challenge or shied away from confrontation, whether it’s moving up to an entirely different weight class to challenge one of boxing’s best pound-for-pound fighters for a shot at a world title or traveling more than 5,000 miles to Europe to face an undefeated prospect in his own backyard.
