While the mainstream media has painted Lundy (26-5-1, 13 KOs) as the second or third choice among the Crawford camp for their fighter’s first title defense of 2016 (contenders Mauricio Herrera, Viktor Postol, etc., reportedly turned down the fight), Lundy promises to steal the show when the two square off for Crawford’s World Boxing Organization (WBO) Junior Welterweight Title in the main event of HBO’s World Championship Boxing doubleheader at The Theater at Madison Square Garden, promoted by Top Rank and CES Boxing.

Instead of getting the Pacquiao fight and making a huge killing, it’s looking like Crawford, 28, will need to settle for a fight against lightweight Hank Lundy (26-5-1, 13 KOs) on February 27th on HBO at Madison Square Garden in New York.
