Hank Lundy is one of the top lightweight contenders in the sport. He is also one of the top talkers in the game as well. To interview Lundy and simply put quotes into an article on paper does not do him justice. The man who refers to himself in the first person by his nickname “Hammerin Hank” needs to be heard to be truly appreciated. Love him or hate him, the man is entertaining.
John Disanto, of Philly Boxing History, and I caught up with Hank at the Marion Anderson Rec Center in South Philadelphia. Lundy put in rounds of sparring with local Philly prospects and plenty of training as he prepares for his upcoming bout this Friday against Dannie Williams on ESPN2’s Friday Night Fights (for a full preview of this week’s FNF see The Boxing Tribune’s Fox Doucette’s FNF preview). Lundy takes on Williams from the Foxwoods Resort in Mashantucket, CT for his NABF title and the number one contender position for the WBC lightweight title.
