Hammerin’ Hank gets hosed by the judges in Los Angeles

On July 12, 2015 at the L.A. Sports Arena, Mauricio Herrera won a disputed 5th round technical decision over Hank Lundy to claim the NABF 140 lb title.

Hank was kicking that ass early but Herrera did storm back after being nailed by a questionable head butt that caused a nasty meat flap above his eye. This cut caused the ringside doctor top call an early halt to the bout. Final scores were 48-47 x 2 and an even card at 48-48.

Do you think The Hammer got hosed on the scorecards or did Herrera deserve the nod?

Early blow back from this controversy include a potential lawsuit from Team Lundy against promoter Golden Boy Promotion and Herrera suffering an eye injury that could possibly send him into retirement. 

What are your thoughts on the fight action, referee cutting the fight short and judges decision? — with Mauricio Herrera and Hammerin Hank Lundy.

  2. Hello guys Culmer Gee, Larry Tornambe, no real fighters like when Culmer Gee, or myself Ivan Robinson was out there we knew what it was to be right ad do what you need to do to win

  3. Philly Keith Page I don’t think he did as Herrera was just Tryna get him to gas his self out but hank was smart not to if anything I think hank won but I wouldn’t have been mad if it was a draw and make Em do it again and I think jack Reiss handling of the fight was bullshit and normally I like the guy

  4. Easy for me to say on the outside but it looked like Herrera was legitimately hurt when first cut. I thought Hank was going to knock him out. Officiating was a bit shaky but I do agree with the stoppage. That eye looked like old meatloaf. Scorecards were bullshit. No doubt. Stuff like this that drives me crazy. Philly fighters need to stop taking these fights on the road. Unless you’re undefeated they are likely to be treated like dirt. In the real world No way Hank lost that fight. But once it was stopped I was certain the shaft was coming. Business as usual in this crusty ass game.

  5. Hank won fair and square! THE Judges Ain’t see it that way and that’s just shows u how dirty of a business this sport we love so much is. Hammerin Hank Lundy keep working bro. U deserve and will capture a Title. U looked good Saturday nite. Ur performance was on a

    1. So Ramon Flores let’s run with ur theory that hank was leading with his head tell me what did Mauricio do to win 4 of those rounds please do tell me ………:::: he ain’t do shit best round I seen him have was that 5th round which wasn’t finish and he ain’t wake up until the 4th … And of course ur gonna say the guy won u from riverside ca……. But in philly we can call it how it is I feel like he beat Danny Garcia but he ain’t beat hank

    2. Bringing hank back on the postal/ Mathysee undercard would be great against a solid fighter have some mini tournament postal/mathysee winner vs MH Or vise versa to settle the score with postal and MH would be good for the fans

  6. this is why i didnt like the fight put on hbo latino they ant gona let hank walk away with a win while there guy got screwed past couple fights with judges and networks ! It was his turn to get a controversial win and he did..let see them do it again in philly? Haha doubt it ant even gona happen bethlehem! He wont even get a rematch

  7. I had it 3-2 Lundy… Herrera did some good work, particularly later on with the body work.. But Lundy was landing some nice clean shots to the face.. I wouldn ‘t argue much with a draw, but I do NOT think Mauricio Herrera won…

  8. Compa Mauricio Herrera. Esto fue un aviso. No puede confiarse tanto en las peleas. Empeso usted muy lento y desmotivado. Sin usar el jab q tanto lo caracteriza. Y eso le puede costar caro lo he visto pelear en varias ocaciones y la verdad esta ultima me quedo a dever. Saludos. Usted es chingon me gusta su estilo

  9. Why in the world would you grant a re-match to some trash talking punk. I have a suggestion Hank. Learn how to let your skills do the talking. They should change his name from Hammering Hank to Head Butting Hank.

  10. Richard Tocher Even watch the fight? There’s no way if you score 5 rounds of that, even the small part of the 5th that Herrera won 3 rounds, no way. Richard, go to youtube and watch Lundy easily beat Viktor Postol in Ukraine, walk away with a decision loss, then beat 31-1 Ajose easily, who had a 10 round war with Matthysse, walks away with a SD loss to Dulorme, who he broke to set up for Crawford, Herrera did not want to fight, the ref dint’ want him to, nor the judges want him to lose – ON THE HEADBUTT – if you paid attention Hank did something interesting, which was come out southpaw the first entire round, that’s when the headbutt happened as they usually do, righty vs lefty, then he came out orthodox second round, switched up 3rd round, ect – Herrera stopped fighting back against ropes, So I dunno what you’re talking about

  11. Everybody have to remember when they use you as a decor for other fighter you have to beat the hell out of other fighters to get the decision if you leave it in the judges hands you lost the fight because they don’t want to give it to you

  12. Can’t win a round by walking backward, each time Herrera threw hank fired combos. No way Herrera won 3 rounds maybe 1st n 5th. That’s what happen with no boxing commission to over see like other US sports. It seems like 95% of time the name of the card get the nod no matter how the fight turn out. Ex. Vera Vs JCC Jr. In 2013…

  13. Hank definitely won the fight on at least at the worst a draw. There’s no way he should have lost but look at the senario. In his hometown. Fight promoted by golden boy. On HBO Latino. Eric Mendez from Golden Boy in the ring with him after the fight. Money talks. Boxing today is all about politics and money

  14. Mauricio Herrera won and doesn’t need a rematch to a dude who might make him retire due to headbutts. He was out of focus due to the cut but was landing combos consistently. He won the decision cause it was clear he had more class and was the better fighter even after he almost lost his eyelid.

  15. We come to fight yes. The fuck Herrera kept backing up for??? Now y’all making excuses about the head butts. Man come on, this boxing. Only one man came to fight. But it’s clear who the ref, the judges, and golden boy wanted to win the fight. It hurts win you beat a man far and square only to get pencil whipped. Hammerin Hank Lundy put in work and did that hands down.

    1. Maybe if he wasn’t so Ghetto they would of given him the fight. It was time for a decision to sway Mauricio’s way. No one knew who Hank Lundy was until he faught Mauricio Herrera.

    2. You really think hank lundy won? What fight did u watch, first round was control by MH or even at worst , second and third lundy with the head butts, MH got his composure and whipped him in the 4 and 5th .Lundy should be happy if didn’t go further ? Did u not see the momentum shifting ? Also did u see MH Complaint one time? Take a look at the cut. It’s prize fighting not pride.

  16. Mayfield a hugger..hammer gives good head..I can’t even say positive facts about these 2 fighters..not to mention Danny
    HAMMER TEAM..NO CLASS..NOT TO MENTION HIS WIFE..SMH. …nothing like a good clean professional fight. ..#teamherrera too has a hard time biting our tongues w such impulsive talkers..geeesh
