Hank Lundy Media Day

On February 16, 2016 –  the Marian Anderson Recreation Center hosted an afternoon media session with local boxing contender “Hammerin'” Hank Lundy. A handful of people made their way to the Graduate Hospital subsection of South Philly to take part in Lundy’s  final local public stop before heading to Madison Square Garden for a February 27th HBO showdown with the WBO’s 140 pound champion Terence “Bud” Crawford.

It is no secret that about 98% of the people in the boxing industry feel that Lundy has no chance of winning his upcoming fight. The Nebraska native Crawford currently rates at the Ring Magazines #6 pound-for-pound fighter in the world. The latest Vegas odds have Crawford in the neighborhood of a 20-to-1 favorite.

Those who know Hank know he couldn’t care less about what the public is saying. He did not disappoint when put in front of the crowd. The 32-year-old former John Bartram High running back spent over an hour answer questions from the local media. His main theme was talking about how he was going to knock out the champ! He also spoke about his career as the underdog, growing up hard in Philly and much more. Check it out below.

It was an all-Philly crowd with the exception of sparring partner Issouf Kinda and his adviser Ann Daryl who currently reside in New York City.  The contingent consisted mostly of Hank’s stable mates from the gym, a handful of fans and some local boxing media. The attendees were treated to a post Q&A live working and sparring session.

Unfortunately there was no sign of  Lundy’s promoter Jimmy Burchfield or representatives from CES Boxing. No manager in sight and not a soul from HBO. Just those he worked with in the gym since the early days and a few others he met along the way. Maybe that can be chalked up to the inconvenient 2 pm schedule time. Maybe it is an indicator of something else…

Despite the long odds, this is a 14-year-in-the-making opportunity for Lundy. Yes, he needs to fight the perfect fight to win. Yes, the judges and networks will all be in favor of the other guy. Just keep in mind that Lundy has never fallen flat in any of his fights – win, lose or draw.

The pressure is all on Crawford to do his job. Lundy on the other hand has a chance to shock the boxing world. I’ll be ringside at the Garden to cover the fight. Be sure to tune in to HBO if you can’t make it live!
