According to Lou DiBella, his fighter Ajose Olusegun will fight "Hammerin' Hank Lundy on July 19 at Rockingham Park in New Hampshire on ESPN's "Friday Night Fights."

"This is an absolutely fantastic card for ESPN," said DiBella. "In the main event, you have two proven contenders, with the winner taking a major step toward challenging for a world championship in the loaded 140-pound division."

Olusegun (31-1, 14 KOs) was originally slated to fight Mercito Gesta, but the latter withdrew with an injury. Olusegun was stopped by Lucas Matthysse in September 2012.

Lundy (22-3-1, 11 KOs) was slated to fight Matthysse in January on Showtime, but the fight was called off amid managerial issues for the Philly fighter. Lundy is coming off a decision loss to Viktor Postol in Ukraine. Lundy has lost two consecutive bouts.

Lundy will struggle to live with the physicality of Ajose. I see a late KO.

happy 2c Ajose getting xposure & a decent $$ bout after the WBC put him off so long, & even though he lost his shot, he's got enough2 decision Lundy, he's not as heavy handed as some think...could shape up 2b 1 of the better espn shows...
