Hank Lundy Targets Tim Bradley: I Would Destroy Him!

By Mike Coppinger

As BoxingScene.com’s Rick Reeno reported last week, Tim Bradley is being considered for the Nov. 12 Manny Pacquiao-Juan Manuel Marquez 3 undercard, should Bradley resolve his dispute with Gary Shaw.

Should Bradley appear on the card, “Hammerin” Hank Lundy (21-1-1, 11 KOs) is chomping at the bit to face the undefeated junior welterweight.

“Let’s get it,” the 27-year-old Lundy said. “They’re not going to take that fight with me. His manager [Cameron Dunkin] knows exactly who I am and they won’t fight me. I’ll box his head off. Everyone says  he can punch, but he can’t really punch. I’ll walk right through him. If he’s man enough to fight me, I’ll come up to 140.”

As for Bradley criticizing Floyd Mayweather’s knockout of Victor Ortiz, Lundy finds it laughable, considering Bradley’s reputation for head-butting.

“I’ve seen something where he made a comment saying Floyd’s punch was unsportsmanlike conduct,” Lundy recalled. “How can you say that when you head-butt 24/7? He fought Devon Alexander, and Alexander showed me in that fight he really doesn’t have any heart.

“You put a real guy in front of Timothy Bradley that’s gonna fight, you’ll see some difference, and I’ll be that guy. If Timothy Bradley wanna fight Hank Lundy, let’s do it. He won’t even get that close to me to head-butt me. I would destroy him. I would kill him.”

Bradley would be the only reason I buy this PPV. Hope this happens. I wouldn't want to see him fight Lundy though. He has more to prove. But Soto would be a better come back fight. Winner gets WBC title…

[QUOTE=Convicted_Felon;11227331]Hank is not on that level yet. Granted he just scored a KO over a former world champion, he was a world champion that was there to be hit, and has been knocked out before. Don't go looking for Bradley.…
