Lundy: I'm Ready For Anyone at 135, 140 or Even 147

UNCASVILLE, CT -- In the main event at the Mohegan Sun Casino in Connecticut, world-rated contender Henry Lundy took another step towards a long awaited world title shot by stopping the son of legendary Hall of Famer Pipino Cuevas, Gerardo Pipino Cuevas, Jr., at 2:23 of the second round.
 
Lundy, 138 lbs., Philadelphia, PA, stalked Cuevas, 138 ½ lbs., Mexico City, Mexico, from the opening bell and never let him get comfortable. The win brings Lundy’s record to 25-3-1, 12 KO’s, while Cuevas falls to 17-12, 15 KO’s.
 
“I am ready for anyone,” said Lundy. “135 is where I want to be but if I have to go up to 140 or even 147, I don’t care, I want a world title belt around my waist.”
 
World rated WIBA International champion Shelly Vincent, 122 ¾ lbs., New London, CT, returned to the ring for the first time in six months with a unanimous decision win over veteran former title contender Lakysha Williams, 122 ½ lbs., Philadelphia, PA. The win raised Vincent’s undefeated mark to 11-0, 1 KO while Williams falls to a deceptive 9-19-3, 1 KO record.
 
In the most impressive win of his young career, Jimmy Williams, 152 ¼ lbs., New Haven, CT, scored an impressive first round knockout victory over cross-town rival Christian Lao, 152, New Haven, CT. The time of the stoppage was 1:57 and with the win, Williams upped his record to 6-0-1, 3 KO’s and added the Connecticut State Super Welterweight Title to his resume. Lao falls to 5-3-1, 2 KO’s.
 
World-rated female welterweight Aleksandra Magdziak Lopes, 144 ¼ lbs., Marshfield, MA, had her hands full with undefeated Althea Saunders, 140 ½ lbs., Atlantic City, NJ, in their six round fight. Both had their moments of success, and it was a very hard fight to score as neither landed any really telling blows. In the end the judges called it a draw, 58-57 Lopes, 58-56 Saunders and 57-57. The draw leaves Lopes with a record of 10-2-2, 1 KO, while Saunders suffers her first blemish at 3-0-1.
 
In his first fight in over a year, Kevin Cobbs, 183 lbs., Willimantic, CT, used his superior reach and conditioning to ward off the relentless charge of Willis Lockett, 189 lbs., Tacoma Park, MD, in their four round fight. Lockett landed some big shots, but Cobbs was able to answer back every time. In the end Cobbs walked away with the unanimous decision by scores of 39-37, 40-36 and 39-37. Cobbs’ record now stands at 8-1, 2 KO’s while Lockett falls to 13-14-5, 5 KO’s.
 
In the evening’s opening professional fight, Joe Wilson, 151 ½ lbs., Hartford, CT, and Ethan Pena, 153 lbs., Providence, RI, battled hard in their four round encounter, but in the end it was the slick boxing and defense of Wilson that won the judges over. Pena had success, especially to the body, but Wilson was the busier of the two in pretty much every round. Final scores were 39-37, 39-37 and 40-36. The win pushed Wilson’s record to 2-1, while Pena falls to 2-2, 1 KO.
 
The card was presented by Jimmy Burchfield's Classic Entertainment & Sports and the matchmaker was Ted Panagiotis. CES Boxing returns next Friday, June 6th at the Twin River Casino in Lincoln, RI. That show is headlined by a New England light heavyweight championship fight between two former title challengers, Rich Gingras and Jaime Velazquez. Tickets are available by calling 401-724-2253 or visiting CESBoxing.com.

Lundy is good... but his chin is a little questionable.

Lundy maybe ready but his chin ain't.......

I like Lundy, I think he can cause some serious problems to anyone at 140. I'm not sure about 147 though...

I wouldn't mind seeing a rematch with John Molina. The first fight was entertaining, do it again.
