Lundy Wants Beltran Rematch on Broner-DeMarco Bill
By Ryan Burton
When lightweight contender "Hammerin'" Hank Lundy caught wind that Raymundo Beltran was making an appearance on the most recent edition of BoxingScene's official audio show The Boxing Lab, the Philadelphia native couldn't resist the urge to call in and ask for a rematch. Beltran scored an upset victory against Lundy this past July when he pulled out a majority decision.
Lundy said that the perfect time for a rematch would be November 17th on the Adrien Broner-Antonio DeMarco undercard that takes place in Atlantic City.
"We can fight on the Broner card. I'm here putting in work helping get Broner ready. He's going to bring that title back.
"I hear he (Beltran) is running his mouth. Let's see if he is man enough to fight me again. Let's see if he will step up and fight me again. I'm going back to being myself, the Mad Boxer. I'm back to being me," Lundy told The Boxing Lab.
Lundy feels that he beat himself in the Beltran fight and that a rematch would produce a different result.
"Ray Beltran can only do what I let him do. He could only hit me when I was on the ropes. When the real Hank was in there he couldn't touch me."
Lundy and Broner had previously waged a war on Twitter but are now on good terms. Lundy said its only a matter of time before he they are both on even ground.
"It's cold sh*t. You got two elite fighters. People think cuz one guy is on ESPN and the other isn't that only one guy got skills. They picked me to work with him for a reason. hHe's a champion and I'm going to be a champion. I guarantee with the work he's getting with me that he's gonna win that title," Lundy concluded.

Lundy has problems, he thinks he beat himself. He's in denial. Beltran beat him and everyone saw it. Now he wants to talk himself out of being the loser. That trick never works. Let's just hope the new Lundy trains…Comment by raf727 on 10-10-2012
[QUOTE=Realizniguhnit;12592814]WTH!!? So Lundy goes from calling Broner out to becoming a mere sparring partner for him lmao[/QUOTE] A 'mere sparring partner'? Bro, that's how alot of pro's make money in between fights, welcome to boxing.Comment by ddangerous on 10-10-2012
[QUOTE=ironmike2012;12592812][B]Bring on the rematch, the first fight was good, both fighters almost stopped each other[/B]. Not like Beltran has alot of options anyway (no name and dangerous). Whoever wins would be in line for the Broner-DeMarco winner, so why not?[/QUOTE]…Comment by .:: JSFD26 ::. on 10-10-2012
[quote=New England] hank "human sales pitch" lundy in hank we still trust. [/quote] Screw Lundy. Hes hopeless. But this is propably Beltran's only chance to get a fight. Doubt he will be on HBO tho since they rejected Broner-Beltran originally.…Comment by Realizniguhnit on 10-10-2012
