Weights From A/C: Hank Lundy 136.2*, Ray Beltran 134.3

By Jake Donovan

Hours after his legal team came up aces in a New York state courtroom this morning, Hank Lundy came up craps at the scales.

The lightweight contender came in at 136.2 lb for his ESPN2-televised main event with Raymundo Beltran, 1.2 lb over the contracted 135 lb lightweight limit. Beltran came in at 134.3 lb. for the 10-round lightweight bout, which headlines Friday Night Fights live from Resorts Hotel & Casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey.

Lundy has one hour to lose the extra weight, according to Boxingscene.com video guru Bill Emes, who is live at the scene. 

The weigh-in took place at 5:24 ET (local time), which means Lundy has until 6:24 ET to get down to 135 lb. or below. Failure to do so will result in a fine - to be split between the New Jersey State Athletic Commission and the opposing fighter (Beltran) - along with the decision of whether the fight goes on as planned or with further weight stipulations.

The incident comes on the heels of a court ruling in his favor, as a motion was denied by promoter Boxing 360 to have the fight blocked. The injunction was filed under the insistence that Lundy was still under contract with the New York-based promoter, having entered an exclusive agreement in December 2010.

A court of law felt otherwise, thanks to the strong case successfully argued by Scott Shaffer, who represented CES and also serves as editor for boxing website Boxingtalk.com. 

It's now up to Lundy to step up and prove the hard-fought battle in court worthwhile.
