Hank Lundy Seriously Questioning the Pre-Fight Tactics of Robbie Davies


When super lightweight boxer “Hammerin” Hank Lundy (31-9-1, 14 KO’s) next slides through the ropes, it will be to face UK fighter Robbie Davies (21-3, 14 KO’s). The two are set to collide in the Echo Arena located in Liverpool on December 11.

Naturally, Hammerin Hank fancies himself to be the strong favorite to win the bout. Yet, this self-confidence has been significantly amplified by what Lundy views as a very critical mistake.

“I just noticed he got a new trainer. The thing about it is, you are in the biggest fight of your life and you got a new trainer? And its new tactics that you are trying to do facing Hank Lundy? Not a good idea! But we are going to showcase that and our god given ability and be victorious doing what I do.”

According to Lundy, there are any number of ways that the win might fall in his hands. Yet, one way or another, Hammering Hank is cocksure that he’ll be collecting Davies’ scalp come Saturday night.

“My team dissected him and we see what he likes to do what he doesn’t like to do and we are going to go in there and do what we like to do! We are going to dictate the pace and make him fight our tone…I’ll put it like this: in boxing, if the knockout comes, it comes.

“But I got all the tools in the bag to pull them out and handle the job. So, if it takes ten rounds of boxing, Hank Lundy can do ten rounds of boxing and I can really do a hurt job on this guy!”

FIRST THINGS FIRST

Provided that he does prevail over Davies, Lundy will put his best energy into securing another shot at a world title. For him, at this moment, that would mean that he is targeting undisputed super lightweight champion Josh Taylor. In his last bout, Lundy lost to Jose Zepeda which of course was a detrimental setback.

Hammerin Hank is not losing sleep over the matter though. In his mind, so long as he remains focused, he should be able to get the shot that he is looking for.

“I fought Zepeda and I actually put Zepeda down. I believe that I beat him and they robbed me, took the fight from me. Now Zepeda came back and fought somebody else. It was up in the air, but I would like to fight Josh Taylor because I’m really the number one contender in the world and the world knows that!

“But, its no crying, no spilled milk, we here today. We are going to take care of business of Robbie and then we going to move forward. Hopefully, if Josh Taylor don’t move up, then we might get him!”

Time will tell if Lundy gets the monster showdown that he is hunting for with Taylor. Yet, nothing will come to fruition if he doesn’t handle himself on Saturday. So, first let’s see how Lundy versus Davies unfolds.
