Golden Boy Promotions in association with CES Boxing will present a summer showdown between West Coast vs. East Coast on Saturday, July 11 as Southern California's Mauricio "El Maestro" Herrera (21-5, 7 KOs) battles titlist "Hammerin'" Hank Lundy (25-4-1, 12 KOs) of Philadelphia for the NABF Super Lightweight Championship. The 10-round super lightweight bout from the Los Angeles Memorial Sports Arena in Los Angeles will be televised live on HBO Latino beginning at 11:00 p.m. (live ET/tape-delayed PT). Here's a few words from Hank Lundy about his upcoming match.
"I'm eager to show the world that they haven't seen the best of me yet," said Hank Lundy. "Mauricio Herrera, I like him, because he reminds me of me, but on fight night I am not going to do him any favors. I know he gave Danny Garcia problems but I have full confidence in my abilities. He's going to see what it's like when you have a guy in front of you that can do the same thing and do it even better."
