Adrien Broner will have a new opponent in his debut on BLK Prime.
Due to a dispute with his promoter, Ivan Redkach won’t be able to fight Broner, and veteran Hank Lundy will replace him.
Broner-Lundy is a 10-round welterweight fight and is the main event on a card that will take place February 25 at Gateway Center in Atlanta, Georgia(BLK Prime PPV).
Broner(34-4-1, 24 KOs), who has captured world titles in four weight classes, is returning to the ring after a two-year absence, and the 33-year-old expects to put on a show.
“I’m glad they found a worthy replacement in Hank Lundy,” Broner said via a press release. “Unfortunately, Redkach had to pull out, but I’m ready for whoever they put in front of me. This is the AB show, and I’m on a mission to bust up everyone in my way. Hank Lundy is in trouble. I’m going to put a beating on him.”
Lundy(31-12-1, 14 KOs) has been in with many top guys, including Terence Crawford, Jose Zepeda, and Viktor Postol, and will definitely come to fight.
According to the 39-year-old Lundy, he has been hoping to fight Broner for a long time.
“Fighting Broner is something I’ve envisioned for a long time, and now this opportunity has presented itself to me,” Lundy said. “Broner has established himself as one of the best fighters in the world, but he hasn’t been active, so I’m going to take full advantage of his inactivity. Everyone knows that I will fight anyone, and the big names run from me. So I’m telling everyone right now, I’m going to beat the sh** out of this can, man.”
Lundy is an easier fight for Broner, but he’s been active, so he has a fighting chance but expect Broner to get the job done.
