Philadelphia’s “Hammerin'” Hank Lundy (29-6-1, 14 KOs) returns to the ring tonight in Russia to face undefeated WBC Silver Lightweight World Champion Zaur Abdullaev (9-0, 6 KOs) in a 12-round bout as part of a big fight card at the Traktor Sport Palace in Chelyabinsk, about 1,000 miles east of Moscow. “This fight for me is very big, and when I win it, it’ll put me back on top in the race for the big, green belt,” Lundy said. “The WBC Silver belt will change me and my family’s lives and I’m more than ready. I will not let this slip through my hands.”
The event is promoted by RCC Boxing Promotions and also features a ten-round cruiserweight showdown between WBA world champion in recess Denis Lebedev (30-2, 22 KOs) and former world-title challenger Hizni Altunkaya (30-2, 17 KOs).
