Adrien Broner will now go head-to-head with Hank Lundy on the 25th of February for his return fight with Ivan Redkach pulling out of the bout. It has now been two years since Adrien Broner stepped into the ring and previously only once in four years with a 2021 win against Jovaine Santiago, Broner before that was 0-2-1 in three fights with many boxing pundits believing he has never fully recovered from his defeat to the tough Marcos Maidana which was over nine years ago now.
Adrien Broner has picked his opponent here as Lundy, 39 years of age has lost three straight fights including Robbie Davies Jr, Alex Martin, and Jose Zepeda. One of his most notable fights came against Terence Crawford where he fought for the title in 2016 at 140 lb, he lost the fight via fifth-round TKO. Hank Lundy has been labelled as a tough fighter who is capable in the ring but has never fully achieved top levels and it is unlikely with his age and current run that he will reach the heights.
There are many question marks around Adrien Broner’s career since fighting Marcos Maidana, his record has been 7-3-1 but you can make the point that he has lost too much better fighters which is never to be shamed in this world. It is has been a long time since Broner was referred to as a ‘top fighter’ in a division and being 33 years old, it looks like he is approaching his final chances, there have also been questions marks whether Broner will be able to make 147 lbs as it is not the weight division where he has produced his best performances in the ring.
Both fighters are looking forward to the bout with Adrien Broner saying “I’m glad they have found a worthy replacement in Hank Lundy” and Lundy stating “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.”
