BOSTON (Jan. 22, 2010) – Hot lightweight prospect “Hammerin’” Hank Lundy brought a touch of his Philadelphia fighting to Boston last night, defeating former Cuban amateur standout Richard “El Tigre” Abril by a 10-round split decision, in the “Boston Pop” main event at The Roxy.
Lundy (17-0-1, 10 KOs) remained unbeaten, even though he suffered a knockdown in the midway through the fight, that appeared to be more of a slip causing his glove to briefly hit the canvas. The judges scored 98-91 and 96-94 in favor of Lundy, 95-94 for Abril (12-2-1, 6 KOs).
“He didn’t frustrate me but he kept moving around,” Lundy said after the fight. “Once he felt my power he ran. I clearly beat him. He didn’t do noting but hold. That was a slip, not a knockdown. He can’t punch.”
In the co-feature, power-punching Eddie “Thunder” Caminero lived up to his nickname, stopping Chris Traietti in the second round, after flooring him in the first and later hurting him with a right hand before referee Bob Benoit halted the action.
In his first scheduled 6-rounder, popular lightweight Ryan “The Polish Prince” Kielczewski kept his perfect pro record (7-0) intact, despite being floored, took a unanimous decision from Francisco Palacios.
Junior welterweight Simeon “Dynamite” Dunwell improved his record to 11-1 with a 6-round decision versus Josh “Bam Bam” Beeman in an action-packed bout.
Boston super middleweight Maceo Crowder won a unanimous 4-round decision against pro debuting Greg McCoy.
Special guests in attendance included Vinny Paz, John Ruiz and Micky Ward.
