Hank Lundy turns 39 in February, but this graybeard still has bite. He’s always in shape and looking to teach a young gun a lesson.

“FIGHTNIGHT LIVE caps the year with some Mistletoe Mayhem and we are proud to feature this Nedal’s Promotions card as we showcase great events in back-to-back weeks,” said Mark Fratto, Principal and Director of Business Development, Linacre Media. “Rising superstar Shinard ‘Showtime’ Bunch takes on former world title challenger ‘Hammerin’ Hank Lundy in an electric main event where both warriors have something to prove here at the crossroads. Siddique Farooqi and Michael Woods – founder of NYFIGHTS.com – will be on the call to heat up the Newtown Athletic Club.”

As part of FIGHTNIGHT LIVE’s blockbuster multi-event deal with FloSports, Friday’s 7 p.m. card will air in its entirety on FloCombat. Click HERE, to get access to FloCombat. 

In Friday night’s main event, super lightweight contender Bunch (19-1-1, 16 KOs), of Trenton, N.J., via Queens, N.Y., will look to continue his rise in a formidable 10-round test against the veteran and former world-title challenger Lundy (31-11-1, 14 KOs) of Philadelphia. 

Popular area battlers Daiyaan Butt (12-2, 5 KOs) and John Leonardo (8-1-1, 4 KOs) are also featured.

“I had great sparring with elite fighters,  I’m more than ready to perform,” Butt told NYFIGHTS.

Foe Leonardo also checked in with NYF. “I’m very excited for this fight, despite my opponents’ record I think he’s a very skilled fighter and he’s been around,” he said. “But I think when one of my body shots hits him up the middle it’ll be certain to slow him down!”

Also, area up-and-comers Devin Gantt (1-0, 1 KO) and Juan Davila (1-0, 1 KO) look to defend unblemished records in separate contests on the eight-bout card.
