Friday Night Fights results: Hank Lundy dominates Olusegun Ajose in main event

Hank Lundy was simply too good for Olusegun Ajose tonight, as he ended his two-fight losing streak with a one-sided decision win in the main event of ESPN Friday Night Fights.

Olusegun Ajose was the betting favorite, and most expected he'd emerge from tonight's ESPN Friday Night Fights main event back in the mix at 140 pounds. Instead, it was Philadelphia's "Hammerin'" Hank Lundy who owned the ring, ripping Ajose with left hands over 10 rounds, en route to a dominant decision victory.

Official scores were 100-90, 98-92, and 98-92 for Lundy. Bad Left Hook had it 99-91 for Lundy, the same as ESPN's Teddy Atlas.

Lundy (23-3-1, 11 KO) had lost his previous two bouts to Raymundo Beltran and Viktor Postol, but he totally outclassed Ajose (31-2, 14 KO), once considered a legitimate contender at 140 pounds. His speed was too much, and his long, laser-like left hands continued to score, hurting Ajose on numerous occasions. In a couple of rounds, Ajose essentially had to survive in the waning moments. Lundy, usually a right-hander, fought southpaw the entire fight, negating any advantage that Ajose might have gained from his normal southpaw stance.

It's a big win for Lundy, who would have remained an attractive TV fighter no matter what happened here, but would definitely have been pushed down to trial horse or stepping stone. As it is, he's a fringe contender at 140 right now, and should have no trouble finding fights.

The 33-year-old Ajose has seemingly encountered reality in his move to the United States. Last year, he was thrashed by Lucas Matthysse, and tonight he was never in the fight against Lundy.
