Mike Coppinger reports at that Philadelphia lightweight Hank Lundy would love to get a crack at Timothy Bradley should Bradley indeed get his expected spot on the Pacquiao vs Marquez undercard on November 12:

"You put a real guy in front of Timothy Bradley that’s gonna fight, you’ll see some difference, and I’ll be that guy. If Timothy Bradley wanna fight Hank Lundy, let’s do it. He won’t even get that close to me to head-butt me. I would destroy him. I would kill him."

Lundy (21-1-1, 11 KO) is an exciting fighter who doesn't back down from challenges, and he's been dying to get a big fight. Lundy's one of those guys who seems like he either doesn't know or doesn't care that he's probably "limited" and that he has flaws -- he just wants a big shot, and Bradley would be a big shot.

If Top Rank sign Bradley and get him on the card, which they want to do, they don't have a lot of guys on their roster that fit the bill as an opponent for him. It's going to be designed to be a showcase, probably, and Lundy's reckless nature might be a bit of a risk. Bradley would definitely be a major, major favorite, but Lundy fights like he's got nothing to lose.
