Tonight at 10 p.m. EDT on ESPN2 and streaming live on ESPN3.com, Philadelphia's "Hammerin'" Hank Lundy looks to potentially secure an October 6 fight with Adrien Broner when he faces Raymundo Beltran in a 10-round lightweight main event from Resorts in Atlantic City.

Lundy (22-1-1, 11 KO) is the favorite tonight, but isn't in easy against the rugged veteran Beltran (25-6, 17 KO), who has given very stiff tests to prospects Sharif Bogere and Luis Ramos Jr in his last two defeats, and had a decent argument for winning both bouts. Lundy also had trouble making weight yesterday, having to weigh in four times before coming in under the 135-pound limit.
If Lundy wins, he's reported to be the front-runner to fight Broner at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, which would be an HBO fight. This is Lundy's chance, in theory, to graduate from the Friday Night Fights ranks into an HBO main event, which is a huge step for any fighter.
In the co-feature, Philly super middleweight prospect Farah Ennis (19-1, 12 KO) looks to win his third straight against Richard Pierson (11-2, 8 KO) of Paterson, New Jersey.
