Hank Lundy was too good for Angelo Santana in tonight's ShoBox main event, while Amir Imam made a crushing statement in the co-feature.

Philadelphia's Hank Lundy defeated Angelo Santana over 10 rounds tonight on ShoBox: The New Generation, winning on unanimous scores of 98-91 against the Cuban, who has now lost two straight. BLH also had it 98-91 for Lundy.

Lundy (24-3-1, 11 KO) started the fight out in an orthodox stance, but by round three had fully switched over to make it a southpaw vs southpaw matchup, which gave Santana (14-2, 11 KO) all kinds of trouble. Without Lundy leading with his right hand and leaving himself open, Santana had little to work with, and for the second straight fight, looked a bit exposed as a one-dimensional fighter who simply doesn't have much more to his game than the basics.

Hammerin' Hank, on the other hand, could be in the world title mix at 135 sooner than later. He's an exciting fighter, talks a good game, has had some TV exposure, and it's a thin division right now. With this and a runaway win over Olusegun Ajose last July, he's posted two straight solid wins.

In the co-feature, 140-pound prospect Amir Imam (13-0, 12 KO) knocked Jared Robinson (14-1, 6 KO) out of the ring in round four. That said, Robinson got to his feet, climbed the steps, and was back in the ring, beating the count. The referee chose to stop it there for good reasons (Robinson was still unsteady), but you have to take your hat off to Robinson for recovering from what was a worse fall than a knockdown, really, as he landed on his head. Imam, 23, looks like a prospect to watch for sure. (Check out video of the stoppage.)
