Hank Lundy tried to get back into the ring just six weeks after his last fight and drop a weight class in the process, and it hasn't worked out, as the 31-year-old Philly fighter was well overweight for tomorrow night's scheduled lightweight bout against Petr Petrov. The fight has now been canceled, though the ESPN Friday Night Fights show will otherwise go on as planned.

Lundy (25-4-1, 12 KO) lost to Thomas Dulorme in a 140-pound bout on December 6, and came in at 139 pounds for tomorrow's bout, four pounds over the limit.

Main event fighters Willie Monroe Jr and Bryan Vera are good to go, as they both weighed in at the middleweight limit of 160 pounds. With Petrov-Lundy off, there are slim pickings for the rest of the televised card. Welterweight prospect Taras Shelestyuk (9-0, 6 KO) is in action, as is middleweight Brandon Adams (14-1, 9 KO), but neither are in something that can be considered even a fake competitive matchup.
