Tonight at 11 pm EST on HBO Latino, Golden Boy Promotions presents a tripleheader of action featuring junior welterweight contender Mauricio Herrera in action against upset-minded Hank Lundy. BLH will be here with live round by round coverage for the fights.
Herrera (21-5, 7 KO) is looking to stake a claim near the top of the 140-pound ranks, where some would argue he already belongs following a controversial loss to Danny Garcia last year in Puerto Rico. He followed that with a win over Johan Perez last July, then another very controversial loss against Jose Benavidez in December. The 35-year-old veteran likely has a short window to claim his first world title (officially, anyway), and cannot afford a loss to Lundy (25-4-1, 12 KO), a solid veteran fighter who has fallen short in most of his tougher matchups.
Lundy, 31, could be primed for the upset here, though. He's a talented fighter who may match up nicely style-wise with Herrera, and we've seen Mauricio struggle to impress judges, too. Lundy last fought in December, losing to Thomas Dulorme.
Lightweights Michael Perez (22-1-2, 10 KO) and Luis Sanchez (17-3-1, 5 KO) will meet in a 10-round bout. Sanchez is a short-notice replacement for Sharif Bogere, who withdrew due to an injury. And 22-year-old featherweight prospect Joseph Diaz Jr (16-0, 10 KO) will look to continue his impressive pro start against Rene Alvarado (22-4, 15 KO), a solid step-up foe.
