When Hank Lundy fights, often there is chaos inside the ring. He has lit up many televised fight cards with his flashy style and motorized mouth. He can punch, is fast on his feet, quick with his hands, always moving, and not afraid to mix it up. Most of the time when Lundy fights, it is must see TV.

Lundy returns to ESPN2 for the sixth time in his career on Friday night (March 30) when he defends his NABF lightweight title against knockout artist Dannie Williams. It should be another can't miss fight. The two have exchanged barbs in the press, and both sound like they can't wait to get at the other.

Williams, of St. Louis, MO, has a good-looking record of 21-1 with 17 KOs, and a reputation as a big puncher. He's stopped three straight foes and has won nine in a row since his only career setback, a 10-round decision loss to Eloy Perez in 2009. Even in that fight, he managed to drop Perez twice before taking the loss. So Williams may bring some fight on Friday. But has he ever faced  a force like Hammerin' Hank?

Lundy's record is almost identical  at 21-1-1 with 11 KOs. His lone draw was questionable, and his only loss was almost unforgivable. But Lundy has rebounded from that loss with three straight wins, including a thrilling knockout of David Diaz in his last bout. recently caught up with Hammerin' Hank Lundy at the Marian Anderson Rec Center where he was preparing for his fight with Dannie Williams, and shot this video.
