Hank Lundy out, Mike Dallas in vs. Lucas Matthysse

Fightnews.com initially broke the news on December 20th that the proposed Showtime Championship Boxing televised fight between WBC interim super lightweight champion Lucas Matthysse (32-2, 30 KOs) and lightweight contender Henry Lundy (22-2-1, 20 KOs) was in jeaopardy. Lundy released his own statement that same day stating that the fight was on, but the fight is now officially off with contender Mike Dallas (19-2-1, 8 KOs) replacing Lundy. Ivan Cohen who is the legal manager of Lundy was against not only this fight between Lundy and Matthysse happening but also Lundy’s last fight which he lost to Raymundo Beltran which lundy took without Cohen’s consent of signing off on the contract. Cohen said the only reason the Lundy-Beltran fight was not stopped was because the court judge ruled that the paperwork of promoter Boxing360 was in order but the filing of the paperwork the week of the fight was too short of notice to stop the fight. Cohen also went on to say that the proper paperwork had since been filed. Per Cohen, his legal contract with Lundy states that no promotional or fight contracts can be signed by Lundy without him being present and without Cohen signing the contract as well. Per the Pennsylvania Athletic Comission website Cohen is the legal manager of record for Lundy.
