24-year-old lightweight, John Delperdang, will step into the ring with his toughest opposition yet, as he takes on 'Hammerin' Hank Lundy on December 30, 2016 from the Boom Center in Cincinnati, Ohio.

Delperdang (10-1, 9 KOs), who fights out of Crossroads Boxing Gym in Ontario, California, will be fighting for the vacant UBF lightweight world title, and a victory over a prominent name such as Lundy will surely get him noticed throughout the division. Lundy (26-6-1, 13 KOs) has exactly triple the bouts than Delperdang and will be an extremely difficult task to overcome. The 32-year-old Lundy hasn't been in the ring since his TKO loss against Terence Crawford back in February of this year. Delperdang was last in the squared circle this past October in a knockout win over Jesus Reyes Ortiz in Mexico. 

Ticket information can be found on the venue website or by calling (513) 409-2663.
