Lewis Ritson v Hank Lundy Boxing Betting Tips & Predictions
Geordie Lewis Ritson will be fighting in front of his home supporters at the Utilita Arena in Newcastle as he attempts to make amends for suffering only his second professional defeat last time out.
The 28-year-old was stopped for the first time in his professional career in June when Argentina fighter Jeremias Nicolas Ponce halted him in the 10th round in their IBF super lightweight world title eliminator.
It was difficult to watch Ritson lose last time out. Not just because he lost, but what happened before it ended. Ponce was unloading on Ritson hard, and the Newcastle fighter’s corner opted to throw the towel in after a sickening body shot. The referee decided to ignore the towel and allowed the fight to continue. Ritson was then dropped twice before the fight was actually stopped.
That 10th round stoppage will still be eating at Ritson. He knows he cannot afford to slip to another defeat, or he can kiss his world title hopes goodbye.
This will be an eight-round bout, and Ritson is capable of ensuring it doesn’t last that long. He has won 12 of his 21 victories by way of knockout or TKO, so we know he can pack a punch.
American Lundy will have a very vocal crowd on his back for the whole fight. He comes into this bout with 31 wins, nine defeats and one draw. Fourteen of his 31 victories have come by way of stoppage, so again we know he can definitely swing.
Ritson has less professional experience than Lundy, but I don’t think that will matter in this fight. Ritson will be cheered on by thousands of locals, and I expect him to be back in the shower by the end of the fourth round.
He has a point to prove. He wasn’t at his best against Ponce. A devastating performance and knockout will propel him back into the spotlight. I can see him dominating from the opening bell and will drop the American a couple of times before it is eventually stopped.
