With the news that Juan Lazcano has broken a finger and is unavailable to fight Ricky Hatton on May 13 on HBO in the USA, the “Black Panther” Lovemore Ndou has his hand up and is ready to take the fight. “I think there is a greater power working to make this fight,” said Ndou. “Ricky Hatton vs. Lovemore Ndou must happen. HBO and the fans will not be disappointed when this fight goes down. Ricky and I are the two fittest fighters in the super lightweight division. We are punching non-stop round after round. This will be a guaranteed contender for ‘fight of the year’ when I give Ricky a whipping.”
The Team Fenech boxer who is a promotional free agent, is trained by three-time world champion & International Boxing Hall of Famer Jeff Fenech, with a record of 41 wins, 8 losses, 1 draw and 27 wins by knockout. The South African born Sydney, Australia resident Ndou is currently rated WBC No.3, IBF No.5 and No.9 by Ring magazine at super lightweight.
“I gave Miguel Cotto and Sharmba Mitchell hell in fights at short notice,” said Ndou. “With time to prepare, I will defeat Ricky Hatton on May 13. Anyone who has seen me fight knows it will be a war. Send me the fight contract for Hatton and I will sign on the dotted line.”
34 year-old Ndou says he wouldn’t want to be any boxer taking the fight with Hatton on May 13 ahead of him.
“Mysterious things happen in boxing,” he explained. “Lazcano has got a broken finger. The next guy may get a broken leg. Strange forces are at work here. Ricky Hatton vs. Lovemore Ndou must be made!”
