SALEM, N.H. – After back-to-back losses, Hank Lundy may have been a little desperate. On Friday night, he made sure he wasn’t going to pick up another loss, capturing a 10-round unanimous decision over Ajose Olusegun at Rockingham Park.

Leo Gersel and Mike Nolin scored the fight 98-92 and Frank Wells scored it 100-90. Lundy improved to 23-3-1 with 11 knockouts. Olusegun dropped to 31-2 (14).
“We worked hard,” Lundy said. “It was 110 degrees in the gym. We were willing to walk through hell.”
In his last two fights, Lundy lost a unanimous decision to Viktor Postol on March 21 and a majority decision to Raymundo Beltran on July 27, 2012.
“I won both of those fights,” Lundy said. “I had [Postol] tired. If the fight were over here [instead of in the Ukraine], I would have won the decision.” Before defeating Rynell Griffin on April 20, Olusegun was stopped in 10 rounds by Lucas Matthysse on September 8, 2012.
Lundy usually fights in an orthodox stance but on Friday night, he elected to fight as a southpaw against Olusegun, also a southpaw. “I could do it all,” Lundy said. “There were some things I needed to work on.”
At the end of the fifth round, Lundy landed a series of overhand lefts that drove Olusegun back on his heels. By the sixth round, Olusegun’s right eye was almost closed. Lundy capitalized on the swelling, tagging him with more left hands in the seventh, driving Olusegun into the ropes. By the eighth, there was swelling around both of Olusegun’s eyes.
Lundy hopes to fight the winner of September’s World Boxing Council title fight between titlist Danny Garcia and Matthysse. “I want that WBC title,” he said.
In a meeting of undefeated junior lightweights, Ryan Kielczewski of Quincy, Mass. knocked out Miguel Soto of Arecibo, Puerto Rico in the fifth round of a scheduled eight. Kielczewski, who was celebrating his 24th birthday, dropped Soto with a left hook, sending him to the canvas face-first. Referee David Greenwood reached the count of 10 at 2:59.
Kielczewski, 17-0 (4), had the stronger punches throughout the fight. Early in the second round, Soto drove him to the ropes with a right hand but Kielczewski drove him back to the middle of the ring with a straight right. By the fifth, Kielczewski’s left hooks and uppercuts caused a knot to form over Soto’s right eye.
Soto, who was fighting outside of Puerto Rico for the first time, dropped to 11-1 (11).
Heavyweight Charles Martin of St. Louis, the 2012 national PAL champion, remained undefeated with a fourth-round stoppage of Aaron Kinch of Newark, N.J. in a scheduled six. With about 15 seconds left in the fourth, Martin landed a right hook, driving Kinch back into the ropes. He continued his attack until referee Mike Ryan stopped it at 2:55.
Martin, 9-0-1 (8), also dropped Kinch with a right hook near the end of the third round. Kinch dropped to 5-2-1 (1).
Debuting junior middleweight Gerald Schifone of Brockton, Mass. won a four-round unanimous decision against Noel Garcia of Springfield, Mass. Judges Leo Gersel, Mike Nolin and Frank Wells all scored the bout 40-36. Garcia dropped to 2-19-2 (1).
Middleweight Russell Lamour of Portland, Maine stopped debuting Aguilano Brandao of Worcester, Mass. in the first round of a scheduled four. Lamour dropped Brandao three times before referee Mike Ryan stopped the fight at 1:46. Lamour improved to 4-0 (2).
Heavyweight Alexis Santos of Lawrence, Mass. stopped Marlon Hayes of Newark, N.J. in the fourth round of a scheduled six. Santos dropped Hayes in the fourth and Greenwood stopped the fight at 1:14. Santos is now 10-0 (9); Hayes is 23-12 (11).
Junior middleweight Chris Gilbert of Windsor, Vt. picked up a victory over Luis Viramontes of Brockton, Mass. when Viramontes did not answer the bell for the third round of a scheduled six. Viramontes had a cut on the scalp above his left ear that opened in the second round. Gilbert is now 9-0 (7); Viramontes is 3-3-1 (1). The fight was a rematch of a fight on March 23, when Gilbert earned a fifth-round stoppage.

Heavyweight Daniel Martz of Clarksburg, W.Va. won a six-round majority decision over Jonathan Hamm of Atlanta. Nolin scored the bout 59-55; Gersel scored it 58-56 and Wells scored it 57-57. Martz is now 9-1-1 (6); Hamm is 7-2 (5).
