US junior welterweight contender (63.5 kg) and Fight of the Year 2020 winner Jose Zepeda (33-2-0, 26 KO), who, as already reported, will return to the ring on May 22 in Las Vegas , changed the opponent.

Initially, Zepeda was supposed to box against Mexican Pedro Campa (32-1-1, 21 KO), but he was replaced by American veteran Henry “Hank” Lundy (31-8-1, 14 KO).

The 37-year-old Landy, best known for his duel with one of the current leaders of the pound-for-pound rating, Terence Crawford, after losing to him in February 2016, had seven fights, two of which he lost. 31-year-old Zepeda knocked out the Belarusian ex-champion Ivan Baranchik in October (20-2-0, 13 KO).

Recall that the show on May 22 will lead the fight for the absolute championship in the same weight between the American Jose Ramirez and the British Josh Taylor.
