"Swift" Jarrett Hurd Continues To Remain Undefeated!

On Friday night Jarrett Hurd Scored a seventh round TKO over Jeff Lentz of Lanoka Harbor, NJ at the Prudential Center in Newark, NJ. 

Hurd improves his record to 16-0, (10 KO's) while Lentz falls to 5-1, (1KO).

This is how saw the bout from ringside:

In a scheduled eight-round junior middleweight fight Jarret Hurd (16-0, 9 KO’s) slammed Jeff Lentz all over the ring before referee Harvey Dock called a halt in the penultimate frame. Hurd repeatedly stunned Lentz with wide punches from the outside. But instead of stepping back to look for the appropriate openings, he got excited and swung wildly. If he fought a little more patiently he may have been able to secure the knockout victory much earlier in the contest. Still, the dominance exhibited by Hurd was obvious and by the seventh he was in full control. After connecting with a combination that snapped Lentz’s head back and sent him into the ropes Dock appropriately stepped in to call an end to the fight with Lentz still standing. There was only one second left in the round. Lentz, who came into the fight unbeaten, is now 5-1 with one win by knockout.
