The camp of undefeated Accokeek, MD junior middleweight "Swift" Jarrett Hurd is saying that Hurd will not be on tonight's card at the Washington Convention Center.
Hurd was scheduled to face Damon Antoine of Akron, Ohio in a six-round encounter this evening. Hurd's camp posted this statement:
"GFS Entertainment has decided to pull Swift Jarrett Hurd bout off tonight's show at the DC Convention Center for reasons unknown. A bout was made last night with agreements from both camps and DC commissioner, weight was made and agreement was settled. Unfortunately, I don't think GFS realize that as many people that were planning on attending to see Swift Hurd fight, it would have paid for both purses and than some. Sorry for the confusion and to those that have already purchased tickets but we were professionals and held our side of the business!"
The pro-am event begins at 5 PM with the amateur portion followed by the pros.
