Hurd Inserted in Main Event Bout Friday In Chester, PA!

He was scheduled to be on the card anyway, but undefeated Accokeek, MD junior middleweight "Swift" Jarrett Hurd will now participate in the eight-round main event on Friday, December 5 at Harrah's Casino in Chester, PA.

Hurd will face his most experienced foe to date in Eric "Murder" Mitchell, a native of Philadelphia who now fights out of Vero Beach, FL.  Hurd (13-0, eight KO's) is replacing Harry Joe Yorgey who pulled out of the bout.  Hurd is coming off back-to-back first-round stoppages in his last two bouts.

The 45-year-old Mitchell (23-11-2, 11 KO's) would have been in a rematch against Yorgey.  The first bout went to a six-round draw on July 25 in Wyomissing, PA.  The draw broke a four-bout losing streak for Mitchell that included a six-round unanimous decision loss to Cecil McCalla on January 31 in West Orange, NJ.
