Accokeek, MD super welterweight "Swift" Jarrett Hurd stopped previously undefeated Jeff Lentz of Lanoka Harbor, NJ in the seventh round tonight at the Prudential Center in Newark, NJ.
Here is how Matt Richardson and John DiSanto of Fightnews.com saw the bout from ringside:
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.
Hurd remains undefeated and raises his record to 16-0, 10 KO's while Lentz falls to 5-1, one KO.
Also on the card, Baltimore, MD welterweight Kevin "The Scarecrow" Womack, Jr. lost a six-round unanimous decision to undefeated Mikkel LesPierre of New York City. Once again, here is the Fightnews.com description:
The New York southpaw dominated the action with a steady body attack and frequent right hooks upstairs. LesPierre’s best punch of the fight was a jarring right hook just before the bell ended round five. Womack came out aggressively in the final round, but LesPierre regained control with his heavier blows. Womack was hurt midway through the round with a hard left by LesPierre, but held on until the final bell. Official scores were 60-54 and 59-55 twice, all for LesPierre.
With the loss, Womack's record evens to 7-7-3, five KO's while LesPierre's record climbs to 10-0-1, four KO's.
