Jarrett Hurd unified titles in the super welterweight division this weekend at the Hard Rock hotel in Las Vegas against Cuban Erislandy Lara in what was hailed as a superb fight largely by fight fans.
Lara straight after the fight insisted he thought he won the fight easily, despite been knocked down on route to the points loss in what was a great fight to watch overall.

Meanwhile Jarret Hurd has physically beaten down slowly but surely Erislandy Lara. Lara has been game but Hurd is just a juggernaut in there. #HurdLara

Jarret Hurd is like the black Antonio Margarito. Lacks technique, lacks defense, lacks speed but he don’t stop coming. 🥊🥊
