See also

In just a few second of the first round, Jesse Hart knocked out his opponent Tyrell Hendrix in impressive fashion to improve his record to 11-0 with 10 of those victories coming by way of knockouts.

Hart, a Philadelphia native, was able to quickly jump on Hendrix from the get go and in the process landed a heavy right hook the snapped the head of Hendrix back and got referee Steve Smoger concerned right away. Just a few second later, Hart landed a few more flush shots and Hendrix's hand dropped, leaving him defenseless right at the moment that referee Smoger jumped in to stop the fight and save the fighter from receiving further damage.

Before the first bell rang, Hendrix seemed very confident, even taunting Hart as they received instructions from the referee. His confidence only lasted a few second once the actual fight started, while for Hart the knockout victory only boost's his own.

Promoter Bob Arum seemed very happy and high on the young 24-year old Hart, jumping into the ring to celebrate the impressive win by his fighter. This could only mean that Arum has good plans for Hart's future as he tries to continue showcasing him on televised fights in the near future.

For the 30-year old Los Angeles native Hendrix, this becomes the second fight he looses in his last three, and although his record now stands at 10-2, one has to o wonder what the future hold for him given that he is already 30-years old and has not made much progress in his career.

Hart vs Hendrix was part of the undercard bouts for the Guillermo Rigondeaux vs Joseph Agebko main event in Boardwalk Hall, Atlantic City, promoted by Top Rank Promotions and broadcasted live on HBO.
