Armando Resendiz, a Mexican fighter, emerged victorious against former unified junior middleweight champion Jarrett Hurd in a middleweight bout that took place on March 4, 2023, at Toyota Arena in Ontario, California. Resendiz outworked Hurd for nine rounds before the referee stopped the fight due to a cut above Hurd’s eye. This was a significant upset victory for Resendiz, who was not favored to win the fight.
Resendiz pushed the action from the beginning and relied on his relentlessness to break down Hurd and secure the win. Hurd entered the fight as a 5-1 favorite, but he struggled to keep up with Resendiz’s pace and power. Resendiz’s performance was praised as a star-making one.
Resendiz now has a professional boxing record of 14-1, with 10 knockouts, and has solidified his place in the middleweight division. On the other hand, Hurd, who fell to a 24-4 record, has been looking to get back to championship form after his 2021 loss to Luis Arias.
