f9a3ef48-f78d-4ea8-a6a5-71e90f8ff473 Vito Gasparyan and Simeon Hardy were pegged to be the potential “fight of the night” as both fighters possess a dangerous combination of just enough power and the will to exchange.
Hardy entered this fight with an unblemished record and 10 KOs to go with his 13 professional fights. Gasparyan has suffered 3 losses in his career, but he has faced the much better competition – having shared the ring with Jesse Vargas and Jermell Charlo.
The fight wasn’t very graceful and there was a lot of wild aggression, the kind of aggression that is unaccompanied by activity. Gasparyan was clearly the bigger puncher and established that fact in the first two rounds. Hardy seemed awkward and off balance at times, perhaps his tall stature worked against him in this fight.
Heading into the 4th Gasparyan was struggling and his ring rust was playing a factor, although Hardy didn’t do a lot to capitalize off of it. However, by the time the 4th round ended Gasparyan had some momentum that was built over the past two rounds.
The more the fight waged the better Gasparyan got, he would’ve done himself a huge favor if he’d just taken one fight at some point in the last 4 months, but he came on strong down the stretch.
Gasparyan did his best work in the 5th and 6th, and although Hardy did some decent work in the 6th and final round it was Gasparyan that built considerable momentum, landing hard shots on Hardy to close out his performance.
All 3 judges scored the fight for Gasparyan with scores of 58-56, 60-54, and 59-55.
