Photos | Jesse Hart vs. Mike Gavronski Fight Night

On Saturday, August 18, 2018, Jesse “Hollywood” Hart returned to action a short ride away from his native Philadelphia.

Hart’s sledgehammer right hand spelled an early night for Mike Gavronski, as Hart notched a third-round stoppage in defense of his NABF super middleweight title.

Hart knocked Gavronski down twice in the third round, with the official time of the stoppage coming at 52 seconds.

The WBO No. 1 contender, Hart (25-1, 21 KOs) was not shy about calling out Gilberto “Zurdo” Ramirez for a rematch. Ramirez won a closely contested unanimous decision against Hart in September 2017.

“When I looked at his eyes after the first knockdown, he got real scared,” Hart said. “He started holding, grabbing. With a guy like that, he got real scared. He was fighting for survival. There’s a difference between fighting to win and fighting for survival.

“{Ramirez is} who I want. Give me a chance to redeem myself. He’s talking about going up to 175. Why? I’m right here! Come on, man. Stop with the excuses. I’m right here in front of you.”
