Hardy, who only turned pro last year, has quickly become one of the major attractions on the New York boxing scene and on this night, fighting for the first time in her home city of Brooklyn, she didn't disappoint. Fighting in front of her legion of adoring, and growing fan base, Hardy picked up the UBF junior featherweight title in impressive fashion.
Hardy came out on fire, dishing out heavy punishment from the outset. Hardy had Gomez in trouble immediately, as she scored vicious shots with both hands. Gomez was able to make it out of the round, but the end seemed near.
