PHILADELPHIA, PA (MARCH 18, 2016)– Jesse “Hard Work” Hart lived up to his nickname and battled for 10 rounds in order to defeat upset minded Dashon Johnson who came close to giving Hart his first loss.  In front of a sold-out 2300 Arena in Philadelphia, undefeated super middleweight contender Jesse Hart dominated his apparently overmatched opponent for the first half of the bout.

Every round played itself out the same way, Hart would circle around Johnson landing left hooks and straight rights.  But as the fight progressed, Dashon Johnson pressed the action and was able to trap Hart in the ropes landing some heavy right hands.  Johnson manage to hurt the Philly fighter in the later rounds, especially in the 10th and final round when Hart had to dig deep to come back from a knockdown and finish the fight standing.  In the end the judges scored the fight for the local fighter who celebrated in front of his crowd.  With the victory Hart moves his record to 20-0 with 16 KOs and picks up the NABO & USBA Super Middleweight titles.
