Sometimes it’s necessary to let the competition know what’s up–even if you’re a fighter who doesn’t like to do much trash talking.
Such is the case with IBF Junior Middleweight title holder, “Swift” Jarrett Hurd (20-0, 14 KOs) who took to Instagram earlier today to clap back at some of his fellow 154-pound fighters.
Ever since he won the IBF strap with a stoppage victory over Tony Harrison, a number of fighters have called out the Accokeek native.
Everyone from Erickson Lubin, Justin DeLoach, Jermell Charlo and Erislandy Lara have called out Hurd, and although the young and undefeated titlist has a pending September scrap with former champion Austin Trout, he’s putting two of those fighters on notice.
“Y’all know me, I don’t do no talking… I got two fights before the year is up. After that just sign the contract,” said Hurd via an Instagram post earlier today.
Trout is no easy fight, but if Hurd gets through the rest of the year unscathed, it’s going to set up some more awesome PBC clashes at 154 pounds.
Who do you think the best Junior Middleweight in the world is?
