Brooklyn,NY – Fighting before a strong contingent of hometown fans, Brooklyn fan favorite Heather Hardy and the Bronx’s Nydia Feliciano went to war in their eight-round female junior featherweight feature bout. Feliciano was easily the toughest opponent of Hardy’s young career, having already fought for a world title in 2012. Round after round, Hardy and Feliciano furiously brawled, bringing the crowd to a standing ovation on a number of occasions. Hardy was the aggressor and pressed the action for the majority of the bout, and in the end, she was awarded the well-deserved unanimous decision, winning by scores of 79-73, and 78-74 twice. It was the most impressive victory to date for Hardy, who improved to a perfect 9-0, 2KO’s.
