Heather Hardy talks about stoppage win last night
Heather “The Heat” Hardy (16-0 4KOs) picked up her first stoppage win in nearly three years as she stopped late replacement Anna Donatella Hultin (8-3 2KOs) on the undercard of Errol Spence Jr-Chris Algieri in Brooklyn, New York at the Barclays Center.
During an interview with Elie Seckbach, Hardy explained what happened leading up to the stoppage.
“I hit her with a couple of overhand rights just before the third ended and I really thought the ref was [going] to stop it, but she sort of stuck around and I was like ‘alright‘. Then in the fourth I started hitting her really hard to the body and she bent forward and said ‘STOP! STOP! STOP!'”
Though Hardy explained that the doctor said something about Donatella Hultin’s shoulder, Hardy was convinced that the body work and the audible grunt were the cause of the bout ending.
“She didn’t want no more [SIC], come on!”
Hardy, who was happy with the victory was not effected by the fact that her foe said it was a bodily injury and not the bout that caused the bout to end early.
“No [in response to the way the bout was stopped], because I stopped her. She can say whatever she wants….”
