Unified super-welterweight champion fights with torn rotator cuff!

Unified (WBA & IBF) world super-welterweight champion Jarrett Hurd has undergone shoulder surgery!

The champion from Accokeek, Maryland took to social media to inform fans that he had gone INTO his unification bout with Cuba’s Erislandy Lara with the injury!

“Preparing for the Lara fight i had a slightly torn Rotator Cuff in my left shoulder. I was receiving cortisone shots to numb the pain but that was only temporary. Now the issue is taking care of. Thank you to everyone that wished me luck on my procedure today. ???????? Be back soon.”

Since gaining mainstream attention with a tenth round stoppage over Oscar Molina in June 2016, Hurd has gone onto to become one of if not the best fighter at the weight. His performance over Lara showed his skills as he took away the movement of Lara, drawing him into his mind of fight, which produced the twelfth-round knockdown that earned Hurd the WBA strap in a split decision victory. 

Hurd had been chasing both Sheffield’s Kell Brook and WBC champion, Jermell Charlo in recent months. However, given the injury a bout seems unlikely with either this year.

IntuBoxing wishes you a speedy recovery champ!
