Heather Hardy to Fight 8-2 Swede



Heather Hardy

Her national footprint is growing, with a spread in the latest RING, and a few ad campaigns in the can, and a role in an NYC TV boxing magazine…but all that side stuff stems from the fighting life of Heather Hardy.

The fighting pride of Gerritsen Beach and now DUMBO, Brooklyn next gloves up April 16 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn on a show put together by Lou Dibella.

Hardy, who has progressed wickedly quickly under the gaze of trainer Devon Cormac, an ex pro pugilist and kick boxer, will meet 8-2 Swede Anna Hultin on the card topped by a Chris Algieri v. Errol Spence welterweight tangle. She works out of the famed and fabled Gleason’s Gym, in the borough of Brooklyn.

Hardy isn’t looking past the Swede to a forthcoming TV fight against rival Shelly Vincent. She seeks to go to 16-0 on the 16th.

Editor/publisher Michael Woods became addicted to boxing in 1990, when Buster Douglas shocked the world with his demolition of the fearsome Mike Tyson. The Brooklyn-based journalist Woods has covered the sport since then, for ESPN The Magazine,, ESPN New York, RING, and he was editor of from 2007-2015. Woods is also an accomplished blow by blow and color man, having done work for Top Rank, DiBella Entertainment, EPIX, and numerous other organizations.
