In August of last year, Heather Hardy faced longtime rival Shelly Vincent in a brutal 10-round contest for the WBC international women’s title on the first televised women’s fight to air on NBCSN. After 10 hard, aggressive rounds the majority decision was awarded to Hardy, who then improved her record to 18-0.
