Jesse Angel Hernandez Cements Himself as a Super Bantamweight Contender with Impressive Unanimous Decision Over Glenn Dezurn

The Fort Worth, Texas, super bantamweight express named Jesse Angel Hernandez continued to pick up momentum last Saturday night, as he took his second consecutive undefeated record away, this time from Baltimore’s Glenn Dezurn.
Fighting on the Danny Jacobs vs. Luis Arias and Jarrell Miller vs. Mariusz Wach undercard at Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum in Uniondale, New York, Hernandez (now 10-1, 7 KOs) used his height and reach advantages to maximum effect while scoring an eight-round unanimous decision over Dezurn (now 9-1-1, 6 KOs).
Despite a game showing from Dezurn, 26-year-old Hernandez was able to keep Dezurn at bay while landing long power shots. When Dezurn was able to make it inside, Hernandez would simply push him back. At the end of eight entertaining rounds, the judges’ scorecards read 79-73, 78-74, and 77-75, all for Hernandez.
“It feels great. I think I looked impressive,” said Hernandez. “I was winning every round. The game plan worked very well. I was trying to stay on the outside, with me being taller than him. My defense was better than his. He did more running than I thought he would. It was a good experience to fight another undefeated guy.”
The win over Dezurn was Hernandez’ “second 0 in a row.” Last August 4, at MGM Grand Detroit, and televised live nationally on ShoBox: The New Generation, Hernandez stopped Russia’s then undefeated Vladimir Tikhonov in five.
“Taking somebody’s 0 gives me the confidence to keep doing it,” continued Hernandez. “These are tough guys I’m fighting now. As I pick up fights and rounds, I feel like my experience is making me better and better. I feel like it’s to my advantage to be in tough every time like this.”
Hernandez’s promoter, Dmitriy Salita of Salita Promotions, says he was very impressed by his newest super bantamweight contender.
“Jesse’s speed, power, aggression and ring generalship were very impressive in this competitive match-up. With this win, Jesse showed that he is one of the best 122-lb contenders in the world. Boxing fans will hear more and more about him in the near future. The plan is to keep Jesse busy while increasing his exposure, to get him in position for a world title shot next year.”
“Things are going great. I feel like I’m with the right team,” said Hernandez. “Salita believed in me like I believe in myself. I will talk to my team and we’re looking forward to fighting again in January or February.”

“This is a significant fight, with the winner becoming the best American prospect in the super bantamweight division. This is the first ‘must win’ fight of both their careers and they’re both in tremendous shape.”
Dezurn’s promoter, Greg Cohen, agrees and says this tremendous fight is icing on a juicy cake for boxing.
“Glenn Dezurn has shown throughout his amateur and professional career that he is one of the hardest working and most dedicated competitors in the sport, who never shies away from a challenge. The combined records of his last three opponents are 30-2-1; that speaks volumes. Glenn is ready to make the leap from prospect to contender, and with a victory over highly respected Jesse Hernandez, he will do just that. What a great addition to an already sensational card!”

Salita Signs Super Bantamweight Powerhouse Jesse Angel Hernandez to a Promotional Contract

Dmitriy Salita of Salita Promotions proudly announces the signing of super bantamweight prospect Jesse Angel Hernandez to an exclusive promotional contract.
A 26-year-old southpaw from Fort Worth, Texas, Hernandez (9-1, 7 KOs) first came to Salita’s attention last August 4, at a Salita Promotions event at the MGM Grand Detroit, and live on ShoBox: The New Generation, where he sored an impressive TKO 5 over Russia’s formerly undefeated Vladimir Tikhonov (16-0). Tikhonov, a Salita fighter, was overwhelmed by the strength, heavy hands and fearsome body attack of Hernandez.
It was a display of offensive firepower that promoters look for in a prospect.
Hernandez compiled a 68-6 record as an amateur before turning pro in 2009. Hampered by inactivity for five years, due to managerial issues and a shortage of local gyms, he has rededicated his career since returning in 2014.
Hernandez comes from a boxing family and is one of 16 brothers and sisters. Nine of the boys were boxers and six turned professional, including Jose “El Loco” Hernandez, who scored a draw against former world champion Mickey Bey, and Rodrigo Hernandez, who fought to the only draw with Leo Santa Cruz.
“It’s like a blessing to sign with Salita,” said Hernandez. “I feel like we are very good fit. A company with great potential to make hardworking fighters into championship level athletes. I plan on making a name for myself and eventually win a world title.”
A true force in the ring, Hernandez says as he progresses to bigger fights, his relentless style will become even more effective.
“I was made for 12 rounds or more. I have an advantage that will help me reach my plan of dominating the 122-lb. division and eventually move up and hopefully do the same at higher divisions. I would like to fight anybody who holds a title once I get my opportunity. I want to fight whoever is the best when I get to that level. I fear no one. If you have ranking points or a title, I hope to see you in my future.”
“Jesse has an exciting, aggressive TV-friendly style,” said Dmitriy Salita. “I am confident that with more fights and exposure he will be on his way to being a big name in the super bantamweight division.”
