Popular junior middleweight slugger Glen Tapia and super middleweight prospect Jesse Hart scored fourth-round knockouts on Saturday at Bally’s in Atlantic City.

Tapia (22-1, 14 knockouts), 24, stopped Donatas Bondorovas (18-6-1, 6 KOs) in his return to the site of his previous fight in June, when he scored an 82-second knockout over Keenan Collins. Prior to Collins, Tapia suffered a sixth-round stoppage to James Kirkland in December.

The 25-year-old son of former middleweight contender Eugene “Cyclone” Hart, Jesse Hart (15-0, 12 KOs) finished off Puerto Rico’s Robert Acevedo (8-3, 5 KOs), following up June’s sixth round stoppage of Shujaa El Amin.

Junior middleweight Mikael Zewski (25-0, 20 KOs), 25, recorded his fifth straight knockout, doing so in the second round against Robert Ventura (13-10, 13 KOs).



Also coming up with a fourth-round stoppage was junior lightweight Toka Kahn Clary (13-0, 9 KOs), 22, doing so against Camilo Perez (9-3, 4 KOs).

Yet another fourth round knockout was registered by junior welterweight Julian Rodriguez (5-0, 4 KOs) over Christian Steele (4-11-2, 1 KOs), a 19-year-old who stopped an opponent for the fourth consecutive time.

In other bouts, 140-pounder Mike Reed (11-0, 6 KOs) unanimously decisioned Juan Montiel (7-7-3, 2 KOs), and heavyweight George Arias (1-0, 1 KO) scored a second-round knockout over Edwin Ranquillo (2-3, 1KO).
