Photos: Jesse Hart, Joe Smith - Ready For War in Atlantic City

Jesse Hart and Joe Smith Jr. faced off before their highly anticipated 10-round light heavyweight showdown Saturday from Hard Rock Live at Etess Arena in Atlantic City (ESPN, 10 p.m. ET). Hart is attempting to gain a measure of revenge, as Smith knocked out his mentor and close friend Bernard Hopkins back in December 2016. (photos by Mikey Williams)
