Donovan George Calls Out Jesse Hart, Sends Fruit Basket During Victory Party

“Enjoy the fruits of your labor…but I want to get you in the ring” was the message delivered via an Edible Arrangement bouquet to Jesse “Hard Work” Hart’s victory party on Thursday in Philadelphia. The sender? Donovan “The Bomb” George, who is itching to fight the newly crowned WBO NABO, USBA and NABF Junior Super Middleweight Champion.

The card read, in its entirety, “Congrats on your victory. Enjoy the fruits of your labor. When you’re done with this, I want to get you in the ring so I can beat your ass. Have a great day. -Donovan George.”

In an Instagram video posted by user @maleek_jackson, Hart munched on a piece of pineapple, and issued his response. “Donovan George, I’m enjoying this fruit just like I enjoyed whooping that ass….we all enjoying this fruit. We aren’t worried about nothing. When you’re ready, you know where to find me.”

Statement from Bobby Hitz/Hitz Boxing on rumors of Donovan George pulling of his fight with Jean Pascal

“We highly dispute any reports that Donovan George pulled out of this fight. It’s true that he juts had twins, but as of late this afternoon, on our end, we are still a go. We were still negotiating the final details with Interbox. Since Bute pulled out of his fight, there’s been a lot of confusion as to how to elevate this fight to the main event. A lot of people were muddying the waters on how to make this thing happen, but at the end of the day Pierre Duc, his team and I put this fight back together.

We have flight arrangements, and we are scheduled to arrive in Montreal on the 30th of November, and we intend on fulfilling that. These reports have been manufactured to try to add confusion to his training camp, but I can guarantee you this: Pascal better get ready, because Donovan’s coming to knock him out.”
