CHESTER --- Jesse Hart, the son of former middleweight contender Eugene "Cyclone" Hart needed all of 28 seconds Friday to knock out Lekan Beyfield of Yonkers, N.Y., in a highly anticipated fight at Harrah's.

Hart threw only two punches, the second a blasting right uppercut that sent Beyfield (2-2-1) down. As Bayfield tried to rise, he staggered back again to the canvas. Hart, a super middleweight with Top Rank connections, improved to 3-0 as a professional --- with three first-round knockouts.

In the main event, Naim Nelson of Philadelphia (8-0) won a 10-round unanimous decision over Victor Vasquez (15-7-1) of Philadelphia, good for the Pennsylvania State lightweight championship.

In the semi-windup Chester light welterweight Julio DeJesus (6-3-2) won a majority decision over Gabriel Diaz (1-2-1) of Philadelphia.

Earlier, Edson Soto of Hackensack, N.J. stopped Philly junior lightweight Joshua Rivera at 2:52 of the first. Each was making his pro debut.

Also, Philadelphia heavyweight Mark Rideout improved to 3-0 with a majority decision over Lonnie Kornegay (1-7-1) of Baltimore. In a bantamweight match, Philly's Alex Barbosa went to 4-0 with a majority decision over Arthur Parker (1-8) of Lancaster.

Todd Unthank-May (5-0) of Philadelphia took a unanimous decision over Philly light heavyweight Teneal Goyco (4-4-1).
