It looks like 2014 could be another incredibly active year for Dusty Hernandez-Harrison, the welterweight prospect whose 20 pro wins (11 by knockouts) include eight appearances in 2013 and eight appearances in 2012.
Harrison just fought on the Jan. 31 televised undercard of ESPN2’s “Friday Night Fights,” scoring a unanimous decision over Tim Witherspoon Jr. And now he is set to be back on the air on the undercard of the “Friday Night Fights” episode airing March 7 in Pala, Calif., according to posts on Harrison’s Facebook page.
An opponent has been selected but has not yet been announced, according to a spokesman for Harrison.
The March 7 card, promoted by Gary Shaw Productions, will have a main event of lightweight Rustam Nugaev vs. Marvin Quintero. The card will also include a fight between junior featherweights Roman Morales and Khabir Suleymanov, according to an advertisement.
