Dusty Harrison To Face Matthew Strode in Washington, D.C.

By Francisco Salazar

Unbeaten welterweight Dusty Hernandez-Harrison will face Matthew Strode Saturday night, promoter Gerome Quigley, Jr. told BoxingScene.com in a recent interview.

The 10 round bout will take place at the UDC Physical Activities Center in Washington, D.C.

Hernandez-Harrison (30-0-1, 16 KOs) last fought on September 15, winning a hard-fought 10 round unanimous decision over Thomas Lamanna in Atlantic City, N.J. He suffered the only blemish to his record in his previous fight on May 13, when he fought to a 10 round split decision against Mike Dallas.

The 22-year-old resides in the Southeast section of Washington, D.C. and is very popular amongst boxing fans in the ‘DMV’ (District of Columbia, Maryland, and Virginia) area.

Hernandez-Harrison is promoted by Roc Nation.

Strode (24-4, 9 KOs) was stopped by Ramon Alvarez in his last bout on December 17. The Greensboro, N.C. resident has lost his last two bouts.

While he is the promoter of record Saturday night, Gerome Quigley will also see action on the card.

Quigley (15-0, 14 KOs) will square off against veteran James Wayka in a 10 round junior middleweight bout.

The 33-year-old Quigley fought four times in 2016, winning them all by knockout. Wayka (16-14-1, 8 KOs) is winless in his last eight bouts.
