Dusty Harrison Possible For Cotto vs. Canelo Undercard

By Francisco Salazar

Unbeaten welterweight Dusty Hernandez-Harrison will fight Carlos Winston Velasquez tonight at the Mana Production Studio in Miami, Florida.

Hernandez-Harrison weighed in at 147.2 pounds at Friday's weigh-in, while Velasquez tipped the scale at 145.6.

This will be an eight-round tune-up for Hernandez-Harrison (26-0, 13 KOs). The 21-year-old from Washington, D.C. is signed to Roc Nation.

Hernandez-Harrison made his debut on the Roc Nation banner on January 9th, winning a 10 round unanimous decision over Tommy Rainone at Madison Square Garden in New York City. He won a one-sided eight round decision over Chris Gray in Mashantucket, Conn. in his last bout on April 17th.

There is a possibility Hernandez-Harrison could fight on the undercard of the Miguel Cotto-Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez fight on Nov. 21 in Las Vegas, Nev.

Velasquez (23-20-1, 13 KOs) has won his last two bouts after losing six of his previous seven bouts.

In the main event of the Arena-Box Promotions card, former light heavyweight world title holder Glen Johnson (54-20-2, 37 KOs) faces unbeaten Avni Yildirim (5-0, 4 KOs) in a 10 round bout.

Fringe junior featherweight contenders Hanzel Martinez (22-2, 17 KOs) and Hairon Socarras (14-0-1, 10 KOs) square off in a 10 round bout.

Unbeaten middleweight Luis Arias (12-0, 5 KOs) will fight Yoryi Estrella (11-10-2, 8 KOs) in a six round bout.
