Dusty Harrison is Set To Return on November 1st

Washington, D.C. - All In Entertainment presents live Professional Boxing on Saturday, November 1, 2014 from the historic DAR Constitution Hall, featuring the very best talent from the Washington, D.C. region.
 
The Main Event features the long awaited return home of Washington, D.C.'s own undefeated WBC Youth Welterweight Champion, Dusty Hernandez-Harrison (23-0, 12 KOs), as he takes on veteran Michael Clark of Columbus, OH (44-11-1, 18 KOs). Clark has challenged for World Championships, faced world ranked contenders throughout his career and is believed to be the type of challenge needed for Hernandez-Harrison’s career heading towards superstardom.
 
Eager to return to the ring following an injury to his ankle, Hernandez-Harrison shared that, “This fight is big for me. I’ve been working even harder at camp because I want a strong come back. It will be great to fight in front of my fans here in D.C. They haven’t seen me fight at home in almost a year and a half so my Dad and I are excited for the huge turnout against a really tough opponent like Clark.”
 
Hernandez-Harrison’s father and trainer, Buddy Harrison, said “Dusty’s been going hard in the gym.  We’ve been really demanding of him at training camp and he’s going against some top-notch sparring partners.” In preparation for the match up against Clark, the elder Harrison explained that “He's tough, no question about it; but we’re ready and I know Dusty will be ready to put on a great show for his fans.  We couldn’t be happier to be back in Washington, D.C.”
 
The semi-main event feature highlighted on the card is local prospect, Jarrett Hurd (12-0, 7 KOs), of Accokeek, MD. Hurd hopes to remain undefeated as he comes fresh off a 1st round TKO victory over Joshua Robertson. Hurd will face Terry Cade of Aiken, South Carolina. Also on the card will be Maryland’s own Mykal Fox facing Sean Lockhart, Marquel Johns who will face Jesus Gonzales and Emanuel Johnson who will fight against Patrick Chaffin.  From D.C., heavyweight Dwayne McRae will battle Grover Young and Virginia prospect, Brandon Quarles, is set to take on Dennis Sharpe in his bout. Local rapper, Lightshow, is slated to make a special appearance at the event.
 
"Dusty is certainly excited to be fighting in Washington, D.C. after further developing his skills on a national level during the past 18 months,” said Jeff Fried of All In Entertainment. "We have always been about providing opportunities for our local athletes and this "Hometown Takeover" card is filled with top talent from the DMV, which is at its peak in developing World Champions. The fans will definitely be watching future World Champions on November 1 at Constitution Hall," added Fried.
