It has been over a year since Southeast Washington, D.C. Welterweight prospect, Dusty Hernandez-Harrison, has fought in front of his hometown fans in the Nation’s Capital. His long-awaited return will come on Saturday, September 27, when promoter All In Entertainment presents “Hometown Takeover” at DAR Constitution Hall. Hernandez-Harrison will be headlining the show against Hector Munoz of Albuquerque, NM in a 10-round Welterweight matchup for the WBC Continental Americas Championship.
Hernandez-Harrison (23-0, 12KO’s), the current WBC Youth Welterweight Champion, fought almost exclusively in Washington, D.C. to start his career. Following a stellar performance in his hometown in May 2013, Dusty spent the last 15 months strategically honing his craft on the road against all levels of opposition and in various venues throughout the United States. The 20 year old WBC Youth Welterweight Champion relishes the opportunity to once again display his skills in front of his hometown fans.
“Knowing that I will be fighting in my hometown for another belt has really given me extra motivation in training camp,” Hernandez-Harrison said. “I know Jeff had a detailed plan for me to see as many different looks as possible in and out of the ring and it worked. But it feels great to be fighting at home again,” Dusty added. “I would like to thank the WBC for giving me the opportunity to fight for a Championship in Washington, D.C.”
