Down But Not Out

Dusty Hernandez Harrison got his 8th victory this past weekend over Marqus Jackson of Atlanta Georgia August 25, 2012. Dusty is a fighter that keeps the opponent at a good distance to avoid getting hit. The last fight Harrison stayed with his normal game plan by being the aggressive fighter in the first five rounds. He slacked off and let Jackson get close enough to land a solid right hand to the head. The hard punch stunned Harrison and caused him to grab and hold Jackson until he could get himself together. Even with the knock down it wasn't enough to give Jackson the fight. Harrison out scored Jackson 59-55, 58-55 and 58-55.
