Deric "Scooter" Davis 3 Years, 3 Championships

Deric Davis was just 6 years old when he was introduced to boxing by Buddy Harrison of the Old School Boxing Gym. His grandmother Mary Davis gave him the nickname "Scooter" before he was even born. That nickname fits him well. "Scooter" is now 10 years old and is a outstanding football player as well as a very skilled amateur boxer. 


"Scooter"s parents, Deric and Keisha Davis makes sure that he puts school before sports. He is a 6 grader with a GPA of 3.50 at James Ryder Randall Elementary School in Clinton, MD. Next year he will be attending Stephen Decadur Middle School also located in Clinton, MD.  "Scooter" is one of those kids that puts a great effort into everything he does, from the football field to the boxing ring. He spent two years in the gym training before he was even old enough to compete in competitive amateur boxing. The USA Boxing rules state you have to be 8 years old to compete. At 6 years of age "Scooter" was trained by Doug Avery. When he was ready for competition at the age of 8 he was being trained by his current trainer Flip Johnson, 1978 Golden Gloves National Champion. Once "Scooter" started to compete in 2011 he won the Golden Gloves Championship. From then on it never stopped. 2012 he won his second Golden Gloves Championship, and in 2013 he was a semi finalist in the Golden Gloves. When asked if he was upset for not winning the third championship his response was " No I wasn't upset. I just learned from my mistakes so I can get better."  "Scooter" went back into the gym and trained harder. It all paid off because he is now the 2013 Jr. Olympics Champion.

Dusty Hernandez-Harrison's 15th Fight and 19th Birthday Approaching Soon

Dusty Hernandez-Harrison shows off the Jordan Brand athletic shirt he trained in at the open workout on May 13, 2013. The workout was held at the LA Boxing Gym in Georgetown, NW Washington, DC. Jordan Brand is a sponsor for the All-In Entertainment professional boxing card called Champion Class. The Champion Class card will take place Saturday May 18, 2013 at the University of the District of Columbia Sports Complex. 

Dusty Hernandez-Harrison had a very impressive amateur career of over 195 wins. That was enough to convince the District of Columbia Athletic Commission to give Harrison his professional boxers licence at the age of 17. Harrison is 18 but will be celebrating his 19th birthday on May 21, 2013. The undefeated record of (14-0, 8KO's) is very impressive for a young fighter that started at 17 years old.

Dusty has been in the ring for so long that he is never nervous. Dusty says "I guess I'm pretty calm until I walk into the ring. My mom tells me I always look different when I'm coming to the ring, but when she see's me in the dressing room I'm laughing and playing games."

People might be wondering when will Dusty be ready to fight major opponents for a world title. Buddy Harrison (dad / trainer) " He's only 18. What's the rush? Maybe in another year or two or even if the right opportunity presents itself then maybe. You never know. He's only 18."

"SLICK" Nick Kisner Puts On A Four Round Shutout

"SLICK" Nick Kisner of Baltimore, MD used the entire ring to outbox Willie "Blackout" Chisolm of Clearwater, FL. Kisner only stopped moving for a few seconds to land shots on Chisolm. Lots of movement must have been the game plan for Kisner because it seemed to frustrate Chisolm, who wanted to go toe-to-toe. Kisner gets the unanimous decision win. All three judges scored the bout 40-36. Kisner moves to 12-0-1, 5 KO's and Chosolm falls to 7-15, 4 KO's.
