Washington, D.C. (September 17, 2014) – All In Entertainment, Promoter for undefeated welterweight prospect, Dusty Hernandez-Harrison, announced that the September 27 Hometown Takeover Championship Boxing Event scheduled to take place at DAR Constitution Hall in Washington, D.C. will be postponed following an ankle injury sustained by Hernandez-Harrison.
Jeff Fried of All In Entertainment expressed that the “top priority is always Dusty's health and well-being. We will know more this week after we receive further medical guidance and see how Dusty is feeling after his first couple of days of training, including sparring."
Hernandez-Harrison’s main event bout with Hector Munoz was to be for the WBC Continental Americas Championship. Other fighters on the card represented the best of the Washington, D.C. region, including undefeated welterweight Larry Recio, Baltimore's cruiserweight contender, Venroy July, rising heavyweight, Dwayne McRae and lightweight undefeated sensation, Mykal Fox, among many other exciting boxers from the DMV.
“I am really excited about fighting in front of my hometown fans in D.C. The ankle is healing well and I look forward to getting back in the ring." said Hernandez-Harrison.
“It is not so much the ankle injury as it is getting the work in before a championship fight against a guy like Munoz that will keep coming at Dusty for every second of every round," said Hernandez-Harrison’s trainer and father, Buddy Harrison.
“Nothing will be done to compromise Dusty's health. Once we receive medical clearance and Buddy is comfortable with the pre-fight preparation schedule, we can focus on Dusty's next bout," added Fried.
