Dusty Hernandez-Harrison off DC card

Statement: Today the decision was made that Dusty Hernandez-Harrison will not fight on tomorrow’s Beltway Battles: Round Three card. Over Dusty’s objections, this last-minute decision was made in his best interests by those around him, including medical staff, his family, his trainers and the promoters. His overall health and the need for more time to heal outweighed his desire to return at this time. We stand behind him 100% and expect him to resume his boxing career very soon. We have an outstanding fight card Saturday and know the entire boxing community is eager to get together and celebrate the life of Buddy Harrison. — Beltway Battles Promoters and Team Dusty

The Beltway Battles: Round Three event at the Entertainment & Sports Arena in Washington, DC, features nine bouts headlined by an eight round rematch between super lightweights Greg “Sharp Shooter” Outlaw, Jr. (10-1, 5 KOs) and Wilfrido Buelvas (22-15, 16 KOs). A PPV will be streamed live by BXNG TV.

  • Best wishes to DHH. They postponed his last fight because his father had been killed not too long ago, I hope he works his way back. His career seemed like it stalled and he’s been out now nearly 3 years, but he’s still just 28 and he’s 34-0-1.

  • Best of luck young man! The fight(s) that are waged outside of the ring are far more difficult and important! Our thoughts are with you and your family!!

  • Wow, his fathers death flew under the radar. I remember years back I read an article about how close he was to his father and his father trained him and guided his career. Buddy Harrison seemed like a great guy. He ran a boxing program in DC where he was a trainer and mentor to kids. Ironically kids said they went there to feel safe. It sounds like Buddy Harrison was doing exacly what he was meant to be doing on this planet. I would be breat if Dusty Harrison could get his career back on track and become the fighter he was supposed to be.

    • Wasn’t under the radar here in the dmv. It was and continues to be headline news. Especially due to beltway boxing and his status in the boxing community. They actually had video of the perpetrators. It looked like a planned hit job. It was a terrible thing.

  • Dusty was going to fight at heavyweight which he is not. 160 or 175 is better for him. Apparently he picked up over 100 lbs while he was away. He should fight again until he is 100% ready physically and otherwise.
