Sometimes you meet someone, and hear a story that has so much heart and courage, that you can’t help but tell it. Dusty Harrison is one of those stories. He’s a 20 year old that’s been stepping into the ring with grown men since he was 16, looking for a way in the world that lets him use the gifts he was given.
Dusty came up in the tough streets of Southeast DC, kept on the straight and narrow by the love of a father who didn’t want him to repeat the mistakes he had. He put gloves on Dusty at 2, and pushed him every day of his life, and together they are finding salvation.
Now at 23-0, Dusty Hernandez Harrison is the biggest draw to come out of DC since Sugar Ray Leonard, and the 15th ranked welterweight in the world.
