Harrison, A. Guerrero Compete November 22 in Dover, DE!

Two Beltway Boxers will appear on a card at Dover Downs Hotel and Casino in Dover, DE on Friday, November 22.

Just 20 days after notching the biggest win of his career, WBC Youth Welterweight champion Dusty Hernandez Harrison of DC will battle Marlon Lewis of Memphis, TN in an eight-round non-title encounter.

Harrison (18-0, 10 KO's) won a 10-round unanimous decision over Josh Torres to win the title on November 2 at the Theater in Madison Square Garden in New York City.  Lewis (6-2-2, three KO's) is unbeaten in his last four bouts with two knockouts in that stretch.  However, Harrison is the most experienced foe Lewis has faced.

Also on the card, undefeated Salisbury, MD cruiserweight Alex Guerrero returns to action in a six-round contest against veteran Galen "Bad Boy" Brown of St. Joseph, MO.

Guerrero (9-0-1, five KO's) is coming off an eight-round unanimous decision victory over Terrance Smith on April 12 in Salisbury.  Brown (41-23-1, 24 KO's) has faced a number of contenders and former champions in the cruiserweight and heavyweight divisions over his 12-year boxing career including Rob Calloway, Tor Hamer, Brian Minto, Joey Abell, Tye Fields and former heavyweight champ Hasim Rahman.

kid is fighting to much. need to slow down. this is not the 60s. to many shots to the head. it aint worth the money. time is on your side.

I don't think he is fighting too much. He is being handled well. Fighting monthly, banking wins, learning his craft. I am not certain but I think thats how Canelo was moved at a young age as well.

He now fights for championships. Harrison is on the right path

Too many shots to the head? WTF...obviously you haven't seen too many of his fights. Kid has barely been touched since he's turned pro. I understand he's been down one time and got hit a few times in his last fight, but thats about it. He is doing fine and his team are doing a great job in his development. Its not as if he's been in 18 wars, not even one.

I love what they are doing with and for this young man. Mr. Harrision has taken good care to ensure that Dusty learns his craft. Competition is improving and he is maturing as a boxer. Give this kid time. He is not Canelo but he is not Sean O'Grady either (who was shot by his early 20's).

He is active in the gym, active in the ring, active in the community. He is also a very nice kid. True boxing fans should support and be proud of this young man. Other beltway boxers should pay attention to the path he is taking.

I agree 100%. I think it also helps our fighters to get out of the dmv every once in a while.
