Jeter is slated to return to action on Saturday, June 14 at the ABC Sports Complex in Springfield, VA.
Meanwhile, WBC Youth Welterweight champion Dusty Hernandez Harrison is part of a video about world champion poker player Phil Ivey. The video talks about Ivey, who is part of Harrison's managerial company All-In Entertainment, being able to see Harrison fight in person in Harrison's last contest on March 7 in Pala, CA.

Harrison is slated to return to action on Saturday, May 24 at the American Bank Center in Corpus Christi, TX.
