Harrison MSG Opponent Changes!

The opponent has changed for Dusty Hernandez Harrison's appearance at Madison Square Garden on Saturday, July 26.

Veteran Wilfredo "El Zurdo" Acuna of Nicaragua will replace Eli Addison in the scheduled eight-round contest.  Acuna (15-14, 12 KO's) is in a tough stretch, losing seven of his last eight.  However, six of those seven losses have come to undefeated boxers including newly-crowned world champion Chris Algeri and, in his last outing on April 24, Cletus Seldin. Acuna was stopped in the seventh round by Seldin in Huntington, NY.

According to Boxrec, the bout is still for Harrison's WBC Youth Silver title.  However, with Acuna being 32 years old, he hardly fits the criteria.  The bout will be on the undercard of the Gennady Golovkin-Daniel Geale main event.

Harrison will have no problems with Acuna. Like you reported Gary, six of the last seven losses that Acuna suffered were from undefeated fighter. Harrison is another hungry undefeated fighter that will not let Acuna give him first loss. I see a unanimous decision or a KO in the late rounds.
