Hernandez Harrison To Defend WBC Youth Silver Title July 26 in Madison Square Garden!

DC welterweight Dusty Hernandez Harrison will make the first defense of his WBC Youth Silver Welterweight title on Saturday, July 26 at Madison Square Garden in New York City.

Harrison (22-0, 12 KO's) will face Eli Addison of Winston-Salem, NC in an eight-round contest.  Harrison stopped veteran Roberto Valenzuela in the fourth round in his last outing on May 17.

Addison (11-3, four KO's) has only fought once since 2007.  However, Addison won a six-round unanimous decision over previously undefeated Meegal Harper on May 2 in Atlanta, GA.  The biggest name on Addison's record was a loss to future world champion Timothy Bradley in March of 2006.  Addison lost an eight-round unanimous decision for the very title that he will be competing for on July 26.
