Harrison Opponent Changes In Florida; Dozier Battles Veteran Foreman In New York!

BATB has received word that the opponent for undefeated DC welterweight Dusty Hernandez Harrison's bout on Saturday, December 5 at the Osceola Heritage Center in Kissimmee, FL has changed.

Harrison (28-0, 15 KO's) reportedly is now taking on Samuel "Bruno" Amoako of Accra, Ghana (21-5, 15 KO's) in the 10-round contest.  Amoako makes his US debut in this bout after competing most of his career in his homeland.  Amoako's last contest was on November 7 when he was stopped in the third round by Miguel Roman in Chihuahua, Mexico.

Harrison's original opponent, Steve Claggett, was scratched from the card due to visa issues.  Harrison's original bout was scheduled to be shown on HBO Latino.  No word yet on whether this bout will be shown.

Also on December 5, Suitland, MD welterweight Lenwood "Mr. Composure" Dozier will be in action against former WBA Super Welterweight champion Yuri Foreman of Brooklyn, NY at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.  Dozier (9-9-1, four KO's) will look to break a four-bout losing streak including a seventh-round stoppage loss to Javier Molina on October 13 in Shelton, WA in his last contest.

Foreman (32-2, nine KO's) returns to the ring for the first time in more than two years.  Foreman has not fought since scoring a first-round knockout of Jovany Javier Gomez in November of 2013 in Hollywood, FL.  This bout will be on the undercard of the all-Brooklyn WBA Middleweight title bout between champion Daniel Jacobs and former WBO Middleweight champ Peter Quillin.
