Hernandez Harrison Wins USBA Welterweight Championship With Unanimous Decision In Philadelphia!

Washington, DC welterweight Dusty Hernandez Harrison has scored the biggest win of his career to date with a 10-round unanimous decision over Thomas "Cornflake" La Manna of Millville, NJ today at the 2300 Arena in Philadelphia, PA.  Harrison earns the vacant USBA Welterweight title with the victory, shown on the CBS Sports Network.

Hernandez Harrison started slowly in the first couple of rounds as LaManna was able to use his height and shoot jabs. However, LaManna's punches had very little effect on Harrison, giving the DC native opportunities in the later rounds to land punishing shots of his own.

By the end of the bout, Hernandez Harrison was in complete control and went on to win by scores of 98-92 and 97-93 (twice).  The win should also put Hernandez Harrison in the top 15 in the world in the next IBF rankings.  Hernandez Harrison remains undefeated at 30-0-1, 16 KO's.  LaManna falls to 21-2, nine KO's.  Both LaManna's losses have come against Beltway Boxers.  LaManna's first loss came against Antoine Douglas in May of 2013 by sixth-round TKO.
