A chance to fight in boxing's "mecca" comes Saturday when 19-year-old Dusty Hernandez-Harrison – a rising undefeated welterweight out of Washington, D.C. and maybe the next big thing in boxing – steps into the ring at Madison Square Garden to face Josh Torres for something called the World Boxing Council Youth Welterweight world championship.
On the other hand, Mr. Harrison said, boxing "saved" his son from falling in with the wrong crowd and also has kept him in peak physical condition.
"When I see some of the kids fighting and getting hurt ... I used to say if that was my son, I'd never let him box. The only reason I still condone it is because he's never gotten hurt," Mr. Harrison said.
