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.
"My mother [Dusty's parents are divorced, but his mother Lynda Hernandez is very much a part of Dusty's life and career] always made me promise to stay on my schooling," he said. "I've taken a few college classes. I graduated from Thomas Stone High School. I was on the honor roll there and played varsity basketball for two years. I just went back there to speak to a class about how important it is to take advantage of every opportunity you have to succeed."
