Congratulations to FILA's #dustyhernandezharrison, the newly crowned #usbawelterweight Champion and IBF world ranked contender. Hernandez-Harrison stepped into the ring against Thomas "Cornflake" LaManna, in a quest for the USBA title. The fight served as the main #event on CBS Sports Network, televised nationwide on September 15.

The 2300 Arena in #philadelphia, Pennsylvania served as neutral ground for both fighters, as Hernandez-Harrison hails from Washington D.C. and LaManna from New Jersey. After 10 rounds, Hernandez-Harrison was the victor by unanimous decision. Judges scored the fight 98-92 | 97-93 | 97-93 respectively. The win not only marked the 30th of Dusty’s career, but also awarded him the vacant #usbawelterweight title and an eventual IBF World ranking in the welterweight class. Dusty's record now stands at 30-0-1.

FILA signed the Roc Nation Sports boxer earlier this year. Dusty wore FILA’s BX-100 boxing shoe for his fight. The footwear was created exclusively for him and features a navy and white colorway. Dusty’s shorts and entrance robe for the fight were designed in the brand’s signature hues, inspired by the pieces seen on 1970’s #fila tennis legends.
