Harrison teams with Fried to handle boxing career


By Gary “Digital” Williams

Undefeated Washington, DC welterweight Dusty Harrison will team with noted DC attorney Jeff Fried for the next phase of his boxing career. According to Harrison’s father, Buddy, this will allow the 18-year-old fan favorite (11-0, seven KO’s) the ability to remain a free agent and not sign with any promoter. “Jeff knows his business and this is a great opportunity for Dusty to grow in this business,” Buddy Harrison said. Fried (pronounced Freed) is well known in the boxing and sports business, having advised boxers like Lamont Peterson, Tony Thompson and Sharmba Mitchell along with other sports notables like NBA players Steve Francis, Ty Lawson and Monta Ellis, golfer Corey Pavin and CBS Sports announcer James Brown. “I am totally committed to moving Dusty to the welterweight title,” Fried told Fightnews. “We are looking to get Dusty back in the ring in February.”
