Dharry started his professional career with two wins, but then ran into a brick wall losing five of his next seven, which included losses to presently undefeated Isander Beauchamp and current WBC world super bantamweight champion Leo Santa Cruz. “It was tough for me” said “I was taking fights on very short notice. A lot of People say I was in tough, but I was not prepared. I felt my career slipping so I stopped taking short notice fight and the wins began to pile up,” thirteen victories in row to be exact, which included impressive wins over Dexter Marques (8-1, 3KOs), Eilon Kedem (11-3-4, 7KOs) and Rudolph Hedge (7-0-3, 2KOs).

I have seen him fight and he is very aggressive,” said Elton Dharry. “My trainer Martin Gonzalez and I have gone over his fights. He is an aggressive fighter that throws a lot of punches. He is the Nicaraguan champion and recently defended his title on October 24th against Frederick Castro, so I am will be in excellent shape. It should be an exciting fight all in attendance.”
