Just added Tevin Farmer in 8-round co-feature plus undefeated Anthony Burgin; Nathaniel Rivas; Johnson Jajoute and Roberto Irizarry
CHESTER, PA (September 2, 2014) — On Friday, September 19, Heavyweight Joey Dawejko take on Yohan Banks in the featured 8-round bout at Harrahs Philadelphia.
He turned professional in 2009 with a 6-round unanimous decision over Royphy Solieau. He won his first six bouts (and was 7-0-1 in his first eight) which included knockout wins over undefeated fighters Ricardo Johnson and John Lennox.
Dawejko is not afraid to take on top competition as nearly half of his fights have been against undefeated fighters.
In his last three bouts, Dawejko has been coming into his own with his two biggest wins when he scored a unanimous decision over former top-ten heavyweight contender Derric Rossy as well as an impressive unanimous decision over undefeated Philadelphian Mark Rideout (4-0-2) on May 16. He followed those two fights up with an explosive 1st round stoppage over David Williams on August 2 in Atlantic City. In that bout, Dawejko scored three vicious knockdowns in the bout that lasted just 108 seconds.
In 4-round Bouts:
Nathaniel Rivas (4-0, 1 KO) of Berlin, NJ will take on an opponent to be named in a Welterweight battle.
