Light-heavyweight Chuck Mussachio, of Wildwood, NJ, who has been on the fringe of the world rankings in recent years, returns on Saturday, February 23, at Bally’s Atlantic City, in a scheduled eight-round bout against Lionel Thompson, of Buffalo, NY. Topping the seven-bout card is a scheduled10-round middleweight contest between Patrick Majewski, of Somers Point, NJ, and Jamaal Davis, of Philadelphia, PA.

  Mussachio, 33, is a full-time guidance counselor at Ocean City (NJ) Primary School and he has boxed only once in each of the last two years. He also works as a bartender once or twice a week at the Concord Café in Avalon, NJ.

   Late in 2011 at Bally’s, in a valiant attempt to take the USBA cruiserweight title from Garrett Wilson, of Philadelphia, Mussachio was stopped in the 12th round after leading on two of the three scorecards. He had moved up a weight class for that attempt. He weighed 183 ½ pounds against Wilson, the heaviest of his career.

   In his last fight on May 19, 2012, also at Bally’s, Mussachio rebounded and scored an eight-round decision over Bill Bailey, of Bakersfield, CA.  

 A pro since 2005, Mussachio is 18-2-2, 5 K0s. His victims include ex-WBA light middleweight champ Carl Daniels, of St. Louis; Anthony Ferrante, of Philadelphia; Richard Stewart, of Dover, DE.  

 Thompson, 27, won his first 12 fights, eight by knockout, before running into some hard luck.

   In his last fight Sept. 21 at the Sands Casino Resort Bethlehem (PA), Thompson was stopped in three rounds by unbeaten Sergey Kovalev, of Chelyabinsk, Russia, in a fight Thompson accepted on three weeks’ notice .
