Majewski & Perez Win at Resorts in AC By Ken Hissner at ringside, Doghouse Boxing (Oct 1, 2012) Doghouse Boxing - Tweet
City’s Patrick “The Machine” Majewski, 20-1 (13), won a majority
decision over Latif Mundy, 10-5 (4), of Philadelphia over 10 exciting
rounds Saturday night at Resorts Hotel & Casino in Atlantic City,
NJ! Originally from Radom, POL, Majewski had defeated Lundy in 2009 by
decision. Global Boxing in association with Peltz Boxing Promotions,
Inc., promoted the show with J Russell Peltz serving as matchmaker.
Star Ballroom at Resorts was jumping from the opening bout especially
when DeCarlo Perez, 8-2-1 (3), upset fellow Atlantic City boxer Shame
“The Truth” Alvarez, 21-6 (12), in the semi-windup. In addition to
Majewski there were 2 Polish imports and a hard hitting Colombian now
out of Puerto Rico.
Majewski used a good jab to start the
bout as Lundy was slipping punches and landed an overhand right to
highlight his part of the round. Majewski started to go to the body
with solid left hooks in the second round. Majewski was dominating the
third round when a 3 punch combination by Lundy opened a cut over
Majewski’s left eye near the end of the round.
fourth provided good exchanges from both fighters as the cut re-opened
causing blood to cover the left side of Majewski’s face but it did not
stop him from throwing punches. The fifth round was more of the same
with Majewski landing a 4 punch combination that had Lundy in
trouble. Though all the rounds but the sixth through the eighth were
competitive, Lundy was always in the fight. His trunks were covered
with Majewski’s blood. In the ninth Majewski hurt Lundy twice.
the tenth and final round both fighters went all out to the delight of
the crowd. Both fighters embraced after the fight with both showing
good sportsmanship. Benjy Esteves, Jr., did a fine job in handling the
action as the referee. When ring announcer Dean Stone read the score of
judge Shaeeq Rashad’s at 95-95 a hush came over the crowd in
disbelief. Tony Perez had it 98-92 and Barbara Perez followed with
100-90 as did DHB. This shut out score was no reflection on the
competitiveness of the fight.
In the semi-windup the
corners of both Perez and Alvarez were taunting each other prior to the
start of the fight. Alvarez made it known he couldn’t believe the 21
year-old Perez wanted this fight since he claimed to knock out Perez in
the gym several years ago. At 35 the southpaw Alvarez had lost his last
3 fights and was obviously past his prime of being a once contender.
rushed across the ring and rocked Perez with the first punch and
followed up with a flurry of punches that Perez was able to
overcome. He was able to come back and hurt Alvarez twice before the
round was over. In the second round Perez hurt Alvarez with an uppercut
but Alvarez came fighting back. By the third round youth was
overcoming experience as Perez was growing more and more confident while
Alvarez was on the legs of a 35 year-old veteran with plenty of tough
fights behind him.
Perez had Alvarez in trouble against
the ropes with nothing coming back in return when referee Lindsay Page
jumped in to the astonishment of Alvarez and stopped it at 2:01 of the
third round. It may have been a quick stoppage but the hand writing was
on the wall in this blockbuster of a fight. The fans were going crazy
from the opening round being both fighters were from Atlantic City.
the dressing room Alvarez asked “where do I go from here. Am I going
to just be an opponent?” In the meantime Perez was still in the ring
being interviewed by Marc Abrams of www.gfl.tv. He seemed grateful for
the opportunity and the win. “I knew he would come out fast but I had
to get past that and knew I would eventually wear him down,” said
Veteran manager/cut-man Jim Williams of NJ had
advised this writer ahead of time that he would not put any of his
fighters in with Alvarez due to the fact he was on his last legs and
could get hurt. He certainly called this one. His co-manager with Mike
Jones, Teon Kennedy and Niam Nelson, Doc Nowicki was co-manager of
Perez and jumped on the opportunity.
In the previous fight
which was the lone 6 on the card Peltz lived up to his reputation of
putting 2 prospects against each other early in their career which is
great for the fans but usually not for the losing fighter. Colombian
Emmanuel “Pinky” Colon, 3-0 (3), now out of PR came into the ring with
his entourage while he was decked out in yellow, red and black while
beaming with confidence. What he didn’t know was a Philadelphia
prospect in the name of Hasan Young, 1-1-1 (0), would be his opponent.
didn’t take long for Colon to open up while Young was more cautious at
the start. Both fighters battled inside non-stop with Colon gaining the
advantage. In the second round it was a war! Young’s trainer Kevin
Carmody had him come out throwing left hooks that brought a look of
surprise to Colon. At the end of the round Young was hurt by a Colon
In the third round both fighters were
throwing bombs and taking turns rocking one another with Colon getting
the better of it as Young went back to his corner on unsteady leg’s. In
the fourth round Colon was wearing down Young with uppercuts. When
Colon delivered 3 straight power punches the referee Esteves jumped in
and stopped it. These junior welterweights gave the fans plenty to
cheer about. Colon’s 2 previous wins were first round knockouts in
PR. Little did he expect Young to put up such a good fight. At 21, a
year older than Colon, Young still has a good career ahead of him with a
better plan of matchmaking from his management.
show opener set the stage for the entire card as Anthony Prescott, 1-1
(1), of Cherry Hill, NJ, was throwing right hand bombs at Terrell James,
1-0 (0), of Philadelphia in a welterweight 4 rounder. James wasn’t
slipping many of them while mostly on the defense. At the end of the
round his trainer Will Morris read him the riot act. Out came James
with a solid left hook taking the next 2 rounds from Prescott who wasn’t
throwing as many punches but still landing solid right hands.
fourth round had Prescott wearing down some on the retreat but landing
more than his share of punches. It looked like a draw would have been
the best for both but the judges all agreed on 39-37 scores for James.
Majewski being from Poland 2 Polish prospects were up next to the
delight of the many Polish fans in attendance. Michal “TNT” Chudecki, a
4x Polish champ, and southpaw, from Poznan, was picking apart Moses
Molina, 1-1 (1), of Bridgeton, NJ, who at 18 had no answer for the 25
year-old Chudecki. It was all Chudecki in the second round as a
bewildered Molina knew he was in “over his head”. The third round was
more of the same with Chucecki landing at will in a neutral corner
before referee Esteves wisely stopped it at 1:55 of the third round.
next was Patryk Szymanski, 2-0 (1), of Zyweic, POL, a former amateur
Polish champ who had height and reach on Adrian Wilson, 0-1 (0), of
Atlantic City, NJ, in a welterweight 4. Wilson never seemed to gather
himself together. Whether it was making his debut in front of the home
crowd or simply not knowing how to get inside of the reach of Szymanski,
he was on the receiving end for the most part. Barbara Perez and
Rashad had it 40-36 as did DHB while Tony Perez had it 40-35 all for
