There will be a solid double header at Bally’s in Atlantic City, NJ, Saturday night promoted by Peltz Boxing Promotions and Global Boxing Promotions. J Russell Peltz and Brittany Rogers matchmakers. Atlantic City’s Pat “The Machine” Majewski, 20-1 (13), will be taking on Philadelphia’s Jamaal “Da Truth aka Tyson” Davis, 14-8-1 (6), in a 10 round middleweight match. In the co-feature Wildwood, NJ, light heavyweight Chuck “The Professor” Mussachio meets Lionel “Lonnie B” Thompson, 12-2 (8), of Buffalo, NY, over 8 rounds.
Majewski, from Radom, Poland, now Atlanti c City, is 7-0 in Atlantic City fights, having won his last 3. His last fight was in September winning a re-match over Philadelphia’s Latif Mundy by majority decision over 10 rounds. Known as “The Machine”, Majewski throws straight punches usually off a solid jab and is in front of you looking for the knockout. Of his 13 knockouts 10 have come inside of 6 rounds. He is ranked No. 9 by the WBC. He is trained by Bill Johnson and managed by Arnold Robbins.
Davis is a slick thinking boxer who this writer watched training at Shuler’s Gym Monday night. He comes to fight and has met current WBO middleweight champion Peter Quillin, Ossie Duran, Joel Julio and recent title challenger Gabe Rosado. He is unbeaten in his last 3 fights including a draw he reversed in his next fight. He is self-managed and trained by Sharron Baker.
“This is the one I have to win. I’m at a point I have to make something happen and I have no problem at 160 pounds (last 5 fights at 154). I have had plenty of time to get ready and am in good shape. If I beat Majewski , I can jump into the ratings and make some noise. I’m not interested in being an opponent the rest of my career. I see other guys stepping in and making some money and that’s what I see in my future,” said Davis. His trainer Baker added “It’s our time. Whatever he brings we’ll be ready for him.”
“It’s about who shows up, not the records. Sparring has been good with Rosado, Julian Williams and Yusaf Mack. Atlantic City is basically a home for me. You’ll see my gym behind me. Sharon is my head trainer and performing for her would give her recognition,” said Davis.
Mussachio has won 5 of his last 6 fights and won the World Boxing Foundation United States title in a war with Philadelphia’s Tony “Boom Boom” Ferrante in 2010. Ahead on points in 2011 against Garrett “The Ultimate Warrior” Wilson, he was stopped in the 12th and final round for the USBA cruiserweight title. He came back at his normal 175 in May of 2012 with a victory. He and Majewski spar regularly. He is trained by his father Al Mussachio. “I know little about Thompson except he was a very good amateur,” said C. Mussachio.
Thompson won his first 12 bouts before dropping his last 2 when stepping up in competition, both in 2012. He lost fighting for the NABA title he lost to Nicholson Poulard in Canada. Then in his last fight he lost to world ranked Sergey Kovalev in September. He is managed by Timony Ziccardi.
