Joey Dawejko Seeks Win, Next is Amir Mansour


Dawejko_Banks-2This Friday night at the 2300 Arena in South Philadelphia, streaking Heavyweight Joey Dawejko (13-3-2, 6 KO’s) of Philadelphia takes on Enobong Umohette (9-2, 8 KO’s) of Milwaukee, Wisconsin in a bout scheduled for 8-rounds.

Dawejko will be looking for his fourth consecutive first round knockout, and he just completed a month long training camp in Easton, PA.

The camp consisted of all members of Mark Cipparone’s Club 1957 Management and provided a good atmosphere that consisted of as many as a dozen boxers.

“Training camp went great. My whole team was there, and I am ready to go for Friday,” said Dawejko.

In Umohette, Dawejko is fighting a guy that he does not know much about other then he has fought mostly in the Midwest and holds a knockout over former U.S. Olympian, Dante Craig.

“There isn’t much tape on him. He is about 6-feet tall, and he must be able to punch a little bit based on his record.”

Should the former world Jr. Amateur champion be victorious, he could be in line for a May 8 showdown with Amir Mansour in a bout that would be part of an ESPN Friday Night Fight’s card.

“It wasn’t too hard to stay focused on this fight. I need this fight to put me in position for whatever fight is being talked about.”

Even though Dawejko’s last three bouts have ended before the end of the first round, he never goes in looking for the early stoppage.

“I never go into any fight looking to knock anyone out. We train for 8 rounds or more and if it comes, it comes.”

Dawejko will be fighting extra hard as he and his fiancee Maria are expecting their 2nd child around April 9.

He did not want to talk too much about Mansour, but Mansour artist will be ringside calling the action on and Comcast and when asked if Dawejko would have anything to say to Mansour, “I think it is great that Amir will be ringside so he can witness what he can look forward to on May 8.”

Said Dawejko’s manager Mark Cipparone of Club 1957 Management,” The reality is that Joey Dawejko “The Tank” has created a well-deserved buzz in boxing once again. I am sure that his last 3 fights ending in first-round explosive KO’s have something to do with it! And today, I can’t seem to go anywhere without someone asking me when “The Tank” will be fighting again? It’s exciting because Joey has renewed interest to many in boxing ranging from the dedicated fan to the newcomer and everyone in between. Everyone wants to see Joey fight!

As a hands-on manager, I spend a lot of time in the gym measuring boxers and Joey clearly has above average speed, above average power and most important he has an extremely high boxing IQ. As a result of this, Joey has earned both my attention and my full support, and I am proud of his accomplishments. Stay tuned because the best is yet to come as great things are ahead for “Team Dawejko”.
