untitledCHESTER, PA (November 3, 2014)- On Friday night, November 14, rising Heavyweight Joey Dawejko will look for his fifth consecutive win when he takes on Rayford Johnson in the 8-round main event at Harrahs Philadelphia in Chester, PA.
 
The show is promoted by Joey Eye Boxing and XFE.
 
Dawejko of Philadelphia has a record of 12-3-2 with 5 knockouts and in his four bout winning streak, the last two have ended in explosive first round stoppages.
 
The 24 year-old Dawejko was a former world junior amateur champion which was part of a 56-12 record in the non-paid ranks.

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.

In his last four 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 his last bout, Dawejko dtopped Yohan Banks three times in the first round en route to the opening round win on September 19 at Harrahs Philadelphia.

Johnson of Longview, Texas has a record of 10-15 with six knockouts.
He is a good foe for Dawejko as despite his record, he is very capable with quality wins over Terrrence Woods (7-0), Arman Mrkanovic (4-1), former world title challenger Will Mcintyre (40-5-1).  In his last two bouts, Johnson has two great wins over Ernesy Reyma (4-0) and his last bout which was a 6th round stoppage over Vincent Miranda (16-1) on August 15 in Saratoga Springs, NY.
Some of the best talent in the area will be on display on the undercard Raymond “Tito” Serrano will return in a six round Jr. Welterweight bout.
Serrano of Philadelphia has a record of 18-2 with 8 knockouts.
The 25 year-old Serrano won his first 18 bouts and became a household name as he appeared regularly on ESPN’s Friday Night Fights as he scored wins over Ashantie Hendrickson (1-0), Jay Krupp (12-1), Ronnie Warrior Jr. (13-2-1) & Ayi Bruce (15-2).  He is looking to get back into the win column as he has dropped two in a row to Karim Mayfield and Emanuel Taylor.
Serrano is promoted by Joe DeGuardia’s Star Boxing.
Serrano’s opponent will be named shortly.
In four round bouts:
Alex Barbosa (4-1-1, 1 KO) of Philadelphia will take on Benjamin Burgos (1-9-1) of Mount Pocono, PA in a Super Bantamweight bout.
Nathaniel Rivas (5-0, 2 KO’s) of Berlin, NJ will take on an opponent to be named in a Welterweight bout.
