While most of the boxing community gathered in Connecticut for the HBO Boxing After Dark event, a few hardcore fans congregated at the Resorts Casino in Atlantic City, NJ for a card that consisted of mostly local, hometown fighters, many making their pro debut. The main even was local Polish Middleweight Patrick Majewski who was taking on a rematch over an opponent he had won a majority decisions over, Latif Mundy. The judges scored the fight 98-92, 100-90, and 95-95. There’s always one. It was clear from the sound of the first bell that Majewski knew what he needed to do. Dominating all of the rounds, and fighting through a vicious cut over his left eye, his first in over a year and a half, Majewski admitted that it might be time to step up the quality of his opponents. “I need to step up with the fights especially with 21 fights and the age of 32, but ill take whatever my promoter gives me.” He also mentioned that a rematch with Jose Miguel Torres, the only fighter to give him a loss, is not out of the question. “That would be nice, they were trying to hook it up before but they couldn’t. It would be easy to prepare for this fight but it would be a difficult fight, he is a smart fighter.” This rematch was clearly a good fight, and it was not too difficult to prepare for. Majewski says that making weight is not an issue for him and with the help of his nutritionist he can stay at Middleweight, admittedly a very dangerous division, for a long time. On the undercard Atlantic City native and veteran fighter Shamone Alvarez took on fellow Atlantic City native and much younger fighter Decarlo Perez. The fight was a move up in weight for Alvarez, who normally campaigns at 147, taking place in the junior middleweight division. There was animosity between the two fighters, who were once close, going into the ring and it showed when Alvarez came out swinging, banging to the body fiercely in the first round, setting a quick pace. While Alvarez landed his fair share of punches so did Perez. The second round was some of the same with a back and forth pace, both fighters landing shots and backing each other up. The third round started as Perez came out strong and immediately found a sweet spot on Alvarez. The assault continued and the ref called a halt to the bout in the third round. The youngster got the best of the veteran. Speaking of youngsters, Hasan Young (1-1-1) fell to Emmanuel Colon (3-0). In what was a great battle of two young fighters that took place in a phone booth, Young and Colon gave it their all. With each of them appearing to be hurt in each round, the stoppage, which came in the fourth round, was very questionable. It doesn’t matter who was ahead on the cards, it was just a great fight. Also on the card last night, Terrell James started his career with a win over Anthony Prescott, all three judges scoring the bought 39-36. Michael Chudecki scored a third round TKO over Moses Molina, and Patryk Syzmanski won a unanimous decision over Adrian Wilson, who after having a rapper bring him to the ring, just couldn’t get into the groove, the judges scoring it 40-36 (x2) and 40-35.
