Visinia takes on Dawejko on Friday


Natu VisiniaNutley, NJ (August 27, 2015)– Heavyweight Natu Visinia will be looking for his 2nd consecutive victory when he takes on Joey Dawejko in an eight-round bout that will be part of a ShoBox: The New Generation card tomorrow night at the D Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. (11 pm ET/PT on Showtime)

Visinia is co-promoted by GH3 Promotions and Final Forum Promotions.

Visinia is coming off a fourth-round stoppage over Joshua Clark on May 13 in Hollywood, California.

With that win, the 30-year-old from Clinton, Illinois raised his mark to 11-1 with nine knockouts.

Most fans were introduced to Visinia when he fought former two-time world champion Steve “USS” Cunningham on October 18, 2014. That fight was Visnia’s only career blemish as he was stopped in seven rounds in a fight that in hindsight he should not have competed in.

“There was a lot going on around the fight. It is well known that my trainer, Charles Bereal suddenly passed away from a heart attack just eight days before the fight,” said Visinia.

When asked if he had it to do all over again, Visinia may not have gone through with the fight.

“I learned in boxing that it is best to move the right way. I am now fighting my 2nd top-25 guy. At the point of the Cunningham fight, I had no business in the fight.” That being said, I did learn a lot in that fight. I saw that I missed a lot of shots, and my hands were low. I also knew, I had to cut off the ring better. But I have had a lot of top-notch sparring, and I know I have corrected all that. I went into camps in Big Bear, California with Charles Martin and Andrey Fedosov.”

Now he looks to the showdown with Dawejko, which is another fight that is not an ideal situation as he has become good friends with his opponent.

“I have become good friends with Joey. We met a couple years ago as we were both in a Wladimir Klitschko camp. We continue to communicate on social media but going into the fight it is normal business.”

Against Dawejko, Visinia will have a size advantage, and this is something he believes could be the difference in his favor.

“I will definitely have a reach advantage, and I plan to utilize it. My power and he is a tough little scrapper; it should make for a fun fight to watch.”

“I am glad to get another opportunity on national television. People have been wondering what I have been up to as it is tough finding fights. I have been training for the last six months. There have been several big names that are ahead of me in the rankings that have turned down fights, so I am happy for this opportunity.”
