Patrick Majewski, 160, of Somers Point, NJ, gradually wore down a game challenge from Jamaal Davis, 159, of Philadelphia, PA, to earn a unanimous 10-round decision in their middlewight main event in front of a standing-room-only crowd in the Grand Ballroom at Bally’s Atlantic City. Davis, 31, moved up from junior middleweight for this match and was able to hit Majewski at will in the early going. By the third round, however, the difference in size and power was evident as Majewski, 33, originally from Radom, Poland, began to push Davis around the ring with steady, but powerful shots. The difference in size was telling. Scores were 98-92, 99-91, 99-91.

The win moved Majewski to 21-1, 13 K0s, and solidified his world ranking–No. 9 with the WBC, No. 15 with the WBO. Davis, who again failed to win a “step up” fight, falls to 14-9-1, 6 K0s. He will move back down–after a long rest–to the junior middleweight class.

A major shocker in the 8-round light-heavyweight co-feature saw Lionel Thompson, 177, of Buffalo, NY, knock down and stop local favorite Chuck Mussachio, 173, of Wildwoof, NJ, whren Mussachio failed to answer the bell for the third round. Thompson goes to 13-2, 9 K0s while Mussachio drops to 18-3-2, 5 K0s.

In four-round fights: Joshua Reyes, 126, Vineland, NJ, won by decision over Tommy Garcia, 126, Hartford, CT, featherweights; Greg Jackson, 152, Philadelphia, won by decision over Alex Sanchez, 154, Camden, NJ; Anthony Burgin, 126, Philadelphia, won by decision over Elvis Rodriguez, 122, Manchester, CT; Anthony Prescott, 148, Cherry Hill, fought to a draw with Saud Clark, 145, Philadelphia.
