Jamaal Davis in Must Win Fight Against Patrick Majewski on Feb. 23 at Bally’s Atlantic City
Atlantic City, NJ—Jamaal Davis, the hard-luck Philadelphian who never seems to win the big one, gets another chance Saturday evening, Feb. 23, when he boxes world-ranked middleweight Patrick Majewski in the scheduled 10-round main event at Bally’s Atlantic City.
Davis, 31, a pro for nine years, has boxed mostly as a junior middleweight, but he steps up to middleweight for this one.
The fight with Majewski marks the fifth time Davis has faced a world-rated opponent. He lost the previous four: Peter Quillen, of New York, Ossie Duran, of Paterson, NJ, Joel Julio, of Colombia, and Gabriel Rosado, of Philadelphia.
Trying to turn things around in 2012, Davis won his only two fights last year, a pair of eight-round decisions over Eberto Medina, of Newark, NJ, and Doel Carrasquillo, of Lancaster, PA. The win over Medina avenged a previous draw in 2011.
Overall, Davis is 14-8-1, 6 K0s. He is 2-2-1 at Bally’s.
“This is the one I have to win,” said Davis, who is self-managed and trained by Sharron Baker. “I’m at the point where I’ve gotta make something happen and I have no problem at 160 pounds. I’ve had plenty of time to get ready and I’m in good shape. If I beat Majewski, I can jump into the world rankings and make some noise. I’m not interested in being an opponent for the rest of my career. I see other guys stepping in and making money and that’s what I see in my future.”
Majewski, 33, of Somers Point, NJ, is ranked No. 9 in the world by the WBC, No. 15 by the WBO. He has won all of his previous five fights at Bally’s.
In his last fight Sept. 29, Majewski earned a unanimous 10-round decision over another Philadelphian, Latif Mundy, but suffered facial cuts which have kept him on the shelf.
Majewski is managed by Arnold Robbins and trained by Bill Johnson.
Light-heavyweight Chuck Mussachio, of Wildwood, NJ, opposes Lionel Thompson, of Buffalo, NY, in the eight-round semifinal.
