"Whereas; the relentless, non-stop attack proudly allowed him to capture the title belt and go down in history as the new NABO Middleweight Champion of the World; and
"Whereas, Patrick's hard work, determination and devotion to the sport of boxing have paid off and are an inspiration to many.

I have worked very hard to reach this goal, and will continue to work hard to achieve higher plateaus in my career. To have the support of Atlantic City, as well as my fans back home in Poland and those who come to my fights, gives me great inspiration and motivation to reach for my goals."
