He also boxed a draw with 18-1-1 Andres Taylor in Taylor’s backyard of Johnstown, PA, in a fight Wilson accepted on 36 hours’ notice.
Mussachio, 32, of Wildwood, NJ, is a school teacher and he is nicknamed The Professor. He hopes to teach Wilson a lesson he will never forget.
A pro since 2005, Mussachio (right) is 17-1-2, 5 K0s. In his last fight Dec. 12 in the same ring, he earned an eight-round decision over Theo Kruger, of Port Charlotte, FL, for his fourth win in a row. He also defeated Tony Ferrante, of Philadelphia, PA, and Bobby Rooney, of Bayonne, NJ, in that streak..
Mussachio has lost only to world-rated Tom Karpency, of Adah, PA, via 10-round decision.
