Dawejko of Philadelphia has a record of 8-3-2 with 3 knockouts and he knows that a win over Rossy could catapult himself back to being considered one of the best young Heavyweight prospects in the United States.

“Rossy had his time,”said Dawejko “He could have been a top contender but now it is my time.”

This is by far the most experienced foe that the 23-year old Dawejko has faced.

“I know he has a lot of experience, but I am a different fight from anybody he has faced.

Dawejko is not fazed by his three losses and two draws as he knows what a win over Rossy could do for his career.

“Right now I am in the best shape of my whole professional career. I will use my many skills and abilities. I am ready for anything that he brings to the table. I feel this will be the highlight of my career so far. I have been training extra hard and I feel the way I have been working for this can not beat me.”

The fight is less than one hour from Dawejko’s hometown of Philadelphia and he feels a hometown advantage could be a key to winning the fight.

“I love Atlantic City. I prefer this over anyplace including Las Vegas. I am comfortable here and a lot of my friends and family will be at the fight.”
