North Bergen, NJ (October 13, 2011) - Four of Poland's rising boxing stars will be in action on November 5 when undefeated boxers Mariusz Wach, Patrick Majewski, Artur Szpilka and Kamil Laszczyk take over the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Conn.
The show, promoted by Jimmy Burchfield's Classic Entertainment and Sports and Global Boxing, will mark the first time that all four Polish fighters appear on the same card.
Wach, 25-0 (13 KO), of North Bergen, N.J. by way of Krakow, Poland will be facing his toughest test to date in McCall (56-11, 37 KO) of Chicago, Ill. In 1994, McCall knocked out heavyweight legend Lennox Lewis with a single overhand right to become the heavyweight champion of the world, and then defeated another legend in Larry Holmes in a title defense.
McCall has defeated five former or future heavyweight champions in his career and has shown he is still a force in the heavyweight division by beating contenders Fres Oquendo and Franklin Lawrence in his last five fights. In his most recent bout, McCall defeated 30-2 (23 KO) contender Damian Wills.
Wach, who met Lennox Lewis when the living legend was recently in Poland, is coming off his biggest win to date when he knocked out Mike Tyson-conqueror Kevin McBride in four rounds in July. Wach is the ninth ranked contender with the WBC and is looking to enhance his credentials as a future heavyweight champion of the world.
The WBO NABO middleweight champ Majewski of Atlantic City, N.J. by way of Radom, Poland will look to annex the NABF middleweight title when he faces his toughest test to date against Colombian KO artist Dionisio Miranda. Majewski, 16-0 (11 KO), is coming off a career best performance in June when he shut out Marcus Upshaw. Miranda, 21-7-2 (18 KO), has fought some of the best in the world, including former champion Roman Karmazin and Peter Quillin.
Heavyweight prospect Artur Szpilka of Wieliczka, Poland joined Wach on the most recent card at Mohegan Sun, scoring a first round knockout against David Williams. The 7-0 (5 KO) Szpilka of Wieliczka, Poland is promoted by Andrew Wasilewski from 12Rounds KnockOut Promotions and is a dangerous southpaw with one punch power in both hands. His opponent will be announced shortly.
Laszczyk, 20, of North Bergen, N.J. by way of Wroclaw, Poland will also be in action in a four-round featherweight assignment. Laszczyk is currently 4-0 (3 KO) and is coming off a decision victory over Terrance Roy earlier this month.
