ShoBox: The New Generation LIVE on SHOWTIME This Friday, Aug. 28 at 11 p.m. ET/PT From “The D” in Las Vegas
On Friday, August 28, Philadelphia’s Joey Dawejko (15-4-2, 8KOs) takes on once-defeated Natu ‘The Truth’ Visinia (11-1-0, 9KOs) of Clinton, Illinois, in a clash of heavyweight hopefuls, live on Shobox. Fight fans are, no doubt, itching to see Dawejko in action again. After all, it’s been just three weeks since Dawejko blasted out Robert Dunton (11-15-1, 6KOs) via 31 second, first round KO in Atlantic City. Visinia, however, should be a tougher proposition. His only loss came against former cruiserweight titlist Steve ‘USS’ Cunningham, who he managed to drop in the fifth round, ultimately losing on a doctor’s stoppage. Unlike Dawejko, who maintains a relatively busy schedule, Visinia has fought just once in 2015, taking a KO4 victory over .500 fighter Joshua Clark (2-3-2, 2KOs) of Kentucky. A loss for either man and their heavyweight title dreams will be, all but officially, kaput.
