On Saturday night, January 25th, Heavyweight Derric Rossy will look to get back in the thick of the Heavyweight discussion when he takes on former world amateur champion Joey Dawejko in a scheduled eight round bout at the Golden Nugget in Atlantic City.
Rossy of Medford, New York has a record of 28-7 with 14 knockouts and will be looking to get back in the ring after the postponement of a bout on December 14 that constituted a seven month layoff.
“I am finally anxious to get back in the ring,” said Rossy. “I took two or three days off. We didn’t push anything, we just maintained through the postponement and then got good work.”
Rossy knows that Dawejko (8-3-2, 3 KO’s) will be coming for a tough fight.
“He is a real tough kid and I know he wont be laying down. He can fight. I just have to get in there, work hard and prepare for his best.”
Despite seven losses, Rossy believes he still can be a major factor in the Heavyweight division.
“I know I have some losses. We just have to move on. It’s a clean slate and thoughts of past fights are gone. I think big things and I have a real confidence. I just want to display what I have been working on It will show in the fight and I feel big things coming this year. You will see what a future Heavyweight champion will look like.”
