DAWEJKO TRYING TO REBOUND FROM LOSS
Press Release: Coming off a split-decision loss to Dorsett Barnwell, Philadelphia heavyweight Joey Dawejko (7-1-1) will face Jarrell Miller on January 19th at the Mohegan Sun Casino in Connecticut. For Dawejko, this will be his second consecutive bout against an undefeated fighter (Barnwell is 6-0). Labeled a small heavyweight, Dawejko stands 5'10" and uses a crafty style that complements smaller stature and his ability to be more agile than his usually bigger opponents. Miller (4-0) has won all of his pro bouts by TKO. "Some people take a loss but that isn't what defines a fighter, what defines a fighter is how he responds from the adversity he's faced with," Dawejko said. "I'm just anxious to prove what kind of fighter I am and to show my ability as a heavyweight. I feel like I can bring something to the division that's my very own and no one else's. I make it a point to try and get the most out of my in-ring experiences and I plan on giving a good performance on January 19th."
