By: Ken Hissner
The MGM National Harbor, Oxon Hill, MD, will be back in action tonight via Sho Box. Popular Philly heavyweight Joey “The Tank” Dawejko, 17-4-3 (10), will have his first fight in 2017 when he takes on Rodney Hernandez, 10-5-1 (2), of Modesto, CA, who has never been stopped. In his two of his losses he has gone the distance with China’s 6:06 giant and Olympic Medalist Zhilei Zhang, 14-0 (10) and Poland’s power punching Adam Kownacki, 15-0 (12).
Dawejko has scored seven stoppages in the first round of his ten stoppages. He has that “Philly left hook” that “Smokin Joe Frazier made famous out of Philly”.
Dawejko had a very successful amateur career and is considered a “Giant Killer” at 5:10 and two-hundred fifty-five in his last bout in December.
Dawejko is managed by Marc Cipparone’s Club 1957 Management out of South Philly. It will be scheduled for 8 rounds but don’t be surprised if the “Tank” ends it early!
