Coming on the heels of a fourth-round knockout in his Parx Casino® debut (September 1, 2022), Philadelphia fighter Joey Dawejko (22-10-4, 13 KOs) is set to enter the ring in an eight-round bout against Terrell Jamal Woods (28-53-9, 20 KOs) of Forrest City, AR at Parx Casino® on Friday, October 7.
Dawejko was semi-retired and started a roofing company, but he still had the itch to fight. On September 1, his left hook was looking great, and it looked like vintage Joey Dawejko. Not having to work long hours as a roofer has Dawejko looking rejuvenated for another heavyweight run. Dawejko has great hands and is a fighter at heart.
