Tank Dawejko rolls over Madison

In a rematch, heavyweight Joey “The Tank” Dawejko (26-10-4, 14 KOs) made it 2-0 against Colby Madison (11-6-2, 7 KOs) on Friday night at the Event Center at Live! Casino & Hotel Philadelphia. Dawejko stalked the 40-year-old Madison the whole fight, landing heavy shots in every round. In round eight, Dawejko was credited with a knockdown when he blasted Madison into the ropes, he then dropped Madison again with moments left. Joey won a more competitive six round unanimous decision over Madison in May. This was a one-sided affair.

  • Joey Dawejko has now won five in a row. Time to step it up and land a major opponent.

  • Joey has talent for sure. His pace in the ring reminds me more of a nice walk in the sunshine than an intense fight.

    It would be interesting to see him fully trained, with the best possible sparring, over at least a year. I’m curious to see how far his potential and talent could take him.

    Maybe top 20? I have a hard time imagining a top 10.

    • Joey never will win a best-body award. He is this century’s version of “Two Ton” Tony Galento, who had Joe Louis on the floor in their 1939 world title fight. Joey actually came in 15 pounds lighter for last night’s fight than he did the first time he fought Colby Madison in May.

  • I wish Joey the best and that he hooks up with a great team. Isn’t he the one who broke Joshua’s confidence in sparring? If he can do that, sparring or not, he can definitely rise through the ranks. How far, I’m not sure, but enough to secure a future.

  • Only rolls I seen were them Jelly Rolls when he was breathing heavy around the ring.
