Sadam Ali Returns on June 2; Yorgey vs Davis on May 19

Atlantic City, NJ—Harry Joe Yorgey, trying to return to the national spotlight, and Jamaal Davis, hoping to get there for the first time, collide in a scheduled 10-round junior middleweight contest on Saturday evening, May 19, in the Grand Ballroom of Bally’s Atlantic City.

Yorgey (left), 34, of Bridgeport, PA, ended a one-year layoff Feb. 11 when he out-pointed Lawrence Jones, of Washington, DC, over six rounds in Fairfax, VA.

That was only Yorgey’s second fight since his knockout loss to world-rated Alfredo Angulo, of Mexico, on Nov. 7, 2009, in Hartford, CT.

In his other comeback fight, on Feb. 25, 2011, Yorgey stopped Donovan Castaneda, of Kansas City, MO, in five rounds in Tulsa, OK.

A pro since 2002, Yorgey is 24-1-1, 11 K0s.  His signature win came when he knocked out Ronald Hearns, of Detroit, MI, on March 28, 2009, in Miami, OK.  He also has beaten Jason LeHoullier, of Nottingham, NH

Davis, 30, has had chances to crack the world rankings but has come up short each time.  He hopes to re-write that history against Yorgey.

 A pro since 2003, Davis (right) is only 12-8-1, 6 K0s, but has fought better opposition than has Yorgey.

Davis (right)  has lost to world-rated fighters such as Gabriel Rosado, of Philadelphia, PA; Joel Julio, of Colombia; Peter Quillen, of New York.

His 2011 loss to Rosado, in which he was stopped in the 12th and final round, was a see-saw affair at the time and one of the best fights at Bally’s Atlantic City in recent years.

In his last fight July 15 at Bally’s, Davis was held to a six-round draw by Eberto Medina, of Newark, NJ.

Davis has beaten Josh Onyango, of Trenton, NJ; Clarence Taylor, of Wilmington, DE; Mustafah Johnson, of Indianapolis, IN.

Six additional bouts complete the card, including an eight-round light-heavyweight contest featuring Chuck Mussachio, of Wildwood, NJ.
