Stevens, Majewski Make Weight, Ready For Fight Night

By Jake Donovan

Curtis Stevens and Patrick Majewski both made weight for their scheduled 10-round middleweight bout Friday evening at Resorts International in Atlantic City, New Jersey.

Stevens (25-4, 18KO) came in at a thickly muscled 160.5 lb. for his ring return, coming just 11 weeks following a knockout loss to unbeaten middleweight titlist Gennady Golovkin.

Majewski (21-2, 13KO) was slightly heavier, though far leaner given his considerable height advantage, tipping the scales at 161.5 lb. The bout marks his first ring appearance since a points loss to Patrick Nielsen on the road in Denmark last September.

The middleweight attraction serves as the headlining act for the 2014 season premiere of NBC Sports Network Fight Night series, airing live at 10:00PM ET.

In the televised co-feature, Thabiso Mchunu faces Olanrewaju Durodola in a scheduled 10-round cruiserweight bout.

Mchunu (14-1, 10KO) rose to fame on this very series with an upset win over Eddie Chambers last August. The bout was his first outside of his native South Africa, with Friday's affair marking his second straight stateside appearance. The southpaw came in at a chiseled 199.5 lb. for what he hopes will become his fifth straight win.

Durodola (17-1, 16KO), a Nigerian transplant now fighting out of Kansas City, checked in at a lean and ready 197.5 lb. The bout marks the first televised appearance for Durodola, who enjoys a massive six-inch height advantage over the 5'8" Mchunu.

I have seen Mchunu just once against Chambers and im looking forward to see him again. Stevens vs. Majewski is also an interesting B-Level bout.

He is short but he has quite good reach.
