Wach vs Haggler Full Card Announced For North Bergen

NORTH BERGEN, NJ - The 6′7″ “Polish Giant” Mariusz Wach (23-0, 11 KO) of North Bergen, NJ by way of Krakow, Poland will face his tallest task to date on February 19 when he meets 6′4″ Jonathan Haggler (23-3, 18 KO) of Winston-Salem, NC at Essex County College in Newark, NJ. The show will be promoted by Prize Fight and Global Boxing Promotions and televised by FoxSports and Comcast affiliates throughout the country.

The match, which will be contested for the WBC Baltic Heavyweight title, will headline “Brick City Brawl”.

A press conference to announce the show will take place at Global Boxing Gym today at 1PM, with all of the principle fighters in attendance. Catering will be provided courtesy of the Breadman Caffe'.

Wach, who represented Poland in the 2004 Olympics, is now trained by former three-time heavyweight champion Michael Moorer and will look to cut the hard-hitting southpaw Haggler down to size.

In the co-featured lightweight bout, Danny “Little Mac” McDermott of Jersey City, NJ will face Atlantic City’s Osnel Charles of Atlantic City, NJ. McDermott, 31, holds a record of 8-2 (3 KO) and is coming off New Jersey’s Fight of the Year last year. Charles, 26, with a record of 6-2, is coming off his career best win, a split-decision over Philadelphia, PA favorite Victor Vasquez.

In a four round featherweight matchup, debuting Kamil Laszczyk, 19, of Wroclaw, Poland will face 23-year-old Antonio Parker, 0-2, of Wilson, North Carolina.

Laszczyk won six national championships back home during a 110-7 amateur career. Laszczyk was training previously with Polish super middleweight champion Piotr Wilczewski but will now work with Aroz “Terrific” Gist.

In a four-round super-middleweight bout, Rafael Jastrzebski, 29, of Bydgoszcz, Poland will face 22-year-old Randy Campbell, 3-3 (2 KO) of Bowerston, OH.

Jastrzebski’s record of 3-6-1 (1 KO) is deceiving, as he was the victim of flagrant mismanagement early in his career. Now based in Atlantic City, NJ and trained by Bill Johnson and conditioning coach Sean Sutton, Jastrzebski is getting a second chance.

Newark-based middleweight Eddie Edmonds (1-1-1, 1 KO) will face Charles White (0-1) of Wilson, NC in a four round bout.

Brooklyn-based but London, England-raised lightweight Scotty “Spade Ace” Burrell (1-0, 1 KO) will face Desi Williams (0-1) of Wilson, NC in a four round matchup.

Unbeaten lightweight Wanzell Ellison (3-0, 2 KO) of Newark, NJ will face debuting Jimmy Smalls from Ohio in a four round bout.

Rounding out the card, Newark welterweight Rashad Bogar (2-2, 1 KO) will face unbeaten Miguel Corcino (2-0, 2 KO) of Camden, NJ.
