Patrick Majewski suffers 1st loss

Somers Point middleweight Patrick Majewski suffered his first loss Saturday night.

Majewski (17-1, 11 KOs) endured a sixth-round TKO against Miguel Angel Torres (23-5, 20 KOs) in a scheduled 10-round bout at Mohegan Sun Casino, in Uncasville, Conn.  reported on its web site that referee Arthur Mercante, Jr. stopped the bout at one minute, 13 seconds of the sixth after Torres sent Majewski to the canvas with a left and right hook.

Majewski, a native of Radom, Poland who moved to the Atlantic City area in 2003, entered the fight ranked No. 7 by the World Boxing Organization. He lost his NABO regional title to Torres, who also captured the vacant NABF crown.

Majewski, 31, was supposed to fight Dionisio Miranda (21-7-2, 18 KOs) Saturday night, but Mirando could not obtain a visa from his native Colombia and was forced to withdraw two weeks ago.
