Atlantic City welterweight Anthony Young (9-0, 4 KOs) remained unbeaten with a four-round, unanimous decision over James Harrison (3-4-1, 1 KO), of Marrero, La., Friday night at the Robert Treat Hotel in Newark.
Young's preparation for the bout included three weeks of sparring with WBC/WBA junior-welterweight champion Danny Garcia (26-0, 16 KOs). Garcia, from Philadelphia, is facing Lucas Matthysse (34-2, 32 KOs) tonight at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas on the Floyd Mayweather-Canelo Alvarez card.
Matthysse earned the title shot with a third-round TKO over Lamont Peterson at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City on May 18. There was a possibility that Garcia-Matthysse would also be held at Boardwalk Hall, but the venue was unavailable because of Miss America.
Young is scheduled to fight again on Oct. 19 on a card tentatively scheduled for Resorts Hotel Casino, according to his trainer, Ray McCline.
Somers Point middleweight Patrick Majewski (21-2, 13 KOs) suffered his second defeat last weekend when he dropped a 12-round, unanimous decision to Denmark's Patrick Nielson (20-0, 9 KOs) in Frederikshavn, Denmark. All three judges scored the fight 119-108 for Nielson, which translates to an 11-1 edge in rounds. The bout was for the WBA and WBO intercontinental titles.
Boxing returns to Atlantic City on Sept. 28 when Passaic junior-middleweight Glen Tapia (19-0, 11 KOs) faces Colorado's Elco Garcia (27-8, 13 KOs) at Bally's Atlantic City. Millville junior-middleweight Thomas LaManna (12-0, 7 KOs) is scheduled to be on the card.
