Somers Point middleweight Patrick Majewski (21-1, 13 KOs) will be going to Denmark to challenge Danish prospect Patrick Nielson (19-0, 9 KOs) for the WBA Inter-Continental crown.

Majewski, a native of Poland, was originally in line to fight Mexico's Marco Antonio Rubio (54-6-1, 46 KOs) for the WBC interim world title in Mexico on July 27, but negotiations fell apart. Instead, he'll be fighting Nielson at Arena Nord in Frederikshavn, Denmark.

Boxing comes back to Atlantic City on Aug. 17 when Revel Casino-Hotel hosts its first-ever professional boxing show. The card features a pair of world title fights that will be televised on HBO Championship Boxing.

In MMA news, Bellator will be coming back to Atlantic City in November.

The Chicago-based mixed martial arts organization will be staging its second card of the year at Revel Casino-Hotel on Nov. 15. Bellator, which is considered the second-best MMA company behind UFC, also held a show at Revel's Ovation Hall on April 4 after a stint at Caesars Atlantic City.

Tickets go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. through Ticketmaster. Prices have not yet been announced.

Point Pleasant MMA veteran Kurt Pellegrino (16-7) will headline the show, which will be televised on Spike TV. Pellegrino, 34, will end a two-year layoff when he faces Saul Almeida (12-4) in a lightweight (155 pounds) bout. Forked River middleweight Tom DeBlass (8-2) will be in the co-feature against an opponent to be named. Bellator will also have the finals of its welterweight (165) and featherweight (145) division tournaments.

"I've been in retirement for the last two years, but I've been in the gym every day since and the competitive fire has still been burning inside of me," Pellegrino said Monday in a statement. "Every morning I wake up I realize I had the same dream as the night before, and it's to go out the way I want. With Bellator back in Atlantic City, this is my opportunity to end my nightmare and go out the way I want, the way I deserve."

Bellator will be the second MMA organization to stage a show at Revel this year. Las Vegas-based World Series of Fighting returns on Sept. 15 with a card on NBC Sports Network.
