On Saturday December 4th, Wildwood, New Jersey’s, Chuck “The Professor” Mussachio (16-1-2, 5KO’s) returns to action in Atlantic City when he takes on Theo Kruger in an eight round light heavyweight contest at the Grand Ballroom in Bally’s. The show, promoted by Star Boxing, is headlined by a battle for the vacant IBA Welterweight Championship, between Atlantic City’s own, Shamone “The Truth” Alvarez (21-2, 12KO’s) and Ghana’s Ayi Bruce (17-3, 12KO’s).
Mussachio is coming off an impressive showing in his last fight in June, when he defeated defending and previously undefeated WBF US Light Heavyweight Champion Anthony Ferrante. Mussachio is currently riding a three fight win streak since suffering his first pro defeat, a decision loss against Tommy Karpency for the WBA Fedecentro Light Heavyweight Title in August of last year.
“Chuck has boxed on a few of our shows, and he puts on great fights, and packs the house with fans from all over New Jersey,” stated Joe DeGuardia, CEO and President of Star Boxing. “Chuck reminds me of a 1950’s fighter, with an exciting style and who even has a throwback look. For those who haven’t seen Chuck fight, he usually enters the ring to Frank Sinatra, or music similar to that genre playing, and he wears one of those old-school gangster hats. With all the attention HBO’s new acclaimed series, “Boardwalk Empire” is getting, I felt it was only fitting to have Chuck on the Atlantic City card on December 4th.”
