InterBox and TKO Boxing Promotions have confirmed that top welterweight prospect Mikael Zewski will mark his Canadian professional debut on Friday, May 28th as he returns to his home province to battle at the Pepsi Coliseum in Quebec City.
The 21 year old native of Trois-Rivières, Quebec, will be the featured undercard bout to the highly anticipated showdown between legendary Quebec former world champion Eric Lucas and perennial contender Librado Andrade. The rest of the undercard will be stacked with Quebec City boxers Pier-Olivier Côté, Eric Martel and also Benoit Gaudet from Drummondville, Québec.
“I’m very excited to be fighting in Quebec City on May 28th on the same card as Eric Lucas. He is a hero to many people in Quebec and for many years I have watched and admired him and truly look forward to fighting on the same card as him.” said Zewski.
This past Thursday night, March 25th, Zewski stayed perfect in his young professional career stopping Mexico’s Moses Alvizo as part of FIGHT NIGHT AT THE COMMERCE 2 in Los Angeles, California. With devastating power from both hands doing damage throughout the first two rounds, Zewski earned the stoppage when Alvizo elected not to return for the third stanza.
Impressing the huge broadcast audience on Canada’s “Super Channel” along with the packed house at the Commerce Casino, Zewski improved to 2-0-0, both wins coming by knockout.
Continued Zewski, “I’m much more comfortable fighting as a professional than as an amateur as I believe it suits my style much better, hopefully the knockouts will keep coming.”
Said Chet Koerner, President of TKO Boxing Promotions, “Mikael is one of the fastest rising stars in boxing. The fans in Los Angeles were just stunned by his punching power and the audiences watching on “Super Channel” have gotten an opportunity to watch one of the best prospects in the sport.
“Mikael brings an electricity to the ring that the fans at the Pepsi Coliseum will be thrilled to be a part of.”
Further details about Zewski’s bout will be announced shortly.
