Top welterweight prospect Mikael Zewski will face veteran John Hoffman in a scheduled four round bout in his Canadian debut Friday night, May 28th, at the Pepsi Coliseum in Quebec City.
The Zewski/Hoffman scheduled four rounder is one of the featured undercard bouts on the ESPN2 televised, highly anticipated showdown between legendary Quebec former world champion Eric Lucas and perennial contender Librado Andrade.
Since turning professional earlier this year after an outstanding amateur career, Zewski, 3-0-0 (2KO’s), has quickly impressed fight fans in the United States with his devastating power, winning his first two bouts in stunning knockout fashion, both of which were televised on Canada’s “Super Channel”.
In his most recent bout on May 1st, the 21 year old Trois-Rivières, Quebec native dominated Alex DeLeon, sweeping the judges scorecards in the four round battle held in Iowa City, Iowa.
“I was back in the gym right after the DeLeon fight to prepare for this bout. There’s been a great deal of media attention for the main event and I’m very excited and honored to be fighting on the same card as Eric Lucas” said Zewski.
“Lucas is very popular here and they’re expecting a crowd of over 10,000 which will be a terrific experience to fight in front of. We also have a very large group coming down from Trois-Rivières for the fight.”
The Zewski/Hoffman bout is presented by Interbox in association with TKO Boxing Promotions.
