Mikael Zewski Stops Martin Escobar at the Montreal Casino

By Francisco Salazar

Fringe welterweight contender Mikael Zewski stopped Martin Escobar Thursday night at the Montreal Casino in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.

Zewski (29-1, 22 knockouts), who resides in Trois-Rivieres, Quebec, battered Escobar until referee Yvon Goulet stopped the bout at 2:34 of the second round.

The 28-year-old Zewski, who signed a one-year promotional contract with Yvon Michel in early September, has won his last three bouts since suffering his only loss of his career to Konstantin Ponomarev in May of 2015.
