Canadian super welterweight Mikael Zewski (35-2, 23 KOs) wanted a tough challenge for his first professional boxing fight in his region of Mauricie and his wish will be granted.
For the first appearance in his 11-year career, at a boxing event in his hometown, the Trois-Rivieres boxer will face WBC # 9 contender and powerful slugger Serhii Bohachuck (20-1, 20 KOs), of Vinitza, Ukraine, in the 10-round main event.
Colisee Videotron in Trois-Rivieres will host its very first professional boxing event on Friday, March 25, starting at 7 p.m. This event is presented by Mise-O-Jeu, and a Groupe Yvon Michel co-promotion with Probellum in collaboration with Deacon Sports and Entertainment Ltd.
“We are proud to present this international boxing gala in Trois-Rivières, which has become a reality thanks to the invaluable collaboration of Mark Weightman, president and CEO of the Trois-Rivières Lions. There is no doubt for us that Mikael Zewski belongs among the world elite of his division, and he will have the opportunity to demonstrate it to everyone on March 25," said Yvon Michel, President of GYM.
Also featured will be the popular welterweight Sebastien Bouchard (19-2, 8 KOs) from Baie-Saint-Paul, charismatic welterweight Marie-Pier Houle (4-0-1, 2 KOs) from Cap-de-la-Madeleine, skillful heavyweight Alexis Barriere (4-0, 3 KOs), of St-Jean-sur-Richelieu, and several other boxers in important fights for the advancement of their careers.
For Mikael, it is a dream come true: "I have been a professional since 2010 and since my very beginnings, I have wanted to box in front of my own people, my family and my friends. I know the challenge is important and that my opponent is dangerous, but I will be inspired and motivated like never before!” declared the sympathetic athlete.
