Clear Domination For Zewski

By Daniel Cloutier

TORONTO - Very determined, Mikael Zewski won what he was considering as the most important and significant fight of his pro boxing career. Saturday evening in the ring of the Air Canada Centre in Toronto, Zewski captured the WBC super welterweight international championship, with a win by unanimous decision over the Argentinian Diego Gonzalo Luque, a former Latino’s champion.

Zewski was the master of the ring from the beginning to the end of this 10 rounds bout. Zewski controlled the action in the first round with his jabs and hooks. In the second round, Zewski sent Luque on the floor with a solid shot to the head.

In the third round, again, Zewski used brilliantly his jabs and hooks. In the fourth, fifth, sixth and seventh rounds, Zewsky used intelligently his jabs to prepare his power punches. He connected several power shots in each of these four rounds.

The fight was stopped for few minutes in the eighth round, because a fight started between spectators sitting close to the Zewsky’s corner. Apparently, one of the spectator tried to enter in the ring, and the other one jumped on him.

In the 10th and last round, Luque attacked desperately, but he gave to Zewski opportunities to connected several solid punches.

The judges scored the bout 100-89, 99-90 and 99-90.

“No doubt, I was deserving the win, because I controlled the action from the first to the 10th round,” said Zewski. “I was the aggressor in each round. And I fought with discipline and concentration. It’s certainly the most important win of my pro boxing career, because this title will open me the door for the Top 10 or the Top 15 of the WBC ratings.”
