“All the fights are very important for me, but it’s crucial for me to maintain this winning sequence,” said Zewski Wednesday afternoon at the weight in held at the Montréal Casino. “My goal is to be ranked in the Top 5 of the international ratings before the end of the year. To reach this objective, I got to be the winner each time I am showing in the ring.”

Zewski saw Macias in action few times. “Yes, I saw him in action, and I know this guy is coming in Montréal with the serious intention to fight with rage and try to surprise me,” said Zewski. “He is always very intense and solid on legs. I won’t try to score a KO against this warrior. I want to use my skills and my experience to dominate the rounds and get out of the ring in the winning shoes. It will be important for me to fight with concentration and discipline from the beginning to the end of this fight. For sure, I got to fight and beat good opponents to take back my place in the international ratings, and more, reach the Top 5 of the international ratings.”
