Zewski Forced To Take Six Weeks Rest

By Daniel Cloutier

MONTRÉAL - The welterweight Michael Zewski fractured his right-hand thumb in his win by TKO in the 10th round over the Mexican Alejandro Davila (19-1-2) November 23rd in the ring of the Videotron Centre in Québec City. IBF and NABO North American champion (147 pounds), Zewski, a fighter from Trois-Rivières, Québec, will be obliged to take a rest of six weeks before getting back in training. A few days after this boxing show, Zewski took X-rays in a Trois-Rivières Hospital, and it proved that his right thumb was fractured.

As soon he heals Zewski will be back in training, because he really hopes to get an opportunity to fight for a world title next year. Zewski (34-1-0) was ranked WBO eight contender before this important win over Davila, but he will certainly improve his situation in the ratings in the next weeks.

The fight was close after five rounds, but in the second half of this bout, Zewski provoked two knockdowns, and right after the second knockdown, the referee intervened to declare Davila TKO. It was clear for the referee that Davila was seriously hurt.

Zewski wants to see his name in the Top five of the pro boxing international ratings. He has a very good chance to reach his objective before the end of the year.
