On Friday night, in a bout to be televised on tru TV, NABF Welterweight champion Mikael Zewski (26-0, 20), of Quebec, Canada, will put his undefeated record, NABF title and WBC top 10 rating on the line at the Cosmopolitan against undefeated Konstantin Ponomarev (27-0, 13), a former WBC World Youth champion now based in Arizona. This match-up of two undefeated fighters rated in the top 15 by the WBC promises to get the weekend off to an exciting start, and the winner is certain to move closer to title contention.

Jodie Esquibel: Her boxing record shows that she has been in with some good fighters and has fought for the NABF and WBC titles before. She has lost most of her meaningful bouts in boxing but has recently been active in MMA building experience and maintains a respectable professional record of 5-1 according to Sherdog (4 wins by decision and 1 by TKO, her only loss was by a choke submission which means she wasn't outclassed by strikes)
Mayela Perez: While Mayela has lost her last three bouts, two of those bouts were against undefeated fighters who were 16-0 and 11-0, respectively. The other loss was a Majority Decision loss. In the two fights prior to these three fights, she won the WBC Silver title and had a draw with an 8-0 Dorely Valente for the WBC Youth title.
