It wasn't the kind of night that Mikael Zewski (35-3, 23 KOs) wanted, but he was battered and stopped in nine rounds by Mexico's Carlos Ocampo (33-1, 20 KOs).

The junior middleweight clash, which had the vacant WBC Continental Americas title at stake, took place at Colisee in Trois-Rivières, Quebec, Canada.

Zewski was dropped in the third round and then again in the ninth, which forced his corner to pull him from the fight.

When the contest began, there was a feeling out process before the punches began to fly in the second round.

Ocampo was controlling the action with the harder and more accurate shots. During the third, he dropped Zewski with a hard left hook. Zewski beat the count and never stopped trying to change the tide.

But, Ocampo never lost control, administered punishment and decked Zewski hard for a second time in the ninth with a right hand to the jaw. This time around, Zewski's corner threw in the towel to stop the contest.

Two fights ago, Zewski was up on the cards when he was stopped by dangerous welterweight contender Egidijus Kavaliauskas.

For his part, Ocampo has now won 11 in a row since suffering a first round knockout loss to welterweight champion Errol Spence in June of 2018.

Also on the card, Marie-Pier Houle (6-0-1, 2 KOs) defeated Valentina Keri (5-6-0, 0 KO) by unanimous decision.

The judges gave cards of 60-54, 59-55 and 60-54.

Sebastien Bouchard (19-2-1, 8 KOs) failed to get the verdict he wanted. After a slow start in the first half of the fight, he finally got going around the sixth - but ultimately fought Mexico's Ricardo Lara (22-9-1, 10 KOs) to a ten round split draw.

The scores were 95-95, 93-97 Lara and 96-94 Bouchard.

It was Bouchard's second fight since suffering serious biceps injuries in 2019.
