Egidijus Kavaliauskas (21-1-1 faces Mikael Zewski (34-1) in the Bubble in MGM Grand in a 10 round main event. Kavaliauskas started stepping up his opposition in his last five fights where he beat David Avanesyan, Roberto Arriaza and Juan Carlos Abreau. He then struggled badly against Ray Robinson in a fight he was supposed to win and had to settle for a draw. Most people at ringside thought Robinson had edged it. In the fight after that he fought Terence Crawford and some moments in the fight but he was worn down and stopped after taking a lot of punishment in the fight. Zewski is rather unknown to most boxing fans as he has fought most of his fights in Canada. He has a nice record of 34-1 but he hasn´t faced many good fighters.
