Berto vs Zaveck: DiBella on The Rumors, Bailey Shot

By Rick Reeno

BoxingScene.com spoke with promoter Lou DiBella about the overseas rumors of a welterweight clash between IBF champion welterweight Jan Zaveck (31-1, 18 KOs) and former WBC welterweight champion Andre Berto (27-1, 21 KOs). DiBella, who promotes Berto, also promotes Zaveck's mandatory challenger Randall Bailey (41-7, 36 KOs).

DiBella refused to comment on whether or not a Berto-Zaveck fight was being discussed , but obviously there are ongoing discussions with Zaveck's side about a Bailey clash.

"It's obvious that I'm talking with Zaveck's people because I promote Randall Bailey and he's the mandatory," DiBella told BoxingScene.com. "Did Berto's name come up during a conversation? Berto possibly came up, but a lot of things would have to be satisfied for something like that to happen."

The IBF does not allow "step aside" deals, so in order to make a Berto-Zaveck even possible, the champion would have to make a request to the IBF for an exception. The IBF would then have to approve the champion's request. And, it's unlikely that Bailey would okay the exception without an agreement to remain as the mandatory with a guaranteed shot at the winner.

You guys know I'm pumped, and that I've got some info: Zavec is fighting in June or early July; He's already started his camp. If Bailey's ready, this would be the ideal time for Zavec to fullfill his obligation so the fight with Berto can be made for the fall.

[QUOTE=Corelone]Where does it say anything about "Bailey shot"? Is it about his title shot, or his skills are shot? At this stage of his career, all the young lions want to give him a shot. He's no longer a hot shot. He shot his bolt. He has no shot. Shot how?[/QUOTE] bailey is the IBF mandato...
