Berto-Zaveck, Manfredo-Vera Doubleheader in The Works

By Rick Reeno

BoxingScene.com had been advised that Andre Berto's potential fight with IBF welterweight champion Jan Zaveck (31-1, 18KOs) has already been submitted to the IBF for approval. Berto (27-1, 21KOs) vs. Zaveck is going to take place no later than mid-October. If the fight happens in August, depending on the availability of a television date, one potential undercard fight being discussed is a middleweight bout between Peter Manfredo Jr. (37-6, 20KOs) and Brian Vera (18-5, 11KOs). Vera would return from his February upset win over former champion Sergio Mora. Another boxer likely to appear on the undercard is welterweight contender Randall Bailey, who happens to be the mandatory challenger to Zaveck. Bailey is willing to step aside with the guarantee that he's going to face the Berto-Zaveck winner next.
