Jan Zaveck: Andre Berto's Title Plan Won't Come True

By Ruslan Chikov

The welterweight champion of the International Boxing Federation [IBF], Jan Zaveck (31-1, 18 KOs), is focused on derailing Andre Berto (27-1, 21 KOs) for a second time. Zaveck will fight for the first time in the United States on September 3, facing Berto in an HBO televised main event. It will be Berto's first fight since losing his undefeated record, and his WBC title, to Victor Ortiz in April.

Zaveck told German writer Mark Bergmann that Berto is certainly deserving of the upcoming opportunity to fight for a world title, but he also vowed to crush Berto's plan to rebound from his loss to Ortiz by winning a new title.

"My only strategy is to win this fight. Nothing else to say here... It’s too early to speak about tactics, etc. I think it is right for him to get a chance to fight for the IBF world championship. But I will make sure that his plans won’t come true. I guess this fight needed to happen [for me] get attention in the United States. I guess the fight was meant to be," Zaveck said.

"I’m satisfied and I feel comfortable at SES Boxing. The development of my career also shows that the decisions we’re taking over here are the right ones. Hopefully everything ends like we wish and expect also in the future."

[QUOTE=giacomino]Don't know why so many people say Berto is overrated since most posters piss on him and few talk like he is a superstar. He was gifted a title belt - like a lot of "champions" today, but I don't think his title defense competition has been that bad. I like what I see in Zaveck...

If Berto BOX and uses his SPEED ADVANTAGE, he WINS BIG and IMPRESSIVELY, if he gets caught up trying to SLUG IT OUT YET AGAIN the I think Jan can break him down like Ortiz did Decent Welterweight Fight but I expect Berto to come out and look to IMPRESS after losing to Ortiz

I'll bet 5 million points that Berto will beat this Slavic Euro superman. Any takers?

Zaveck is good fighter but I dont know if he is world class yet, this fight will show us IMO, his best 2 fights were against Rafal Jackiewicz which were 2 great close fights. I would have liked to see Jan fight higher quality opponents in Germany/UK/USA. This is definitely a big step-up in Bert...

i have to give props to zavec for taking such an opponent for his US debut. many others boxers started with easier opponents to test the grounds. i really been wondering how the US public will react. here in slovenia he's always fought in a full house. recently before over 12,000. i've been wonde...
