Jan Zaveck Calls Out New Welterweight Titlist Malignaggi

Former IBF welterweight champ Jan Zaveck has called out newly crowned WBA 147-pound beltholder Paulie Malignaggi.

"Paulie, respect for the fight!  Do you have enough courage to take me for your next opponent?" Zaveck asked via Twitter.

Last Sunday in Ukraine, Malignaggi (31-4, 7 KOs) outclassed incumbent Vyacheslav Senchenko, stopping him in the ninth round for his second world title in two weight classes.  Since moving up to welterweight, the Brooklyn-based stylist has gone 4-0 and enjoyed a career renaissance.

One fighter looking for some semblance of a rebirth is Zaveck (32-2, 18 KOs).  The 36-year-old Slovenian gave a game effort in his American TV debut last year against Andre Berto where he was stopped on cuts in the fifth frame.

Zaveck has since defeated Bethel Ushona by unanimous decision two months ago, but would undoubtedly relish the opportunity to get back in the welterweight picture by landing a fight with Malignaggi.

Zaveck informed BoxingScene.com that he would have no problem returning to America for the opportunity to challenge "The Magic Man."

[QUOTE=Leohappy]zaveck is not even rated top15 ww by the WBA, so even as a voluntary defense it would be difficult to make. but why not give paul some attention ... since he's tweeting so much anyway.[/QUOTE] WTF... i need to see these rankings. [url]http://wbanews.com/artman/uploads/1/WBA_...

zaveck is not even rated top15 ww by the WBA, so even as a voluntary defense it would be difficult to make. but why not give paul some attention ... since he's tweeting so much anyway.

I like the fight. Zaveck showed he has some skill in the Berto fight.

Not a bad fight, if it gets made. Although I'd like to see Zaveck earn it in a fight state side against Devon Alexander or someone else already in contention for the title.
