Jan Zaveck Knocks Paul Delgado Out To Retain IBF Belt

At the Sportpark Arena in Ljubljana, Slovenia, Jan Zaveck (31-1, 18KOs) retained the IBF welterweight title with a fifth round knockout of overmatched American challenger Paul Delgado (25-10, 4KOs). Delgado went down twice in the second round. It was the third defense of the title for Zaveck, who hopes to land a much bigger fight in his next ring outing and prefers for that fight to happen in the United States. Prior to this loss, Delgado was riding a five fight win streak.
