By Per Ake Persson

Media in Slovenia have issued reports that the opponent for IBF welterweight champ Jan Zaveck, 30-1-1, on February 18 in Ljubljana will be American Paul Delgado, 25-9-1. Delgado has compiled five straight wins during 2010 but isn´t included in the IBF's December 2010 ratings. It´s the third defence by Zaveck of the title he won in December 2009. Delgado has lost every time that he managed to step up in competition, including defeats to JoJo Dan, Vitaliy Demyanenko Demetrius Hopkins and Said Ouali.
