Oosthuizen vs Pryor Jr. is Possible For Berto-Zaveck
by Mike Coppinger
Sources have advised BoxingScene.com that South African super middleweight prospect Thomas Oosthuizen will make his American debut on Sept. 3 on the undercard of Andre Berto-Jan Zaveck from Biloxi, Miss., likely against Aaron Pryor Jr. Oosthuizen (15-0-1, 11 KOs) is a highly-regarded prospect, a rangy southpaw at 6'4" with good pop. His likely opponent Pryor Jr. (16-3, 11 KOs) would represent by far the sternest test of his career, coming off a big win against Librado Andrade in May.
