Thurman vs. Zaveck on The Horizon For March 9th?

By Luke Furman

Several overseas sources are reporting that Jan Zaveck (32-2, 18KOs) is possibly going to return to HBO on March 9th, taking on undefeated welterweight contender Keith Thurman (19-0, 18KOs). The event is taking place at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. Zaveck, a former IBF champion, was stopped by Andre Berto in five rounds in 2011. He fought once in 2012, winning a twelve round decision over Bethuel Ushona. Thurman is being pushed as a rising star. In his last bout, in November, he stopped former champion Carlos Quintana in four rounds.

Not a big fan of Thurman. Not sure if it's even a better fight than Quintana. Meh, whatever.

Solid fight for Thurman as Zaveck is a well tested but limited fighter.
