Zaveck Hopes a Delgado Win Will Lead To Bigger Fights

By Raphael Kyć

This coming Friday, Jan Zaveck (30-1, 17 KOs) will defend his IBF welterweight title against American contender Paul Delgado (25-9-1, 4 KO). During the final press conference, Zaveck discussed his opponent with a level of respect, although it's no secret that he treats the fight as a "springboard" to much bigger things.

"I'm very excited. This fight is extremely important to me because it brings me closer to fighting in America. After the fight with Delgado, all of the boxing experts will write about it. I hope that my style will appeal to American fans," said Zaveck.

I think they should switch it so that zaveck fights hatton for the ibf welter and canelo fights rhodes for the wbc super welter. that would make far more sense! wouldnt it?

Well, at least he seems to be more interested in fighting top opposition in the future than Senchenko seems to be. Hope he fights Bailey, or any at least C level fighter, next.
