Jan Zaveck Hopes Delgado Win Leads To America

By Raphael Kyc

The IBF welterweight world champion, Jan Zaveck (30-1, 17 KOs), is preparing the third defense of his title on February 18 at Sportpark Arena in Ljubljana, Slovenia, against Paul Delgado (25-9-1, 4 KO) of America. Zaveck hopes that the fight against the American might be his ticket to a career in the United States. Zaveck wants to face the big names in the welterweight division. He is taking the fight with Delgado very seriously.

"The encounter with Delgado will make the fans across the ocean hear my name, so this battle is very important to me. If I want to think about fights with boxers such as [Floyd] Mayweather or [Shane] Mosley, I have to show my class in the next battle," said Zaveck, who in his last battle he defeated Rafal Jackiewicz on points.

[quote=Freedom!;10067780]Zaveck should fight Berto on HBO. But Berto doesn't accept challenges from welterweights, only junior welterweights. And Greenburg would try to have Jan fight someone he's more likely to lose to, such as a boxer at 160 or 154 like…

It won't really get him much attention in the states but he is a good fighter and him vs Berto isn't as easy if at all a win for Berto as many would think.

Delgado win leads to nothing. Nobody in America will take notice. Zaveck should look to fight a guy like Malignaggi (who will want this fight) to make a start at getting noticed in America. Saul Alvarez would be a fight…
