Tonight at 10:30 p.m. EDT from Biloxi, Mississippi, Andre Berto looks to get back in the winner's circle when he takes on Jan Zaveck. The twelve round welterweight clash will serve as the main-event of tonight's HBO show, with a 10-round featherweight match-up between Gary Russell Jr. and Leonilo Miranda serving as the appetizer.
Here's a quick look at the bout from Dave Oakes & Scott Christ:
Andrew Fruman will be handling round-by-round duties tonight.
Berto should be able to out-box and out-speed Zaveck but I'm not sure whether or not he can stop the hardened Slovenian. I can see Berto winning a lopsided decision after twelve entertaining but one-sided rounds.
I do think Andre will be way too fast for Zaveck, and I sort of envision this looking a bit like Arthur Abraham against Carl Froch. I don't think Zaveck will get stopped, but it wouldn't shock me. I'm looking at Berto by 117-111 type scores and thinking that's a strong bet.
