Default Re: Jan Zaveck (IBF champ) next fight?

That said, if Berto-Aydin wasn't approved by HBO, I doubt they'd approve Berto-Zaveck, since Zaveck has even less name recognition than Aydin. His best opportunities might be Joshua Clottey (sticking the fight on a Top Rank PPV undercard) or Kell Brook (Frank ****** might pay him well to come to the UK so Brook can win a title). And I'd actually fancy Zaveck's chances against Brook, if they go that route.
Before Jackiewicz fight there was a lot of talking that who wins will fight against Randall Bailey (but that name i didnt catch nowhere right now in media)...after that fight Omotoso said he wants to be next opponent of Zaveck...but Zaveck said he wants someone from top 5 in ratings and since Berto, Mosley and Williams`s mangers arrive to UK must be something on it...
