Who has Zaveck beaten that you rate him so high? It's all conjecture for both of them. Both guys have beaten a couple of fringe top 10 guys (Jackiewicz and Hlathswayo for Zaveck, Gonzalez and Rivera for Collazo). Collazo has at least fought against higher level competition, whereas Zaveck hasn't.
If you think Zaveck is better, tell me why. I think Collazo is better because he's quicker, has better defense, is a southpaw, has a tricky style and is more seasoned against top competition (and while I can't confirm, he probably has a pretty decent reach advantage as well). Zaveck has the edge on power (though not a huge one - it took him 12 rounds to take out Miranda, who has multiple KO1 losses on his record) and doesn't gas out as much. Both guys have shown a lot of heart.
