If he takes it right to Zavek, I think he wins easily & by KO. But again, I'm basing this on very little knowledge of Zavek.
Good observation. I think this is important because, even if Thurman doesn't have explosive punches, he hurts the shit out of guys with them. I think he just breaks down nearly anyone who is his size or smaller.

This is a great fight. I dont know how much Zaveck has got left, but it's Thurman's time.

Haymon will pay him(Zav) a nice retirement check though.

Imo, Zavek is certainly no better than Quintana.
Dejan is certainly better than the current version of Quintana. '06 Quintana is another story.

I guess we will just have to see...

I see nothing in his resume that makes him worth rating.

His resume doesn't do him justice. Check out his fights with Jackiewicz and Hlatshwayo.

Plus the Berto fight.

He has heart, heavy hands, and appears to be iron.

Ranked contender no1 at WBO (int. champ) and no 2 at IBF he still is ranked very high. Also he never been on canvas in his career...what Berto did to him was due to headbuts. Was leading the fight in punches landed before the stop. He is the guy that can box 12 rounds on high pace..was fighting one fight last year due to injury but plan for 2013 is title fight! So he sure will come to USA to win. IMO he will outwork the unexperianced Thurman.

I hope Thurman gets the fight he wanted...but IMO this is not a good pick for him. He has not faced yet a fighter of Zavecks caliber. Zaveck has superb stamina and is a verry skilled boxer. He will push the pace of the fight to the limit. I am also verry intrested what will happen when Thurman gets hit hard?!? If the fight happens it will definetly be a great fight. My prediction is Zaveck wins bi tko in the late rounds.

Looks like it's on. Dan Rafael says the contracts are being finalized and this will be the co-feature to Cloud-Hopkins on March 9th. The winner of this fight becomes mandatory for Tim Bradley.
