In Rusty’s Corner

Rusty Rubin is a veteran boxing writer
This Saturday, September 3, in Biloxi, Mississippi, Andre Berto and Jan Zaveck clash for the IBF welterweight title in a match televised on HBO 7공주 mp3 다운로드.

Zaveck, 35, from Slovenia, is not well known in this country and his list of foes is not the ‘Who’s Who’ in the division. That doesn’t mean he can’t fight and can’t score a major upset here 유안타증권 다운로드.

Zaveck boasts a record of 31-1 with 18 of those wins coming via the knockout route. His only loss was via a split decision in November of 2008 다운로드.

Berto, 27, is considered by many as one of the top welterweights in the world and comes into this match at 27-1 with 21 knockouts. His only loss was in his last fight against Victor Ortiz, who, as a result, will be fighting Floyd Mayweather 다운로드. The winner of that fight is likely to fight Manny Pacquiao next.

Berto has fought better known competition; he’s eight years younger than Zaveck and has a ½” edge in height 다운로드.

This looks like an easy win for Berto, but in boxing, nothing is easy. Just because Zaveck hasn’t fought the ‘names’ in boxing doesn’t mean he can’t win in this interesting mach 다운로드.

But, in this case I just don’t see it happening. The younger and seemingly stronger Berto should stop Zaveck somewhere in the middle rounds.

Glove 2 Glove:

Prayers for the soul of former heavyweight tough guy, Scott LeDoux, 63, who succumbed to ALS last week.

Also for the soul of Brett Lally, another tough guy who passed on at age 48.

Prayers are requested for the health of outstanding trainer Joe Sousa, who is fighting the fight of his life against cancer.

Prayers for the complete return to good health to my old friend, promoter, and ex-wrestler Jack ‘Moe’ Smith who had complete reconstructive knee surgery a couple of weeks back. Moe’s a fighter and making a complete recovery.

Please pray for my Aussie mates and Glove2Glove member John MacDougall, who had to deal with health problems for his wife of many years Gwen, who is in a nursing home John, a former Commissioner is having problems after a hip replacement surgery. Both need your prayers for recovery and inner strength.
