Andre Berto vs. Jan Zaveck

While visiting the Outlaws Boxing Club in Tarzana California we spoke to trainer Brandon Krause about the fight between Andre Berto and Jan Zaveck.

 Also on that card Gary Russell Jr., a member of the 2008 United States Olympic team and an undefeated professional who has sent 17 opponents crashing to defeat. The 23-year-old phenom will hit HBO airwaves for the first time on Saturday, September 3 when he squares off against Mexican knockout artist Leonilo Miranda in the co-featured bout on the Andre Berto vs. Jan Zaveck Boxing After Dark card at the Beau Rivage Resort and Casino in Biloxi, Mississippi.

 

The eight-round featherweight bout is a significant crossroads event for the Maryland southpaw who will be tested by the hard-hitting Miranda, who has won two of his last three bouts and will look to continue his streak upwards against the blue chip prospect.

 

“This is a big step for me in my career and I thank everyone involved for giving me this opportunity,” said Russell. “Miranda is a tough opponent, but I need to go out there and treat him like all the rest, by dominating him and then finishing him off.”
