HIALEAH, FL — WBA junior middleweight titlist Erislandy Lara and challenger Jan Zaveck were on target for yesterday’s weigh-in. Lara is coming off a wide unanimous decision victory over Delvin Rodriguez in June. Zaveck is one a three-fight win streak with his last victory coming over Sasha Yengoyan in April.
PREDICTION: Zaveck is probably one of the toughest and most durable guys at 154, as evidenced from his performances against Keith Thurman and Andre Berto. But he needs someone willing to go to war with him and that’s not Lara (unless you have the foot speed to force him). Lara will be too elusive and frustrate Zaveck the entire night with his accurate straight left. LARA WIDE UD.
