Review: 2011-09-03, nice and tough fight between Andre Berto (27-1-0) and Jan Zaveck (31-1-0). Unfortunately the fight ended by referee technical decision at the end of the fifth round, if not Berto vs Zaveck could be one of the best boxing fights of 2011. Berto defeated Zaveck and won the IBF welterweight title. Andre Berto entered as the #4 welterweight in the world while Jan Zaveck entered as the #5 welterweight. Watch the video!
