Another tough assignment for Zack Page

By Karl Freitag

38-year-old heavyweight gatekeeper Zack Page (21-37-2, 7 KOs) of Warren, Ohio, will face an undefeated fighter for the eighth consecutive time and 18th time in his career when he meets unbeaten Francesco Pianeta (24-0-1, 14 KOs) on Saturday night at the Maritim Hotel in Magdeburg, Germany. Page has had some success fighting in Germany. Last time he fought there in December 2010, he lost a controversial majority decision to unbeaten Manuel Charr and before that he upset previously unbeaten and highly regarded Sebastian Koeber in this same city almost two years ago to the day. During his career, Page has surprised some “names” such as Kevin McBride, Cisse Salif and former world champ Lou Del Valle. If he can beat Pianeta, it would halt an eight fight losing streak.
