Delgado gets world title shot

Sports Fan Properties officially announced today that Atlanta boxer Paul “The Truth” Delgado (25-9-1) from Atlanta, Georgia will be fighting current IBF welterweight champion Jan Zaveck (30-1) on February 18. The bout will take place in partnership with SES Boxing and will take place at Sportpark Arena in Ljubljana, Slovenia. Delgado, who is currently ranked #15 in the world by the IBF, recently signed a two-year exclusive promotional contract with Roswell, Georgia-based Sports Fan Properties. This will mark the first-time that Delgado or Sports Fan Properties will be involved with a world title fight with one of the major sanctioning bodies and the fight will mark the first time that Delgado has fought in Europe and that Zaveck has faced an American boxer.
