Australian based Nigerian and world rated welterweight, Wale Omotoso (17-0, 15 KOs), has the skills and power to defeat the world IBF 147 pound champion Jan Zaveck, declared his trainer and manager Murray Thomson who talked with Fightnews today. “I have watched tapes of Zaveck in action and I am convinced Omotoso has the style to defeat the IBF champion,” said Thomson. “His short stature and aggressive tactics would be perfect for Omotoso to score a knockout.”

“Omotoso scored impressive wins in 2009 stopping highly regarded American Emanuel Augustus in nine rounds and Korean Hwan-Young Park (22-4, 14 KOs) in three rounds. Omotoso had plenty of media coverage when he was in Nigeria,” Thomson continued. “His country is 100% supportive in Omotoso’s quest for world title honors.”

IBF #13 Omotoso recently had a holiday in Nigeria with his family but is now back in Melbourne where he has had all of his 17 professional contests scoring 15 KOs.

Murray Thomson is a former Australian amateur welterweight champion and a leading Australian promoter.
