Undefeated Albanian Cruiserweight Sefer Seferi will be looking to live up to his ring-name, “The Real Deal”, when he squares off with Hungarian veteran Laszlo Hubert for the vacant World Boxing Federation (WBF) Intercontinental title on Saturday April 23 at the Markthalle in his adopted hometown of Burgdorf, Switzerland.
Seferi, 20-0 (18), won the WBF Intercontinental Cruiserweight championship back in 2010, but for various reasons never made a defense of the title. Now he gets a chance to reclaim his old belt, and pave the way for a potential world title-opportunity in the future.
“I have prepared 100 percent for this fight, and I am very motivated, knowing my opponent is good and more experienced than me. It will be a big night”, said Seferi in a recent interview. “I am looking forward to fight in front of all the Albanian and Swiss fans who will come to support me on the night, and I will win this title for them.”
Southpaw Budapest-resident Laszlo Hubert, 44-18-1 (29), turned professional in 2007 and has since fought for, and won, a long line of championships. In 2010 he captured the WBF International title at Heavyweight, a weight class he has occasionally ventured into for big opportunities.
At 37 and 40 years of age respectively, neither Seferi nor Hubert are “spring chickens” and both will enter this fight knowing its a must-win if they are to continue having any hopes of even bigger accomplishments. So, backs against the wall, this could easily turn out to be an explosive encounter!
“Punch It Fight Night” at the Markthalle in Burgdorf, Switzerland on April 23 will be promoted by Sefer Seferi in cooperation with his older brother Nuri “Albanian Tyson” Seferi, himself a former Cruiserweight contender with a fine 36-7 (20) record and several titles on his resume.
