Boxing Bites: Sefer Seferi back at cruiser tonight / Pacquiao v Broner tour

World Boxing News 17/11/2018

Sefer Seferi returns from his loss to Tyson Fury back in April as he takes on Firat Arslan in Germany.

The 39 year-old was drafted in as a guinea pig for Fury’s big comeback fight as the former heavyweight champion shed a ton of weight.

Seferi, massively out-weighed by Fury, took the offer in good jest but realistically was never in the contest.

In a bid to get a world title shot at cruiserweight back on track, Seferi battles Arslan in a veteran shootout.

Other news saw the confirmation of a press tour for the forthcoming clash between Manny Pacquiao and Adrien Broner.

The pair will clash in January and make the Las Vegas encounter official next week.

Schedule:

Monday, Nov. 19 at 11 a.m. ET
Gotham Hall in New York City

Tuesday, Nov. 20 at 11 a.m. PT
Waldorf Astoria Beverly Hills
