Zoltan Sera Makes First WBF Title-Defense June 15
Less than three months after winning the title, World Boxing Federation (WBF) International Super Welterweight Champion Zoltan Sera of Hungary will make his first defense on June 15, when he faces Southpaw compatriot Ferenc Hafner at the Hotel Aquincum in Budapest.
Sera (29) won the title in March when he came out on the right side of a technical decision against another Southpaw countryman, Sandor Micsko, on a show in Bielefeld, Germany. Televised live in Hungary on FIX TV, he is not expected to get an easy fight against Hafner.
Amazingly, Zoltan Sera, 14-1 (9), only turned professional in June of 2013. In six months he compiled a 12-1 record, won the Hungarian national Middleweight title, and only lost to undefeated Brit Joe Selkirk (11-0) last December. He rebounded a month later with a victory in Budapest, before winning the WBF title in March.
Nine years the younger man, the defending champion must be considered a healthy favorite to retain his crown on June 15, but Ferenc Hafner, 22-5 (12), is no push-over and most of his losses came abroad to notable names such as Robert Woge (8-0), Rocky Fielding (10-0), Roamer Alexis Angulo (9-0) and Andy Lee (30-2).
Having won four of his last five bouts, Hafner is aware that this is a big opportunity for him to win a title on home soil, and the local boxing fans should be in for an entertaining fight where both boxers will fight their hearts out to take their career to the next level.
Staged by Profibox-Promotion, the Sera vs. Hafner WBF International Super Welterweight title fight is part of a five-bout card which also features two additional championship encounters, one of which involves promoter Zoltan Petranyi defending two titles at Heavyweight.
