World Boxing Federation (WBF) Intercontinental Cruiserweight Champion Sefer Seferi will return to his real weight-class and defend his title on Saturday April 1 in home-town Burgdorf, Switzerland, after a short venture to the Heavyweight division last September.

Nicknamed “The Real Deal”, Seferi took on a big challenge when he accepted to fight world-class Manuel Charr in Germany for the WBA International Heavyweight belt, but the added weight didn’t do him any good and he lost on points after a spirited effort.

The loss is the sole blemish on his otherwise outstanding 21-1 (19) record, and now he is ready to make the first defense of the WBF title he won on April 23, 2016 at the very same venue, the Markthalle. On the undercard will be his older brother, former WBO European champion Nuri Seferi (37-8, 21 KOs).

Sefer will face former Brazilian and South American Champion Marcelo Ferreira dos Santos, who brings a record of 22-10-1 (18), and hasn’t lost a fight in almost ten years. Now based in Spain, where he had two of his last three bouts, dos Santos has stopped fourteen of his last fifteen opponents inside the distance.

Fight Night” at the Markthalle in Burgdorf, featuring the Seferi brothers and headlined by Sefer Seferi vs. Marcelo Ferreira dos Santos for the WBF Intercontinental Cruiserweight title, will be promoted by Knockout Boxing Switzerland, run by the Seferi brothers themselves.
