WBA #1, IBF #2, WBO #7 middleweight Michael Zerafa (30-4, 19 KOs) will clash with Danilo Creati (8-0, 1 KO) over ten rounds at the Aware Theatre in Sydney, NSW, Australia on Wednesday. The bout will be televised on Foxtel Main Event and Kayo Sport Pay-Per-View.
Zerafa spoke to Wide World of Sports about a future opponent. “We’ve got offers from everywhere,” Zerafa said. “I’ve also got potential opponents with GGG and Falcão. We’re in a very good position, with three huge potential fights. It’s an awesome position. We’re open to anything that benefits us moving forward. Whether it’s a world title shot or not, the money has to make sense.
“There’s three good offers, so we’ll sit down now and work out which one’s the best. If it was up to me I’d jump on a plane tonight and fight [Munguia]. I believe I can beat him, I’ve seen him a few times, he fought a fellow Aussie in Dennis Hogan and I thought Hogan won that fight.”
Hope the “hit” isn’t still out on him, might be snipers in the stands. Domestic level at best, Brook, Quillin and Magomedov taught you it’s better to stay home
I have absolutely no clue what Zerafa has done to be ranked #’s 1 & 2 by the WBA and the IBF. Am I missing something??? Since he lost to Horn in the rematch, he’s beaten Anthony Mundine who was 82, Siliveni Nawai and Isaac Hardman and that’s good enough for a #1 rating. WOW!
Amazing how highly ranked is Zerafa with such a poor record, what his chances are on defeating a top class Middleweight, let alone Charlo and Alim?
Best fight for him is against Munguia or GGG, either one will flatten him but for good money, back to Australia to keep winning against shot guys like Mundine and Horn.
Zerafa is a glorified club fighter. Grossly overrated. Easy to figure out why he is getting lots of offers. Easy work to beat such a highly overrated guy.
