News: Lerena Stops Seferi, Theophane is Back, Szpilka Returns

IBO cruiserweight world champion Kevin Lerena stopped Sefen Seferi in three rounds at Emperors Palace in Kempton Park, South Africa on Saturday night.

Lerena controlled the entire contest, with Seferi not doing much of anything on the contest.

During the third round, Lerena (24-1, 11 KOs) landed a left hand that sent Seferi down. The referee would initiate a count and then waved off the contest as Seferi (23-3-1, 21 KOs) appeared to be uninterested in fighting any further.

No doubt Larena's a good boxer, but he's never going to make it globally until he starts fighting outside of SA. There's big money to be made in Europe & the UK, so he needs to take full advantage.
