A huge outsider going into his June 9 fight with the returning Tyson Fury, Albania’s Sefer Seferi insists he has the necessary combination of good chin and KO power to score the upset in Manchester. Despite having boxed most of his career down at cruiserweight and despite the fact that he will be giving away so much in both height and reach, the 39 year old is not only predicting a win – he is also saying he will fight Fury again after he defeats him.

Here, the man with the 23-1(21) pro record speaks with Boxing News:

Q: This is of course the biggest fight of your career. How do you respond to those people who say you are a “soft touch” for Tyson Fury?
