Edmund Zefi vs. Luigi Alfieri
Palestra Karagac in Pec, Kosovo 7/8/21
When the biggest boxing event in Kosovo history takes place on August 7 at the Palestra Karagac in Pec, one of the featured bouts will be an interesting clash of young up-and-comers.
Based in the Czech Republic, Edmund Zefi (8-0, 5 KOs) returns to his birth-country to take on Italian Luigi Alfieri (6-1) for the vacant Universal Boxing Organization™ (UBO) Youth World Welterweight title.
Having entered the paid ranks in the summer of 2018, this will be only the second time 23-year-old “King Edmond” fights in Kosovo as a professional.
Last December, at the same venue, he impressively stopped former UBO Inter-Continental Champion Zoltan Szabo in five rounds.
Alfieri (25), from Vasto by the Adriatic Sea, is arguably the best young Italian at his weight. Last July he scored a split decision over 8-0 fellow prospect Pietro Rossetti in Rome.
Also on the card, promoted by Arena Ring and Gjocaj Boxing Promotion, will be Germany-based Kamer Maloku fighting in his birth-country for the first time.
Maloku (14-2, 11 KOs) takes on an opponent to be confirmed for the vacant UBO World Super Middleweight title.
Televised by Kosovo T7, the show will additionally have ten undercard bouts involving local talent.
