Serdar Avci vs. Taryel Jafarov
Istanbul, Turkey 14/7/21
Current Universal Boxing Organization™ (UBO) Inter-Continental Heavyweight Champion Serdar Avci (10-0, 10 KOs) is set to make a quick return to the ring.
The older brother of UBO Inter-Continental Super Welterweight titlist Arda Avci, Serdar won his UBO title last May, stopping undefeated Georgian Zaal Kvezereli in two rounds in Kiev, Ukraine.
But now he returns to his home-town of Istanbul, Turkey on July 14, and is in deep training at the famous 5th Street Gym in Miami, Florida.
In a time where it is more difficult than ever to secure opponents, the 35-year-old former amateur-standout will face Taryel Jafarov from Azerbaijan for the Interim UBO World Heavyweight title.
While his record may be modest, Jafarov (7-2, 6 KOs) was also an accomplished amateur and his two defeats in the paid ranks came to world class cruiserweight contender Olanrewaju Durodola and undefeated Russian Vladimir Ivanov.
The fight will headline a card promoted by Serdar Avci Promotions, and will feature local up-and-coming talent on a stacked undercard.
