Zecirevic vs. Khutsisvili WBF Title Fight In Switzerland

Undefeated Enes Zecirevic, from Bosnia and Herzegovina but now based in Switzerland, is set to face Georgian Mikheil Khutsisvili for the vacant World Boxing Federation International Super Middleweight title on Saturday May 25 at the Sporthalle Badbetrieb in Bad Ragaz, Switzerland.

Zecirevic spots an unblemished professional record of 8-0 (6), but must be considered a late bloomer in the sport at 30 years of age. He turned pro in May 2011, and this will be his first championship fight, against what will undoubtedly be his biggest test, in the paid ranks.

24-year-old Khutsisvili, 26-18-5 (10), on the other hand was only seventeen when he dropped the west in 2006, and the fight in Switzerland will amazingly be his 50th professional bout in less than seven years. However, while he has challenged for a few minor titles, this will surely be his most important fight to date.

“I have fought world class boxers, including Martin Murray, Matthew Hatton, Sergey Rabchenko and Jack Culcay, and I know for sure that this guy I am fighting in Switzerland is not as good as those guys”, said Khutsisvili before his departure from Tbilisi airport.

“I have had bad nights and good nights in the ring, but I feel better than ever and has not lost in my last five bouts, so I am confident that I will win this one too!”

The Enes Zecirevic vs. Mikheil Khutsisvili WBF International Super Middleweight title fight will be promoted by Team CALE Boxing Promotion and Leonardo Caputo.
