Kotai vs Seka on January 31 in London
16.01.04 - Polish Boxing Promotion boss Krzysztof Zbarski, promoter of WBF ‘world’ superwelterweight champion Mihaly Kotai, just announced that the Hungarian will put his title on the line against French challenger Monney ‘The Danger’ Seka on January 31 in London. Originating from the Ivory Coast, Seka has lived up to his nickname in compiling a record of 14-5-1 with 10 of his wins by knockout on the European circuit.

Just like the champion, he is 27 years old and should be in his prime. Outside of losing a 4-round decision in his pro debut, Seka – who will enjoy height advantages over Kotai – has only lost four points verdicts to some of Europe’s best: James Hare, Jyri Kjäll, Sergei Marchuk and Germany’s Alpaslan rate (or rated) with the elite of the continent. After that, he moved up to superwelterweight permanently, a division which should suit the tall puncher perfectly.
It seems clear that Kotai, a national star in Hungary, will not enjoy ‘Monney for Nothing’, but his German manager Olaf Schroeder of Fight Production nevertheless is happy: “It may take a while for Mihaly to sort him out and obviously he’s got to be alert of Seka’s power, but if Mihaly is on top of his game, I predict he will become the first to knock Seka out!”. The champion, who prepares in Hungary this time under the supervision of Laszlo Veres, brings a 26-1 (13 KO’s) record to the ring.
