Hardman vs. Zerafa Preview:
Hardman vs Zerafa is one of the most anticipated fights in Australia. Every boxing fan knows how much these two players hate each other. They almost start fighting during their pre-fight conference. Guards had to pull themselves from each other to stop throwing punches.
Though, later this event created controversy and raised questions about its authenticity. People said that it was fake, and they did that for promotion purposes. But Hardman speaks out against this false claim.
Hardman says, “He would like it to be fake, and then we can be friends after – he tried to do that at the press conference – but that’s not how I was brought up. If you say certain things, you stand by it,”
“I do not like this guy – just the sight of him makes me want to punch the blood from his nose. He lacks the qualities of a good man; no integrity, he flips on his word, he says one thing and does another.”
Hardman is an unbeaten champion. He never lost a match since he switched his career to boxing from mixed martial art fights. In the last twelve months, he won four fights. On the other hand, Zerafa is one of the most respected boxers in Australia. After losing to Zerafa, boxers announce retirement.
The clash of Hardman vs Zerafa will be held for the IBF middleweight title eliminator. After Gennady Golovkin set to go up in the super-middleweight division to fight against Canelo Alvarez, the place got vacant. And the winner of the Hardman vs Zerafa will face the No.1 ranked contender, Brazil’s Esquiva Falcao, for the Gennadiy IBF Middleweight title belt.
