Biography Timeline


Seferi was born in Gostivar, SFR Yugoslavia (present-day North Macedonia) and is of Albanian heritage. Whilst in Yugoslavia as an eight-year-old he started wrestling, a sport which his grandfather had competed in professionally. In 1992 his family fled from Gostivar and moved to Burgdorf, Switzerland. Seferi found it hard to adapt to the lifestyle and language change, and as he was 15 at the time he was too old for compulsory education. He took up boxing in order to help with integration into Swiss society. He began to train under the guidance of trainer Sandor Konya at a local gym in Burgdorf, but he also trained with legendary Swiss martial artist and kickboxer Andy Hug as well.

The 22-year-old Seferi won the fight by a knockout in the first round. his first defeat came on 16 June 2001 to Ukrainian Kostyantyn Okhrey, with Seferi being unable to continue in the 4th round due to a rib injury.

On 7 July 2012 Seferi made his comeback fight following his operation against Giulian Ilie in Bern, Switzerland before the Wladimir Klitschko v Tony Thompson bout.

However, he gained momentum in the latter rounds and knocked down his opponent in the sixth and eighth round respectively to win on points over the 8 rounds.
