Guest Intro

Today’s guest was the 2010 Golden Gloves Champion as an amateur and kicked off his Pro Boxing Career at 18, leaving his first opponent face down and in the first-round boys.

Not a bad start to your pro career! And I don’t think the other fella ever fought again, just quietly. He cooked him!

He held the Commonwealth Super-welter weight title in 2018 and has an impressive professional record of 30 wins, 4 losses, and 21 knockouts.

He’s successfully gone toe to toe with boxing royalty in Jeff Horn and Anthony Mundine.

Known for his trash talk and cocky persona, he is considered the “heal” of Australian boxing.

He’s on the brink of a WBA world title shot that, if successful, sets up arguably the biggest Australian boxing bout ever with Tim Tszyu.

Let’s get into it! Give it up for Michael Pretty Boy Zerafa.
