Middleweight contender Michael Zerafa 27-4 (16) is reaching his stride.

 

The WBA number seven and WBO number four contender scored a breakthrough win last year, knocking out former WBO welterweight champion Jeff Horn in nine rounds in August before dropping a majority decision in the immediate rematch in December.

 

The 28-year-old believes his best days are still ahead of him and with 31 pro fights under his belt he says he can still be a force on the world stage.
