Albanian cruiserweight Nuri “Albanian Tyson” Seferi (28-6, 18 KOs) scored a unanimous decision win over Sandro Siproshvili (23-6, 10 KOs) of Georgia to claim the vacant WBO European cruiserweight title on Saturday night at the Calafatti Halle Prater in Vienna, Austria. In a very exciting fight for the fans, Seferi won with scores of 116-113, 116-113 and 115-113.
