Fighting out of Alpes-de-Haut-Provence, France, Guerfi fights for the first time in the U.S. on November 10 having previously fought in France, England, Belgium, Panama, Luxembourg and Argentina throughout his career. The 28-year-old won a European title by defeating Stephane Jamoye in 2013 and enters this bout on a two-fight win streak having beat Oscar Trujillo and Arnoldo Solano.
