Schedule Update for Several Boxers

Dr. Stefi Cohen (1-0, one KO) is currently in Dubai, United Arab Emirates for her fight against Marcela Nieto this Saturday, September 18. For more information on the fight, check out this article. The JBB will have full coverage of this bout.

"Bulldog" Benny Sinakin (6-1, 3 KOs) is scheduled to fight on November 27 at the 2300 Arena in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA, according to multiple sources. BoxRec lists his opponent as fifty-fight veteran Josue Obando. The JBB will have a preview closer to the fight date. Sinakin is coming off of his first loss, a close decision to Afunwa King. Benny had been scheduled to comeback this Friday, but his return bout will take place two days after Thanksgiving, instead.

Sinakin's fight is penciled in for six rounds. His only other six round affair was the loss to King, but the distance wasn't the problem in that fight. Benny started slowly before finding his rhythm late. November will be about seven months after the loss, which is a good amount of time to get back in action. Benny didn't rush back too quickly before he was mentally ready, but he will not have let the loss fester too long and allow it to gnaw at his career.

In an interview with Knuckle Up over the weekend, David Alaverdian (4-0, 3 KOs) said his management is working on getting him a fight for October 7 in Tucson, Arizona. Nothing has been finalized. Alaverdian trains constantly, doing cardio in the morning and boxing later in the day. He eats healthy as well, and as a result he only needs to cut about five or six pounds to make weight at any given moment.

Mor Oknin (1-0, one KO) told The JBB he is planning to fight in Mexico next month. Oknin's debut also took place in Mexico. He won by way of first round TKO over Angel Campoy. Oknin had begun to assert control of the contest when Campoy bowed out due to injury.
