Alaverdian Makes Weight

David Alaverdian made the flyweight limit heading into his fifth professional battle tomorrow at Auditorio Benito Juárez in Los Mochis, Sinaloa, Mexico. Alaverdian's opponent will be Jesús "Gallito" Bojorquez.

Alaverdian (4-0, 3 KOs) flew on a private plane to Los Mochis earlier today. The U.S.-based Israeli is coming in the lightest of his pro career. He has been working with legendary trainer Floyd Mayweather, Sr. Check out a JBB profile of David here.

Bojorquez (0-1-1) is likely overmatched in this bout against Alaverdian. "Gallito" is from Guasave, which is less than an hour's drive from Auditorio Benito Juárez and is also located in Sinaloa. For his two fights, he has weighed in around the light flyweight limit of 108 pounds. In his debut, he drew with another debutant. That fight took place in April. He was stopped in the second round of his last bout which took place in June.

Alaverdian and Bojorquez both weighed in at 112 pounds. This fight is scheduled for four rounds. The card will be shown on UFC Fight Pass.
