David Alaverdian Wants to Fight

David Alaverdian had hoped to fight a higher ranked opponent in the United States at flyweight this month. He recently revealed on Instagram that two separate opponents had agreed to fight him before backing out.

The Jewish Boxing Blog reached out to David about the two opponents, but he politely declined to name them. Since they weren't going to fight him anyway, naming them would only serve to embarrass them, which isn't Alaverdian's goal. He just wants to fight. David did tell The JBB that the two opponents were both in the super flyweight division.

"If we don't find anyone," David told The JBB,  "we'll have to do Mexico again until I'm ranked high enough for better fights." Mexico is the place to find 112 and 115 pounders willing to fight. About a fourth of all flyweights and super flyweights listed on BoxRec are from Mexico.

At 5-0 with 4 KOs, Alaverdian's ability has outpaced his résumé. The problem is prospective opponents know it and are scared to fight him. "To be honest, I'm a bit frustrated," the Israeli native admitted. "But we'll get through it."
