David Alaverdian Scheduled to Fight Next Month

David Alaverdian is scheduled to fight on October 8 in Jackson, Mississippi, USA, according to BoxRec. The bout is scheduled for six rounds in the super flyweight division. Guatemalan super middleweight prospect Lester Martinez is slated to headline the card.

Alaverdian (6-0, 5 KOs) is an athletic and skilled switch-hitter. His last pro fight was on April 2, an impressive second round stoppage over veteran Jeno Tonte. The 29 year old U.S.-based Israeli fought twice in the European amateur championships in May.

Tonte held a height advantage over David. On dealing with a taller opponent, Alaverdian has said, "You can break distance with explosive movements. For myself, it has always been easier to fight taller guys on the outside and counter rather than walking them down."

David eats his last meal four hours before a fight, but doesn't have a set menu. He just tries to load up on carbohydrates. Before the Tonte fight, he ate fruit, oats, steak, and a ton of rice. It seemed to work as he was light on his feet and quick with his hands in scoring the stoppage victory.

For this upcoming bout, no opponent has been announced.
