David Alaverdian to Fight in Vegas in March

Undefeated pro boxer David Alaverdian is scheduled to fight on March 18 in his adopted hometown of Las Vegas, Nevada, USA. Reid Boxing teammates Lester Martinez, an undefeated super middleweight from Guatemala, and Britton Norwood, a veteran light heavyweight and promotor from Mississippi, are slated to appear as well.

Alaverdian is 7-0-1 with 6 KOs. In his last fight, Alaverdian stopped Edgar Mendoza in the second round. The lone draw, which came against local prospect Angel "Rayito" Meza in Mexico last November, was a terrible decision. Alaverdian's activity and accuracy carried five of the six rounds while Meza spent most of the fight hesitant to let his hands go. Only judge Carlos Parra, who scored the bout 59-55 for the Israeli, seemed to acknowledge David's dominate jab. Jorge Luis Romero inexplicably scored the fight a draw (57-57) and Gary Eder Lopez, who improbably gave Meza the fight 58-56, is either incompetent or corrupt.

After that horrible bit of  judging, Alaverdian will be happy to fight in the United States for the second time as a pro. In April, he stole the show with a second round demolition of veteran Jeno Tonte in Dearborn, Michigan. Alaverdian is a native of Netanya, Israel but relocated to Las Vegas a few years ago. "This is Sin City, " David told The Jewish Boxing Blog. "In Sin City, I stay far away from sin.

"I'm such a boring person. I don't party, I don't smoke, I don't drink," he said. "I just train, train, stay fit, and watch my diet." This will be David's first fight in the Las Vegas area. The bout is scheduled for six rounds in the flyweight division.
