David Alaverdian to Face Ernesto Irias

David Alaverdian is scheduled to face Ernesto Irias in a super flyweight contest at the Westgate Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA on April 10. Irias signifies Alaverdian's toughest professional opponent.

Alaverdian is a 29 year old from Nahariya, Israel and is now based in Las Vegas. His pro record is 7-0-1 with 6 KOs. Alaveridan deserved to win the draw, which took place on November 11 against Angel Geovanny Meza, an undefeated local prospect.

David has had some trouble getting an opponent for this date. He initially planned to face a high-rated gatekeeper. Then, David hoped to fight an untested undefeated prospect. Both declined to take on Alaverdian.

Irias is now the scheduled opponent. He's a 27 year old from Managua, Nicaragua, a country that boasts a quality scene in the 112 and 115 pound divisions. Nicknamed El Destructor, Irias sports a record of 15-6-1 with 9 KOs. He held a regional flyweight title and has challenged for another minor title. He challenged for that vacant title in Germany when he faced Mirco Martin, an undefeated German. The fight was deemed a majority draw. Irias recently went the distance with former world champion Cristofer Rosales.

Irias had been scheduled to fight Dewayne Beamon in a twelve-rounder on April 8, but Beamon had to pull out of that fight. Ernesto then took the fight with Alaverdian. This bout is scheduled for six rounds. Full preview to come.
