Gevor is coming off a six fight winning streak since suffering his two losses due to unlucky injuries. Tatevosyan who knocked out former world champion Armand Krajnc in 2002 is coming fresh of a European title fight against Howard Eastman where he dropped a twelve round decision.
“I’ve seen videos on Tatevosyan. I know he is beatable”, the small but powerful Gevor said. “He is running a lot to the left and to the right. My biggest concern is that I can’t land my punches because he moves so awkward.”
It’s Gevor’s third fight on a Spotlight Boxing event in a row. His last contest where he stopped Dmitro Gotovskiy on March 30 at Saaltheater in Aachen, Germany, by disqualification was also broadcast live on www.boxing.de.
“His knockout win over Armand Krajnc doesn't impress me”, Gevor said. “Armand was an easy target that night and at the end he landed his punches almost by accident.”
Gevor moved to Germany in May 2000 and is now living in Hamburg (Gevor: “I like this city a lot!”) with his young wife. His coach is Magomed Shaburow. He was born in Edshmiadsin, a city close to Armenia’s capitcal Erivan.
Gevor is a stable mate of WBO middleweight champion Felix Sturm who is fighting against Oscar de la Hoya on June 5.
“I’ll put money on Felix”, Gevor said. “De la Hoya will underestimate him and I believe Felix will win a decision. This is his chance of a lifetime and he will use it.”
In three other fights live on www.boxing.de, Guzmil Perdomo will fight Gringo Mandache at super middleweight, Egon Roth will fight Pavel Vanacek and Valeri Tschetschenev celebrates his professional debut against Roman Kaloczai (both heavyweight).
