By Julio Thyme 09/07/2010

Universum will present another boxing highlight in the super middleweight division. In an Universum stable challenge WBA world champion Dimitri Sartison (26-1, 17 KOs) will face highly rated Khoren Gevor (31-4, 16 KOs). Sartison who is trained by Magomed Schaburow became the WBA champion and successor of former champion Mikkel Kessler. Khoren Gevor is now training under Dutchman Roland Germerts in Amsterdam. For this third shot at a world title Gevor will step up in the weight division to super middleweight. In a sensational fight in 2007 he lost to former champion Artur Abraham and in 2009 he was again defeated by Felix Sturm. After returning successfully to the ring in January 2010 he will now have his final chance to become world champion. Dimitri Sartison: “ This is a hard fight for both of us. I’m looking forward to this. Khoren is a strong challenger”. Khoren Gevor:  “I’m excited about Dimitri facing me. I’ll fight till they drop – as people expect from me”.
