Defending WBO middleweight champ, Robert Stieglitz (39-2, 23 KOs) will be seeking to make the fourth defense of his belt against late substitute, Khoren Gevor (31-5, 16 KOs) this Saturday in his adopted home country of Germany.
Stieglitz-Gevor came together by chance, after Stieglitz’s original opponent, Dimitri Sartison, pulled out of their bout due to injury and Gevor’s opponent, Matthew Macklin also canceled his contest.
Stieglitz’s last bout was a successful unanimous decision defense against Enrique Ornelas in November of last year. Gevor has dropped two of his last three, losing unanimous decisions to Felix Sturm and Dimitri Sartison.
