Stieglitz vs Gevor Showdown Set For April 9 in Magdeburg

By Per Ake Persson

It will be tough former EBU middleweight champ Khoren Gevor that steps in on short notice and replaces the injured Dimitri Sartison as the opponent for WBO super middleweight titleholder Robert Stieglitz.
 
Gevor, a loser to Sartison in his last time out, was in full in training in Amsterdam for a WBA eliminator at middleweight against Matthew Macklin on April 16 - a fight which went up in smoke when Macklin pulled out. Gevor has now accepted an offer to take the Stieglitz shot on April 9 in Magdeburg at super middleweight.
 
Gevor, 31-5, again steps up to super middle and is certainly up against a tough task but he's still a good challenger for Stieglitz, 39-2.

Gevor should have stayed in middleweight division and get a title shot there...he's 2 short for super middleweight...I can easily see him being a champ at middleweight

Props to Gev. He may lose again, but at least he's not afraid to step up.
