Bad Left Hook Live Boxing Results and Commentary: Dmitry Sartison vs. Khoren Gevor


On Polsat Sport, Universum's last major German card to be aired on ZDF (mostly on tape delay) is being aired live.  There are three major fights on the card:

Sebastian Zbik vs. Jorge Sebastian Heiland - Zbik puts his interim middleweight title on the line against undefeated Argentinian fighter Heiland.  While I don't know much about Heiland, the fact that he fights out of Argentina probably means that he hasn't faced much stiff competition up to this point.

Dmitry Sartison vs. Khoren Gevor - This is the fight of the afternoon in my mind.  Sartison has rattled off a series of decent wins since losing to Mikkel Kessler and has captured a "regular" super middleweight title.  Gevor was a top 10 middleweight who is moving up for another title shot.  His last time out, he lost a decision to Felix Sturm in a fight I thought he won with ease. 

Alexander Dimitrenko vs. Yaroslav Zavorotnyy - Dimitrenko will try to become the fourth guy in a row to win the European heavyweight title while vacant against subpar opposition.  Original opponent, Denis Bakhtov, who's a tough guy who's better than his record indicates, had to pull out with an injury.

In addition, former titlist Karoly Balzsay will be facing Azizz Daari, while Juan Carlos Gomez will take on Zack Page, who took the fight on short notice, and is fresh off of a shutout win over Peter McNeely in a fight he also took on short notice.  Page is probably my favorite journeyman at the moment for his ability to pull off this kind of upset.
