Khoren Gevor (Armenian: Խորեն Գեվորգյան; born Khoren Gevorgyan on March 16, 1980 in Etchmiadzin, Armenia) is an Armenian-German professional boxer. He is a former EBU Middleweight champion.

Biography[edit]

Gevor was born on March 16, 1980, in Etchmiadzin, Armenia. He moved too Hamburg, Germany when he was 16 and currently fights out of there. Khoren is known for his good technique and speed.

Amateur career[edit]

Gevor started boxing at the age of 12. He had a very successful amateur career with 72 wins in 75 fights and won six national Armenian titles. Khoren turned pro in 2000 and signed a contract with Universum Box Promotion. He is currently managed by Klaus-Peter Kohl.

Professional career[edit]

Khoren won his first professional titles when, on December 3, 2005, he stopped Mexican Gustavo Magallanes in the eighth round and won the vacant IBF and WBO Inter-Continental middleweight titles. He would defend both titles against Siarhei Khomitski before vacating them soon after.

Gevor fought against compatriot Arthur Abraham for the IBF Middleweight title on August 18, 2007. Gevor was defeated by an 11th-round knockout from a powerful left hook.

On November 28, 2008, Gevor beat Finn Amin Asikainen in his hometown of Helsinki by 7th-round knockout and won the European championship belt.

Gevor lost a controversial bout to WBA Middleweight Champion Felix Sturm by unanimous decision on July 11, 2009. Gevor was able to get inside Sturm at will and unload on his body in the early rounds. In the third, he even appeared to score a flash knockdown that the referee ruled as a slip. In the middle rounds, Gevor slowed down his work rate a bit. Gevor came back with a vengeance in rounds 10 and 11, resuming his high work rate and pushing Sturm around the ring on the inside. The 12th was a bit of a toss-up with both fighters looking like they were still trying to win the fight.[1]

On April 9, 2011, Khoren fought WBO Super Middleweight Champion Robert Stieglitz in a very competitive brawl. Gevor received a cut over his left eye in round three. The fight got more dirty in round ten when, after referee Manfred Küchler deducted a point from Gevor, both fighters wrestled each other onto the canvas. Stieglitz emerged with a cut over his right eye and Gevor was disqualified by the referee. Angry, Khoren attacked Küchler and was removed by security.[2]

Gevor fought Baker Barakat in a six-round bout on December 10, 2011. The whole fight was fairly even. As soon as Barakat was announced the winner by decision, Khoren turned to the referee and punched him in the face. Barakat and people from both corners immediately tried to hold Gevor back. Later on in the dressing rooms, the fighting continued and police had to be called in to break it up.[3]

Personal life[edit]

Khoren lives with his wife, Nenel, in Hamburg, Germany. They have two sons and a daughter. Both his sons are also boxers, fighting for a club in Hamburg and have become Northern Germany champions.[4] In his free time, Khoren enjoys radio-controlled cars and motor racing.
