Evensen To Challenge Miskirtchian For European Crown


Team Sauerland has confirmed that Andreas Evensen, (17-2-1, 6 KOs), will challenge European Featherweight Champion Alexander Miskirtchian, (21-2-1, 7 KOs), on February 9. The venue will be announced in due time.

 

“Andreas has clinched three good wins at the Nordic Fight Nights in 2012, he is ready to take the next step and go after the European Champion,” promoter Nisse Sauerland said. “Miskirtchian is an accomplished champion but I am confident his reign will end when Andreas gets his fast hands on him.”

 

Miskirtchian won the belt in September 2011 with a split decision victory over Sofiane Takoucht. He has made one successful defence against Frenchman Philippe Frenois, whom Evensen dominated throughout the entire ten rounds during their clash in Helsinki on November 10.

 

“I have been waiting for this chance for a long time, I am glad the big day has finally come,” Evensen said. “I will take Miskirtchian´s title and be the new champion on February 9.”

 

 


Miskirtchian is looking forward to the showdown as well. “I am really excited to defend my European title against Evensen,” he stated. “A few years ago he fought in Belgium against a friend of mine and I always knew that I would face him one day. Evensen really is a warrior and he deserves to be the challenger. I saw his last fights and he did a good job. I will be a thousand percent ready and I will enjoy to defend my title and beat Evensen.”
