Azat Hovhannisyan, 21-3 (17 KOs), a former super bantamweight championship challenger, and former WBC bantamweight and super bantamweight champion Luis Nery, 33-1 (25 KOs), will square off this Saturday at the Fox Theater in Pomona, California. Going down in the super bantamweight class, this contest is also promoted as a WBC championship eliminator. 

Since being halted by Brandon Figueroa in a title unification bout in 2021, Nery has won his last two fights. His recent results are similar to Hovhannisyan, who has won seven straight fights despite facing little opposition. Hovhannisyan hasn't lost since losing a razor-thin decision to Rey Vargas in 2018.

Let’s take a closer look at both fighters and where the odds are headed ahead of Fight Night.

Luis Nery 33-1 (25 KOs)

Since making his professional debut in 2012, Nery, a Southpaw who is now 28 years old, has fought 162 rounds and holds an amazing record of 33-1 with 25 knockouts. He has a height of 5'5", a reach of 65", and possesses above-average power in his hands, as demonstrated by the fact that he now boasts a knockout ratio of 73%.

Unfortunately, in his last four fights, he has only managed to stop one of his opponents inside the distance. Nery is a fan-friendly boxer who throws a lot of punches and also possesses a fairly strong chin.

Azat Hovhannisyan 21-3 (17 KOs)

Hovhannisyan, who is 34 years old, has a record of 21-3 and has 17 knockouts to his name. He has a current knockout ratio of 70.8%, which indicates that he is a hard hitter as well. 

Since making his debut in 2011, he has fought 119 rounds as a professional. Before that, he had a successful amateur career, during which he won the 2010 Armenian National Championships and competed at the 2009 AIBA World Championships and the 2010 European EUBC Championships.  In his first fight as a professional, he was defeated by Juan Reyes via a unanimous decision after four rounds via a unanimous decision, losing just twice in the time since.

Since going professional, he has defeated Ronny Rios, Jesus Martinez, and Glenn Porras, which earned him the vacant WBC Continental Americas Super Bantamweight Title and earned him the victory over Sergio Frias that earned him the unanimous decision after ten rounds. Hovhannisyan has an edge of one inch in height over Nery.
