Hovhannesyan will take on Adrian Navarrette of Mexico in a six-round bout.

According to Hovhannesyan’s camp, it could be the fighter’s toughest test yet, as Navarette’s a power-punching brawler with an 18-7-1 record, having won 14 fights by knockout. He won his previous bout, but has lost four of his last six.

Hovhannesyan’s 9-0-1 with four wins by KO and has won seven in a row with his last two via knockout. He last fought on Sept. 24, winning via TKO against Baudel Cardenas.

A blog with the result of Art’s fight will be up later tonight and a story will appear in Saturday’s paper due to deadline.
