Undefeated junior middleweight sensation Vanes “The Nightmare” Martirosyan (29-0, 18 KOs) is just days away from facing Saul Roman (34-8, 29 KOs) at the STAPLES Center in Los Angeles, California, in a WBC elimination bout for the right to face Saul “Canelo” Alvarez. The fighter of Armenian descent calls nearby Glendale, CA, home and looks forward to fighting in his backyard. It has been over two years since Martirosyan last fought in California and over three years since he last fought in Los Angeles in front of his hometown fans.
“This is a dream come true for me. I am very excited to fight in my backyard and have all of my friends and family at my fight. This fight will get me one step closer to a title shot,” said Martirosyan.
The “Nightmare” feeds off of the energy that his fans bring to the arena. Team Martirosyan has made it easy for his fans to get tickets to see the Pride of Glendale in action.
