Vanes Martirosyan Update

Looking to make a statement

Raymond Rodriguez

Undefeated junior middleweight sensation Vanes “The Nightmare” Martirosyan (28-0, 17KOs) will be returning to the ring in December, most likely against the rugged Pawel Wolak (27-1, 17KOs). The bout will take place either on the undercard of the Julio Cesar Chavez Jr.-Alfonso Gomez pay per view event on December 4th or it will be the main event of a Fox Sports card that will take place on December 18th. The date should be finalized within the next couple weeks.

While the Glendale, CA based Armenian is disappointed that a title fight with WBA junior middleweight champion Miguel Cotto didn’t materialize, he will not take Wolak lightly. “I look forward to starting training camp and getting ready for Wolak. Freddie (Roach) and Alex (Ariza) will make sure I am ready for whatever he brings,” the 24-year-old Martirosyan stated. (more…)

“Glendale Glory” returns

3rd installment of historic series Oct 22nd

Undefeated bantamweight Khabir “The Crazy Russian” Suleymanov (10-0, 4 KOs) continues his quest for a world championship when he takes on Javier “El Girito” Gallo (17-1-1, 9 KOs) for the vacant NABO title. The ten-round main event will headline “GLENDALE GLORY 3″ at the Glendale Civic Auditorium on Friday, October 22nd.

Suleymanov, originally from Chelyabinsk, Russia, now living in Hollywood, CA and training out of Freddie Roach’s Wildcard Boxing Club, won the New York Golden Gloves as an amateur. Gallo, originally from Tijuana, Baja California, Mexico and now living in Buena Park, CA, is the #13 ranked bantamweight in the NABO. Both fighters had signed to face then NABO champion Chris Avalos before Avalos lost his title to Christopher Martin on ShoBox last month. The NABO title was then ruled vacant because Martin had failed to make the requisite weight for the title. (more…)

Margarito funds Olympic quest

Photo by Manuel Herrera (Team Garcia)

Selling tamales, tortillas and bracelets to raise funds to send four local boxers to the 2010 National PAL Boxing Championships in San Antonio, Texas proved impossible for the families of the young Olympic hopefuls when their hard work produced less than $300. That is until Antonio Margarito came into the picture. When Margarito heard of the family’s misfortune he immediately offered to pay for round trip airfare and room accommodations for the fighters. When asked why he did it Margarito stated, “I’ve been there. I know what it’s like to have a dream crushed because you have no money.” (more…)

Looks like newly crowned WBO super featherweight champion Ricky Burns (29-2, 7 KOs) will make his first defense against #3 rated Matt Zegan (42-5-2, 21 KOs) on December 4 or December 11 in London. Apparently the contract was signed today and the fight will go ahead despite Zegan’s questionable draw with Boris Berg (3-0-1, 2 KOs) in a junior welterweight bout on Sunday in Berlin. Berg was originally announced as the winner of that bout, however two days later the result was controversially changed to a draw by the German Boxing Association.

Briggs demands Vitali resign

Heavyweight title challenger Shannon Briggs has demanded that WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko resign as Ambassador for UNESCO, citing comments attributed to Vitali that Briggs says trivializes asthma.

Shannon Briggs Statement: “We all know Dr. Klitschko holds a PHD in P.E, as he and his publicist remind us all the time. What many people don’t know is Klitschko holds a much more important distinction, as an Ambassador for UNESCO (United Nations Educational and Cultural Organization). Vitali Klitschko has disgraced this very important post with his ignorant and dangerous remarks about asthma not being a deadly disease and just a good excuse. Any real Doctor and certainly any educated member of UNESCO would know that over 300 million men, women and children suffer from asthma around the world and over 250,000 of them died last year alone. I apologize to all the parents, children, brothers and sisters of those who died from asthma last year for Vitali’s extremely insensitive and ignorant remarks. I hope what he said doesn’t cause even one child who may need help and treatment from asthma to not seek it due to “The Champ’s” dismissive remarks. UNESCO is about education, improving and saving lives, not about spreading ignorance and potentially endangering lives with misinformation. (more…)
