By Rick Reeno

Eric Gomez, Vice President of Golden Boy Promotions, advised that Vanes Martirosyan (30-0, 19KOs) turned down "the biggest payday of his career, by far" when he rejected a proposal to fight Alfredo Angulo (20-1, 17KOs) in a WBC junior middleweight eliminator on November 5th in Cancun, Mexico. HBO was planning to televise the fight, and the winner would have received a mandatory shot at Saul "Canelo" Alvarez.

"He turned it down. He's off the card. It's a fight the WBC ordered. The money was right. We offered him a good amount of money. We offered him neutral officials, everything. It was going to be in Cancun, HBO was going to televise, but he doesn't want to fight," Gomez told

"This guy is always on your website. He's calling out Angulo and he's calling out Canelo.......saying that he'll slap them when he sees them in person, but when you bark you have to back it up. When Angulo barks, he backs it up. But when this guy barks - he runs away."

[QUOTE=argminasyan]Perro is no slouch and for vanes to beat perro he needs a full camp with Freddie... As it stands now Freddie won't be able to train vanes for nov 5 fight...
