"Junior is in top condition and ready to fight for the world title," he said. "The same goes for Vanes. This is the best he's looked in a long time."
On June 4, Chavez Jr will challenge WBC Middleweight Champion Sebastian Zbik at the STAPLES Center in Los Angeles. On the undercard, Martirosyan will take on Saul Roman in an eliminator bout.
