Vanes: I Accept The WBC's Eliminator, I Can Stop Lara!

By Luis Sandoval

As earlier reported by BoxingScene, the WBC has mandated a purse bid on July 27th for a fight between Vanes Martirosyan and Erislandy Lara for a final WBC elimination bout.

Recently Vanes had rejected an offer to face Lara because he wanted contractual stipulation that if he was victorious, heíd be able to fight current champion Saul ďCaneloĒ Alvarez. This time however, Vanes is on board 100% regardless of anything.

BoxingScene spoke to Vanes who said he was 100% on board with the fight and was happy to get the opportunity.

BoxingScene.com: Thoughts on the WBC mandating a purse bid for a fight with him and Lara:

I just talked to my manager and he told me about it. I didnít know about it, I was sleeping since Iím resting for tomorrow for the weigh in. He woke me up and told me they ordered the Lara fight again and I told him you know what, 100% I want it no matter what. Iíve been texting him not to say anything, that I want the fight 100%.

BoxingScene.com: Did the WBC give you the request of putting on paper you will face Canelo Next:

I didnít get anything like that but Iím pretty sure something will be put on paper. And they keep saying final eliminator so everybodyís seeing that already and itís written everywhere so weíll see what happens with that but as far as the fight, 100% I want the fight. I think I can beat Lara and I think I can stop him also.

BoxingScene.com: Happy about getting a shot against Erislandy Lara even though he isnít one of the bigger names in the division:

100% Iím happy because I think the fight between me and Lara will determine who the best 154lb [fighter] is not counting [Floyd] Mayweather and [Miguel] Cotto because theyíre the top dogs. But for all the young guys and all the guys who have titles, I think the winner of me and Lara will show the world who the real best 154 pounder is. The guys who have the titles donít really mean much because they arenít fighting anybody.

BoxingScene.com: Thoughts on Laraís performance against Freddie Hernandez:

I see that he doesnít take pressure very well and doesnít take body shots very well. So I think Iím going to put a lot of pressure on him. I didnít see much punch power actually in his power. I think he tries to fight forward so Iím going to take him to school. I think he was fighting the amateur way, trying to get points by getting points and running away but Iím going to take him out man. I got a good game plan for Lara. Iíve had it for a long time. Before the WBC didnít want to put it on paper which kind of made us upset but now, Iím taking the fight no matter what.

BoxingScene.com: Worries about having a future fight planned before heading into his fight this Saturday against Ryan Davis. Nervous about what happened to Ortiz happening to him:

I mean Victor was fighting Josesito Lopez man. I know Josesito from the amateurs. He actually beat me when we fought at 122 or 126 pounds I think. Josesito beat me in the amateurs and I sparred with Victor and I dropped Victor so I knew that was a tough fight. I donít really know much about Ryan Davis so I mean, itís not going to put a lot pressure on me. If anything it makes me happier knowing I get a bigger fight after this. So I have to be fast and get the guy out of there so I can focus on the next one.

I hope this is true but I can not help but not believe a word Vanes says and even more unbelievable is people still listen to what he has to say & take it as gospel. I refuse to believe this guy until its official and I see Vanes in that ring opposite Lara & that bell rings.

Finally! For quite awhile this guy has been running his mouth but has yet to fight top comp. well, excluding that questionable win against a vet at the tale end of his career. Lets hope this fight happens and its an entertaining one.

Who really cares about this fight. There's so many other better fighters than vanes out there, this guy ain't near world class. Easy win for lara.

I' bet winner or loser doesn't get Alvarez.. no way GBP goes for it...both getting screwed over, like Ajose @ 140, #1 for a year...

I'll believe it after the final presser. Just don't see this **** happening.
