According to Vanes Martirosyan's uncle Serge Martirosyan, the WBC purse bid for the rematch between Erislandy Lara and Vanes Martirosyan was won by Golden Boy on Friday for $410,000. The rematch was mandated to decide the No. 1 contender to the 154-pound belt held by Saul "Canelo"Alvarez after their original WBC eliminator in Nov. ended in a technical draw.

Martirosyan (32-0-1, 20 KOs) mounted an early lead before Lara (17-1-2, 11 KOs) came on late. In the ninth, an accidental clash of heads caused a nasty gash over Martirosyan's left eye, causing referee Jay Nady to stop the bout. The result was a split draw, with one judge shading it for Lara, 87-84, one scoring it for Martirosyan, 86-85, with the final card even at 86-86.

The original fight was carried by HBO as a Boxing After Dark, but it's unclear where the second encounter will land.

Hope Lara doesn't leave his balls at home and comes to fight. All that running and dirty tactics were a disgrace, at least Vanes came ready to go to war and give the fans what they wanted, without the dirty tactics. Vanes' footwork is a lot better than what he showed in their first fight. If ...
