Vanes Martirosyan Fires Back at Team Canelo Comments

By Luis Sandoval

Undefeated Junior Middleweight Vanes Martirosyan is firing back at Team Canelo after Saul Alvarez’s trainer Eddy Reynoso said they would not be interested in a fight with Martirosyan as he was not a big enough draw.

“I’m not a draw but Matthew Hatton is and so is Ryan Rhodes, Alfonso Gomez and Kermit Cintron? The only reason Canelo doesn’t want to fight me or [Erislandy] Lara is because we both will beat Canelo and the WBC did everything to [keep him] away from me for 2 years. Now they’re saying this. Come on man. If they think they could’ve beat me they would’ve fought me a long time ago” Martirosyan would tell BoxingScene.

Martirosyan has long waited for his opportunity to face Canelo but despite being in a mandatory position with the WBC to fight the red headed champion, Martirosyan never got his shot.

He will be fighting for a world title in his next fight against undefeated 2008 Olympian Demetrius Andrade and assures once he wins the belt, he’ll be more than happy to have a showdown with Canelo. Vanes informed he’s even willing to step in with Chavez Jr tomorrow if the weight is too much of an issue with Brian Vera.

“Bob Arum tried to make fight but Canelo’s team always made excuses with the WBC just like they’re doing now by saying I’m not a draw now. I’m fighting for the WBO world title November 9th. There are no excuses on my side after I win this title. You guys will see what fighters I fight next and what a world champion should be doing. If Canelo last 12 rounds with me I’ll give him my purse! And if Vera doesn’t want to fight Chavez because of his weight, I’m ready to fight him this Saturday too even if he weights 190” fired Vanes.

Martirosyan is on a mission to conquer the Junior Middleweight division and he’s willing to take on anybody.

“I’m coming baby, Everyone is going to see why they call me nightmare. I’m ready to fight anyone. Hopefully the title will be enough of a reason for Canelo and others to fight me. I will not duck anyone. I’m ready to give the fans what they deserve. Tune in November 9th on HBO”.

[QUOTE=ddangerous;13797871]I appreciate your style of respectful debate. We just don't seem to agree on anything. Regardless, I respect you as a poster and respect your opinion, mine is just the polar opposite. I really like Peter Quillen's persona, but I…
