Vanes: After Saul Roman, I Want Sergio Martinez or Cotto
By David "Los Gatos" Rosenberg
Vanes Martirosyan faces Saul Roman this Saturday at Staples Center in Los Angeles, CA on the Julio Cesar Chavez - Sebastian Zbik undercard. The winner of the fight will walk away with the WBC junior middleweight silver belt and will be in position for a big fight.
Over the past few weeks BoxingScene.com has ran several articles that have stated that Julio Cesar Chavez will most likely face Miguel Cotto or Sergio Martinez assuming he gets past Sebastian Zbik on Saturday.
Martirosyan wants to make it clear that he would love to face whichever fighter doesn't end up fighting Chavez.
"I read Chavez is going to fight Cotto or Martinez. I want to fight who ever is left out. Either Cotto or Sergio. It doesn't matter which one."
Martirosyan knocked out Bladimir Hernandez in 2 rounds in March and is looking to put on another impressive performance on Saturday. Another impressive performance may enough to get Martirosyan the high profile fight he is looking for.
"I don't think Cotto will fight me but I think Sergio will and I'm ready for both of them. Saturday night everyone will see (that I am ready)."

[QUOTE=dubjab;10623448]haha, Vanes embarrassed and outclassed Chavez in sparring. He will make Cotto look silly. Martinez is a different story. That one I'd like to see.[/QUOTE] I'm not high on Vanes considering he deserved to lose to Kassim Ouma. I think…Comment by argminasyan on 05-31-2011
