Golovkin vs. Jacobs: Ryan Martin Eyed For The Undercard

By Steve Kim

On December 16th from the Fantasy Springs Casino in Indio, California, promising lightweight, Ryan 'Blue Chip' Martin halted Yardley Suarez in four rounds to improve to 17-0 (10 KO's).

In 2016, Martin notched four victories and got his career back on track after being bogged down by the problems of SMS Promotions the year before.

So what's in store for 2017?

"I am pretty close on finalizing a deal with Tom Loeffler for Ryan to return on the undercard of (Gennady) Golovkin-(Danny) Jacobs. We tentatively plan to have him in a step up bout with a chance to appear on the pay-per-view telecast," said his manager Timothy VanNewhouse to


"He begins his training camp today at The Summit in Big Bear, California. Where he’ll spend half the time with Abel Sanchez and the other half with his head coach Delguyd in Cleveland. I’m grateful Abel is offering him such a unique training environment as he continues to develop as one of the sports most rising prospects."
Martin would tell - “I really love the atmosphere. It's beautiful here. Everything is all in one place, the steam room, sauna, ice bath, video room, and a gym without distractions. I feel real focused up here. I plan to make the best of my time with conditioning and sparring and I’m glad my team has put this together for me."
"We really never know what to expect from day-to-day. The routines change daily on the white board. But basically, our workouts are old school, with a lot of body weight exercises, stretching and running".

Could be good for an HBO freeview before the P4P. As for the PPV telecast, 1. I've never heard of this dude, and 2. if they round out the undercard with him, depending on his and Usyk's opponent, Loeffler may…
