Golovkin vs. Martirosyan Undercard Coming Together

By Steve Kim

With the fight between unified middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin and Vanes Martirosyan set for the StubHub Center in Carson, California on May 5th, and Roman 'Chocolatito' Gonzalez slated as the co-feature, now the other parts of the undercard are now coming together.

Tim Van Newhouse of Split T Management advised BoxingScene.com on Friday - "I've been working closely with Tom (Loeffler) on wrapping up opponents for both Ryan Martin and Brian Ceballo for May 5th StubHub. Martin will officially be at 140 moving forward."

After struggling at lightweight back in September versus Luis Rojo, Martin looked much stronger versus Luis Eduardo Florez on March 27th scoring a third round stoppage at the Avalon in Hollywood, California.

"I sent out letters last week notifying the world sanctioning bodies that Ryan plans to campaign as a junior welterweight. While we wait for them to recognize his transition into the new division, he will stay active by returning on the Golovkin undercard,"explained Van Newhouse.

"Most importantly, I just want Ryan to stay active and continue to develop some new skills while being under the watchful eye of Abel Sanchez. If Ryan's progressing in the gym, my job gets much easier on planning bigger things with Tom. We are working on some big stuff for him in the fall".

Ceballo made his pro debut on that same card at the Avalon which was staged by 360 Promotions. Ceballo stopped Luis Longoria in one

Van Newhouse stated,"Brian is just anxious to get back under the bright lights. I'm not sure he understands the magnitude of how big the shows are just yet, but he was very impressed with his debut in Hollywood. He's in for a special treat being able to fight underneath Gennady and in front of the HBO executives.

"When you look at Ryan's development early on he was afforded the same opportunities. I sat ringside with Peter Nelson(of HBO Sports) when Ryan made his pro-debut. I made it a big priority for him to get big exposure and be apart of some of the sports best attractions. Few prospects get to develop in such a way. These kids will have a bright future."
