Vanes Martirosyan Releases Urgent Statement
By Special Report on Doghouse Boxing (March 18, 2011)
Undefeated junior middleweight Vanes "The Nightmare" Martirosyan (28-0 17KOs) is getting an unexpected taste of the full middleweight limit for tomorrow's fight versus Mexico's Bladimir Hernandez (18-4 16KOs).

The fight was scheduled for a contracted weight of 156 lbs. Team Martirosyan received a call this morning informing them that the Mexican can't make 156 but could make 158. Martirosyan quickly accepted and shortly afterwards Team Martirosyan received another call saying Hernandez couldn't make 158 and that the fight would have to be at the full middleweight limit of 160.

The Armenian came to fight and that's what he intends to do. The California based fighter released the following statement:

"I traveled all the way to Canada to fight. A lot of fans out here have been telling me they are coming to the fight. I don't want to let them down. We were supposed to fight at 156 and now we aren't sure if this guy can even make 160. The 'Nightmare' came to fight and now I'm going to do be making my middleweight debut."
