Martirosyan Blasts “The Steak Eater,” Claims He’ll Beat GGG
Vanes Martirosyan is hungry for an upset on May 5th, when he faces WBC, IBF, IBO, WBA middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin.
With the fight signed and set for the StubHub Center in Carson California with less than a month till fight night, the man who is replacing Canelo Alvarez plans to fight GGG straight on.
“I’m not afraid of Gennady. I’m psyched to fight him. This is why I became a fighter. I’m not the only one taking this fight on short notice,” Martirosyan said this week.
“Everyone has a soft spot. I’ll find his. I have no fear. We are going to war — Mexican Style. Two trains colliding.”
Martirosyan is not only looking to bring the fight on May 5th, he also decided to bring some shade towards the man he’s replacing, Canelo Alvarez.
“I don’t run like the guy who pretended to eat a bad steak. Let’s see how Gennady reacts to a fighter who doesn’t move away after being hit. Gennady’s chin hasn’t been tested the way I’d like to test it.”
Vanes, who was once Alvarez’ mandatory opponent, feels that Canelo has fear inside of him.
“Canelo is an easier fight than Gennady. Gennady has a fan-friendly style. Canelo ran from my mandatory challenge. That says a lot about him. That tells you everything about him.”
