GLENDALE — It might very well be that Art “Lionheart” Hovhannesyan is ready to take the step in his boxing career — a step closer to the spotlight and contender status. Facing what his Glendale Fighting Club camp deemed his toughest opponent yet, Hovhannesyan turned in what was likely the finest bout of his burgeoning career, knocking out the seasoned Adrian Navarrete in 2:21 of the first round of their scheduled six-round 140-pound bout late Thursday night at Commerce Casino.

GLENDALE — It’s been just over eight months since up-and-coming welterweight Vito “Casper” Gasparyan last fought, a span in which quite a bit has transpired. Gasparyan, who formerly trained at the Glendale Fighting Club, has had several fights canceled over the past months, all while putting down roots in a new gym with a new trainer. All systems are go for his latest scheduled fight, however, when the effects of the layoff from actual fighting, good or bad, and his recently formed affiliation with Fortune Gym in Los Angeles will become evident.

In the aftermath of the abrupt cancellation of his fight against Ryan Davis Friday night, local junior middleweight contender Vanes "Nightmare" Martirosyan may not be without a next fight for long. And if all goes according to plan, it will be for bigger stakes and against a much more significant opponent than the lightly regarded Davis, who was scratched from Saturday's card at the Home Depot Center after failing to clear a medical evaluation. According to his uncle and manager, Serge Martirosyan, the unbeaten Glendale native is now waiting on a response from Erislandy Lara as to whether Lara will accept the light middleweight final eliminator bout recently ordered by the World Boxing Council.

With the negotiations for a proposed blockbuster fight between Glendale's own Vanes "Nightmare" Martirosyan and Alfredo Angulo having long since gone cold, it now appears the closest Martirosyan will get to the man known as "Perro" for the foreseeable future is taking on an opponent who once fought Angulo. Martirosyan's next fight is set for Oct. 29, a 10-rounder with Richard Gutierrez at the WinStar Casino in Thackerville, Okla. And, while that news is likely to disappoint those who were hoping to see the unbeaten light middleweight step up to the elite level of competition in the 154-pound division, the hope in Martirosyan's camp is that this will be the final small step toward a big-time title shot and a huge payday.

Vanes “Nightmare” Martirosyan has been chasing Saul Alvarez for more than a year and a half now. To be precise, he's more after the hardware around Alvarez' waste, as Martirosyan's been hovering near the top of the World Boxing Council light middleweight rankings for much of the time since the 22-year old Mexican sensation known as “Canelo” first became the champion in March 2011. Martirosyan (32-0, 20 knockouts), an unbeaten 26-year-old former Olympian out of Glendale who is the No. 2 WBC contender, will become the mandatory challenger for the WBC belt should he defeat current No. 1 contender Erislandy Lara (17-1-1, 11 KOs)
