VAN NUYS - Sitting on a chair, just outside his new “home,” Vanes Martirosyan reflected on his past, his dedication to boxing and his future as a possible champion. Seven times while sitting down and answering questions from reporters during Tuesday's media session at Ten Goose Boxing Gym, the Glendale resident talked about giving “100%.” He mentioned his stint with Top Rank Promotions, which included 32 consecutive wins that started his career, but ended shortly after Demetrius Andrade handed Martirosyan a decision loss in November in the local's first-ever world championship opportunity.

Edgar Melik-Stepanyan Boxer William Abelyan wanted his opportunity, and he got it. Now, it's up to the 1997 Glendale High graduate to prove he belongs in the 126-pound featherweight division. The confident fighter believes he does, as he brashly dubs himself "The Conqueror." Abelyan challenges his toughest opponent today in his first major title bout. He'll face World Boxing Organization champion -- and hometown favorite -- Scott Harrison at noon PDT at Glasgow's Braehead Arena in Scotland.

GLENDALE — According to the game plan publicly laid out by his camp on Thursday, Glendale-based light middleweight Vanes "Nightmare" Martirosyan will go from his longest-ever layoff between fights to the quickest turnaround since the earliest stages of his nearly six-year-old professional career. After facing Bladimir Hernandez in Montreal on March 19, Martirosyan will be right back in action just 35 days later to face Saul Roman for the vacant World Boxing Council Silver light middleweight title in Thackerville, Okla.

GLENDALE — The following are odds and ends from the local sports scene.   SANCHEZ, BUCS CAN’T AGREE With less than three weeks until Spring Training begins, Freddy Sanchez is still without a contract. Sanchez, 30, a former Burbank High and Glendale Community College standout, and the Pittsburgh Pirates still haven’t worked out a deal for next season. There was a noon deadline on Friday for agreements to be made with players eligible for arbitration before athletes and clubs are required to exchange arbitration figures.

GLENDALE — In what had to be nothing short of a boon of encouragement and validation to Vanes "Nightmare" Martirosyan, Top Rank Promotions CEO Bob Arum recently made a pitch to HBO for a March 12 fight between the undefeated Glendale boxer and one of the biggest names in the light middleweight division, World Boxing Assn. champion Miguel Cotto. Unfortunately for Martirosyan's hopes of landing a long-sought fight with the high-profile Puerto Rican, HBO declined to televise the card, according to a report Thursday from ESPN's Dan Rafael, which was confirmed by Martirosyan's manager Steven Feder.

MARTIROSYAN COULD FIGHT COTTO With rumors swirling around the boxing world that a much-hyped rematch between Miguel Cotto and Antonio Margarito could be called off, undefeated Glendale boxer Vanes Martirosyan's name has surfaced as a possible replacement for Margarito, according to multiple boxing websites. "Getting someone to step in and replace Margarito on short notice will be much easier than thought. Two names instantly stand out, those being Vanes Martirosyan and Pawel Wolak . Both are in shape," Jack Hirsch wrote on boxingnewsonline.net.

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)
