In a series of entries on his Twitter account, Martirosyan wrote this on Thursday: “Now [it's] time to focus on Saturday night, then we focus on this Lara fight. … Guys, there is no ifs. I said yes to the Lara fight. Already 100 percent. I’m [on] board. I just wanna focus on Saturday night, then we get back to Lara.”
Martirosyan is scheduled to face Ryan Davis (24-9-3, 9 KOs) in what should be a walkover on Saturday night at the Home Depot Center in Carson, Calif., in the untelevised portion of the Nonito Donaire-Jeffrey Mathebula junior featherweight unification bout that headlines an HBO card.
“I’m waiting to see Vanes on Friday so we can talk about it and see what he wants to do,” saids Top Rank’s Carl Moretti. “It came as a surprise to us.”
“We’ll see what’s the best thing to do for Lara’s career, but he is willing to fight anybody,” said Lara’s manager Luis DeCubas Jr.. “We have to see what Al (Haymon) advises. We brought him in as an adviser [last week] and now we’ll see where we go.”
