Hot, unbeaten super welterweight prospect Vanes Martirosyan has acquired a multi purpose gym in his home town of Glendale, California. Located at 747 Salem St, right off of famed San Fernando Road, Main Events Sports Club trains professional and amateur boxers as well as mixed martial arts fighters. Kickboxing and wrestling lessons and personal training and fitness classes are offered at the modern facility that features a variety of weight training equipment, a boxing ring and a cage for MMA sparring as well as countless heavy and speed bags.
“I have always wanted to have my own gym,” said Martirosyan, who represented US Olympic boxing team at the XXVlll Olympiad in Athens, Greece in the summer of 2004:” The gym was available and the price was right so we bought it. We want to help build future champions.”
Ever since turning professional in 2005 Martirosyan has terrorized super welterweight division and amassed a perfect record of twenty eight wins with seventeen of them coming via a knock out. Vanes stopped Willie Lee within three rounds last December in Youngstown, Ohio thus earning a vacant WBO super welterweight title. With the help of one of the top trainers in boxing today, Freddie Roach and strength and conditioning Coach Alex Ariza, 24 year old Martirosyan is shooting for the sky.
Albert Keshishyan, Martirosyan’s first coach, the one that trained him when he was a young boy, is also a big part of the club; he is offering boxing lessons to youngsters as well as adults. For more information and a complete schedule of classes check out the club’s website: www.maineventgym.com.
The only question remains is if this new venture would hinder a successful boxing career of Vanes Martirosyan who is scheduled to go to Philippines to help his coach Freddie Roach and a pound for pound king Manny Pacquiao to get ready for his upcoming bout with Antonio Margarito. Wise man once said that the best way to know your craft is to teach it. Vanes is adhering to that philosophy by offering private lessons and his personal knowledge to any body that seeks it.
“I am very fortunate today! I got to train at MainEvent Gym with Vanes Martirosyan!,” said Ando Dermejian, a mixed martial arts fighter:” If you guys want to get the best training and get into great shape! GO TO MAINEVENT GYM AND SIGN UP RIGHT NOW!”
