Santa Yanez- Glendale’s Art “The Lion Heart” Hovhannisyan(14-0,8KO”S) knocked out previously unbeaten lightweight from Albuquerque, New Mexico, Archie Ray Marquez(12-1,8KO’S) in front of a packed house at The Chumash Resort and Casino on Friday night. Scheduled for eight rounds the fight was an opening bout of live Showtime telecast dubbed Showtime The New Generation. Not known for his knock out power Hovhannisyan thrilled fans by dropping Marquez four times en route to a sixth round knock out.

 “He is twelve and o, undefeated,” said Hovhannisyan at the post fight interview:” I heard he got hard punches, but after a while he got tired. I know if I hit him with straight punches, he is going down. So, I do that.”
