Vanes Martirosyan of Glendale signs with Goossen Tutor Promotions

Vanes Martirosyan, a world-class junior middleweight from Glendale, has signed a promotional contract with Goossen Tutor Promotions after fighting the first eight years of his pro career with Top Rank Inc.

“I’m really excited about signing with Goossen Tutor Promotions,” said the 27-year-old Martirosyan, a 2004 U.S. Olympian. “I see a very bright future ahead of us.”

Martirosyan in November had his first shot at a world title but was defeated by Demetrius Andrade via split-decision.

“Having tasted defeat for the first time really woke me up and I never want that bitter taste in my mouth again,” said Martirosyan, 33-1-1 with 21 knockouts.

Promoter Dan Goossen is stoked to have acquired Martirosyan.

“This is a very exciting signing for our company,” he said. “What we look for in our fighters is talent and the desire and willingness to overcome every obstacle, and we know Vanes has all the tools to do just that.”
Martirosyan is slated to make his Goossen Tutor Promotions debut on a March 21 card at Morongo Resort & Casino in Cabazon (on ESPN2). His opponent is to be determined.
