Aww shaddup

Radam G says:

Nes Mart is just a B-side pugilist. The blaming game is of no value. Even in this era of five to six major alphabet-sanction organizations, V-Ma will probably not win one of those A-S O's title belts. Holla!

brownsugar says:

Agreed, Marirosyan should be glad to be signed by any major promoter. It's not like people are signing petitions to see his next fight.

Skibbz says:

Still can't knock him for working. He puts in the hours, but unfortunately for him he's not the most likeable person and his name doesn't exactly stay in your head for long..

Radam G says:

Part of boxing and making that moolah blow is having a name that catches da butts and eyeballs. Vanes Martirosyan has indeed been improperly promoted by himself. Holla!

Skibbz says:

But what can he do? Short of changing his name the only thing I can think up in a hot sec is Marti the Martian… Sounds more like a cartoon character than a fighter. He's certainly no Alien either..

Right. I understand where he's coming from but he's also a boring guy with no charm. These athletes need to understand its show business. He lives in Hollywood, right? Go take some acting classes! Do something, become interesting!

Kid diamond had the right idea.

Radam G says:

Nes ” The Boxing Detective” Mart would work, reminiscent of an old television episode about a Detective Elliot Ness. Holla!

Radam G says:

“Kid Diamond” brought da BLING-BLING! Holla!

I have a feeling Vanes M is going to have tougher fights without Roach and Top rank.
He will be treated as a stepping stone with a semi-name and he will have to fight outta that position, IMO.

Skibbz says:

I see where you're coming from flacks, but it's not bad news for the Martian. Tougher fights might offer him a better opportunity to prove he is what he thinks he is. Maybe he just needed space to grow his wings away from Wild Card and TR. Still not buying it though.

The Shadow says:

Vanny Martian?

I was thinking Rigo should do that. Just change it to Rigo Dee. Or Diaw. Or something. People, including himself, mispronounce too much.

The Commish says:

Funny. I now am finding myself calling Vanes Martirosyan “The Martian.” Nice going Skibbz.

Skibbz says:

Ha… my pleasure Commissioner.. Who's gonna get the word out to Vanes?

Elie Seckbach. He's always at that gym, dangling about.

Or tell Goosen trainer Samson, who claims to be founder of both the Crips and Bloods, uncle of Oprah, cousin of Barack, son of Nicky Barnes, cousin of Jay-Z, close personal friend with Arnold Schwarzenegger, and the only real threat to the Klitschko.

Either way, he needs to know!
