HyeFighter Vanes Martirosyan won over Ishe Smith by majority decision at MGM grand in Vegas, after Smith was knockdown twice Saturday night.
The entertaining and pivotal win over a former IBF World champion and WBA contender may place Vanes back in contention for a title of his own. Smith, a hardened veteran of a fighter with an iron chin, put up a strong fight in his hometown, but the two knockdowns administered by The Nightmare, particularly a powerful one in the 8th round, swung the judges votes decisively to Vanes.
Full recap and video coming soon. Hyefighters.com congratulates Vanes and wishes him many more wins and greater achievements.
