Vanes Martirosyan believes Canelo Alvarez stands no chance again Gennady Golovkin when the pair finally face off against each other once again later this year.
Golokvin punished the Armenian with some devastating punches during a second-round knockout loss on the weekend, after being drafted in to replace Canelo following a drug suspension for the 27 year old Mexican.
Martirosyan who was entering the ring for the first time in two years, was not expected to pose much of a challenge for the powerful Golovkin, but the dominance shown by GGG on the night was an impressive statement nevertheless.
In is post fight press conference, Martirosyan was quizzed about the advice he would give to Canelo, if he goes ahead and battles Golovkin in their rescheduled rematch, and the upbeat Armenian says the Mexican should run.
“Run, buddy. Run” Martirosyan said.
The Armenian said “The guy hits like a train, every single punch is like a train. You can’t stop the guy. He is a machine.”
“What surprised me is that people say in his last two fights, when he fought Danny [Jacobs] and Canelo, they said he’s declining.
“I said they guy still has an 0 on his record, so why would he be declining?
“As long as he doesn’t have a loss on his record it means he is not declining, it’s just because styles make fights.
“Danny and Canelo came into the fight to go 12 rounds, they come to really win the fight they just wanted to go 12 rounds to show the world they can.
“Danny did a good job. Canelo ran from Gennady. If he had stayed in front of him, he would have been knocked out cold.
