ESPN2 News Expert Fight Picks Analysis: ESPN2 FNF announcer Teddy Atlas fussed over Dan Goosen promoted Martirosyian’s “bouncy” movement but Vanes “The Nightmare” Martirosyian’s best asset might be the springs in his legs. Many fighters have used bouncing movement effectively including former Martirosyian stable mates Shawn Porter, Amir Khan and Manny Pacquiao who train with Freddie Roach. The 30-year old Martirosyian’s athleticism and blue-chip amateur pedigree liken him him stylistically to Khan with the exception of Martirosyian’s power, which is greater than Khan’s. The 26-year old Mario Lozano proved to be durable but does not have much science to his game with the exception of his sneaky left hook. Final scores read 100-89 on all three cards for the top-10 contender Vanes Martirosyian.
