Undefeated 28-0 Armenian boxer and 2004 Olympian Vanes “Nightmare” Martirosyan and Legio (http://www.legiogear.com) have come to an agreement making Martirosyan a Legio-sponsored athlete.
“We’re very excited,” states Araz Araradian, co-founder of Legio, “It’s a privilege for us to have the opportunity to partner with a champion like Vanes. As a top tier athlete, an undefeated boxing sensation, and an Armenian, Vanes represents all the best of our culture and we’re proud to have him as a part of theLegio family.” Araradian adds, “As we grow as a company, it will be important for us to have these partnerships which help us to support great Armenians doing great things.”
Legio, a Los Angeles-based apparel company, is a lifestyle brand which features Armenian themes and legends such as David of Sassoun, St. Vartan, Hayk Nahapet and the Armenian crest. “We are trying to give Armenians worldwide a way of exhibiting their cultural pride through their fashion choices,” says Andreh Haftvani, co-founder of Legio, “To have someone like Vanes representing our brand gives us the opportunity to reach more Armenians around the world.”
Martirosyan recently fought in Yankee Stadium and won a unanimous decision against previously undefeated Joe Greene. He will be fighting Bladimir Hernandez in Montreal on March 19, 2011.
