If true, that would be a bit absurd. Martirosyan has fought his whole career below middleweight. He also hasn't fought since May of 2016, a fight that he lost. This would be a one sided blowout in my opinion, not to mention the long list of possible opponents that would be better opposition than Martirosyan. Either way, I guess a payday for him would be good and he wouldn't have the pressure of expectations.
