Stan Martyniouk ready to push on, eyes NABF title

RINGSIDE 02/02/2019

Stan Martyniouk (18-2 4KOs) is a super lightweight, who is currently training between San Carlos, CA (Silicon Valley) with SNAC System to get advice from Victor Conte as well as train with Remi Korchemni and Oakland, CA with Kris “Lightning” Lopez at Lightning’s Boxing Club.

Martyniouk started boxing at age thirteen in the Sacramento, CA area, he raised in an area entitled Antelope, Ca. He had over a 100 amateur fights and at one point was ranked #2 in the country. Martyniouk won three international gold medals and a bronze at the 2007 National Golden Gloves. He also was a member of Team USA Boxing and competed at the 2005 World Cup in Moscow, Russia

Martyniouk turned professional in October of 2007 in Oroville, Ca. Martyniouk fought ten times from 2007-2010 with bouts taking place at the Oracle Arena in Oakland, Ca and The Home Depot Center (now Dignity Health Sports Center) in Carson, Ca.

Martyniouk moved to Southern California and trained with Joe Goossen during this time. Martyniouk’s first career setback was a loss to Khadaphi Proctor in a bout Martyniouk lost after being dropped twice, the bout was a mess as Martyniouk was not even warmed up before fighting.

After his loss at the Oracle Arena, Martyniouk’s activity dropped greatly as he trained with Virgil Hunter sparring all the stars such as Andre Berto, Amir Khan and many others, but just struggled to get fight dates.

Martyniouk fought just four times in four years from 2010 to 2014 as he stayed in shape, but seemingly was not getting opportunities. An inopportune loss to Ivan Najera in Studio City, Ca on August 9th, 2014, in a bout that ringside writers almost unanimously scored for Martyniouk was one more frustrating situation as the decorated amateur now had two losses.

In 2015, Martyniouk began working with Minnesota based promoter Tony Grygelko and his Seconds Out Promotions. Martyniouk got four fights with the promotion over three years, before his time with the promotion ran its course. Martyniouk was grateful for all that they did for him.

Martyniouk’s two last fights have been early stoppages in Mexico as he is simply trying to get in-ring time so he can be ready for stepping up against a top fighter in the near future. Martyniouk has a good record and is now looking to fight the bout of his life against the highest caliber opponent willing to face him.

Martyniouk has been one of Terence Crawford’s main sparring partners for Crawford’s past three training camps as well.

“I am in the prime of my career, I have never felt better, I am just one of these people who never abused my body, and now I feel that I can beat anyone.”

“The best fighter in the world — Terence Crawford, has brought me into his camp multiple times, I think that should tell you that I am a fighter that is worthy of a shot against anyone in the top ten or top fifteen of any sanctioning body.”

“My goal is to fight for a title. I’d like to fight for a belt like the NABF to prove that I deserve a world title shot. I have a great team, and great support I am excited.”

“I am not in a position to call anyone out since people can look at my record and not know the whole story, but just know that I really want an opportunity, a chance to show that I am one of the best.

“Until I get that chance, it is hard for me to call someone out, since it just doesn’t look right.

“Just know I am training hard with “Lightning” Lopez in Oakland, listening to the advice of Victor Conte and SNAC System as well as doing my track workouts with Remi Korchemny.”
