Middleweight boxer Vanes Martirosyan was reportedly arrested earlier this month after headbutting his wife in their Los Angeles home.
According to TMZ Sports, the Armenian-American fighter was arrested for felony domestic violence the morning after an argument on September 15 which allegedly escalated to the point that Martirosyan "grabbed his wife by the arm and is believed to have headbutted her square in the face."
The injuries police reportedly discovered on Martirosyan's wife when they arrived on the scene in Glendale were "a bruise on her arm and a messed-up nose."
After a police report was taken, Martirosyan, 33, was arrested and subsequently released later the same day after bond was set at $50,000, per TMZ Sports.
Martirosyan had come in as a last-minute replacement following the cancellation of the Kazakh's rematch with Canelo Alvarez, and he was convincingly beaten in California as Golovkin successfully defended his WBA (Super), WBC, IBF, and IBO middleweight titles.
