He showed some power as he scored his two knockouts in a three fight span over Vineash Rungea and Morris Chule.

That fight set off a streak of ten in a row which included wins over Jovann Jones (9-4); Jorge Marquez (3-0); fifty-six fight veteran Anthony Martinez; Jonathan Ramirez (5-2) and Jonathan Bobadilla (4-2).

Martyniouk suffered his first professional defeat in his last bout as he dropped a six round unanimous decision to Khadaphi Proctor on November 27, 2010 in Oakland, California.

Martyniouk’s opponent will be announced shortly.
