Meet Edward Majian

"My name is Edward S. Majian, founder and president of SARTONK, Originator of the Modern Boxing Belt. My grandfather, Ardash Sahaghian, is the original designer of the iconic belts awarded to champions, the first of which was commissioned as far back as the late 1970s. It was he who transformed what were the flatter, two-dimensional belts into the sculptural relief, three-dimensional pieces you see today."
