  • Boxing: Vic "Raging Bull" Darchinyan Hits Las Vegas!


    East Side Boxing
    May 31 2006

    (Las Vegas, USA: 31st May 2006) Reigning IBF/IBO flyweight world boxing
    champion Vic "Raging Bull" Darchinyan - Australia's only current male
    boxing world champion - has arrived in Las Vegas and intends on making
    a huge impression when he competes for the first time in the famous
    boxing metropolis this coming weekend.

    "My training has been perfect and I am feeling very strong," said
    Darchinyan. "People around the world are going to take notice of me
    when they see my fight this weekend. My opponent Luis Maldonado is
    a very good boxer, but I am still going to knock him out!"

    Considered one of the hottest new stars in world boxing, Vic "Raging
    Bull" Darchinyan will defend his two world titles against undefeated
    28 year-old Mexican Luis Maldonado (33 wins, 0 losses, 1 draw, 25
    knockouts) on a card that will see them as the main support bout to
    one of the world's 'Fights of the Year' in Jose Luis Castillo versus
    Diego Corrales III at the Thomas & Mack Centre in Las Vegas, USA.

    Darchinyan's trainer and three-time world boxing champion Jeff Fenech
    has been pleased with Darchinyan's sparring over the last three weeks.

    "Vic wanted to come to the USA early to get the best sparring possible
    and he has been in awesome form," said Fenech. "We have sparred the
    best boxers available in Los Angeles and Phoenix and I couldn't be
    happier with the way things are going."

    30 year-old Darchinyan, the Armenia born Australian citizen southpaw,
    has an undefeated record of 25 wins, 0 losses and 20 knockouts. In
    his last fight on March 3 at the Chumash Casino Resort in Santa Ynez,
    California in the USA, Darchinyan knocked out IBF mandatory challenger
    Diosdado Gabi from the Philippines spectacularly with one punch in
    round 8.

    Darchinyan is promoted by well-known American Gary Shaw, who guides
    the careers of some of the best active boxing talent today.

    The Darchinyan versus Maldonado fight will be televised live
    into Australia from 11am this Sunday 4th June 2006 by Main Event
    Pay-Per-View, Fox Sports Pub & Club Vision and Sky Channel.
