Ambunda's Trainer Confident Darchinyan Can Be Upset

As previously reported on BoxingScene.com, Paulus ‘The Rock’ Ambunda of Namibia has been named as a possible opponent for IBO bantamweight world champion Vic Darchinyan. According to online reports, the fight has been provisionally set for September 3 in Armenia.

Nestor Tobias, Ambunda’s trainer, however said that the fight had not yet been agreed on, although he conceded that they were still in negotiations.

“That fight is still unconfirmed, we have not yet agreed on that fight,” Tobias said.
“They contacted me about the possibility of a fight but we still need to sort things out,” he added.

The 35-year-old Armenian is a former WBA, WBO and IBF world champion, in the super flyweight and flyweight divisions, and is currently the IBO champion. He has a record of 40 fights, 36 wins, 3 losses and one draw. Tobias said he was not worried about the record of Darchinyan, who is popularly known as the Raging Bull.

“The record is just numbers, besides he used to be a good fighter but he is losing more fights lately,” Tobias said.

“Ambunda is young and still going strong and so I think he would stand a good chance,” he continued.

The 30-year-old Ambunda is unbeaten after 15 fights and his most recent fight was against Tanzanian Emilio Norfat which he won on a 12th-round knockout.

Darchinyan’s last fight was in April this year when he beat Yonnhy Perez in Los Angeles, United States, with a technical knockout in the second round.
