Darchinyan Demanding The Winner of Vazquez-Marquez

By Rick Reeno

BoxingScene.com was advised by promoter Gary Shaw that WBC/WBA super flyweight champion Vic Darchinyan is pushing for a fight against the the winner of the fourth fight between Israel Vazquez and Rafael Marquez, which takes place on May 22 at Staples Center in California. Darchinyan moves back up to bantamweight on May 20 when he takes on Eric Barcelona for the vacant IBO title. Contrary to published reports, the Barcelona fight will not be televised by Showtime in any fashion.

After Barcelona, Darchinyan plans to return in the August on Showtime. A fight against Marquez or Vazquez at featherweight would require a dangerous leap in weight. He would go up from a limit of 118 [for Barcelona] to a limit of 126-pounds. Shaw tells BoxingScene that Darchinyan knows the risks involved and still wants the fight.

"He asked me to get him the winner of Vazquez-Marquez. What can I say, he wants the fight. He likes that fight," Shaw said to BoxingScene.com.
