Darchinyan Hungry For Belts, Heading To 122 in 2012

By Adrian Warren

Hungry boxing champ Vic Darchinyan believes he can win a record tally of world title belts by the end of next year.

IBO bantamweight champion Darchinyan is gunning for title belt No.9 next month when he fights Panama's WBA bantamweight super champion Anselmo Moreno in California.

The big-hitting southpaw couldn't find room on a table to accommodate all of his belts on Friday, when it was announced the Moreno fight would be shown on free-to-air television station 7mate.

While the proliferation of organisations and the legitimacy of some of the title belts of the less recognised ones has made records hard to claim, Darchinyan is convinced he is closing on one.

"I think the most belts, Oscar de la Hoya won 10 world titles, I have eight belts, I am chasing more," Darchinyan said on Friday.

"I'd love to have three more belts, that's my goal, that's what I'm going for.

"I want to have three more belts and I become No.1 in the history of boxing.

"After retirement I want to be someone that people are going to talk about, remember me, everyone is going to mention my name."

Darchinyan thinks he can attain the landmark by the end of 2012 by beating Moreno and having two more title bouts next year.

He is determined to move up to super bantamweight in 2012, but could stay at bantamweight after the Moreno fight if there is a chance to unify the division.

"I will go to super bantamweight 100% next year," Darchinyan said.

"If before I can fight unification of the bantamweight world titles I can collect all belts here and become undisputed world champion, I'd love to do it.

"If someone challenges me for a unification, I will wait, if not I'll move further up in weight.

"Jorge Arce has become a world super bantamweight world champion.

"When I fought him the first time, he told me 'I want a rematch with you'.

"I told him 'anytime you have a belt, I'd love to fight you'."

Darchinyan was excited at the potential to broaden his fan base and expand acknowledgement of his achievements by fighting on free-to-air.

"People don't know about me in Australia, they will see me on free-to-air and they will start to talk about me," Darchinyan said.

"It's nice to be free-to-air here and I'm looking forward to knocking out my opponent.

"I'm happy he's never been knocked out, because I'm going to knock him out.

"I'm very focused for this fight and I'm going to show my best."

ol' Vic is on a downward slide -- has been for awhile -- has to be very careful these days who he gets in there with -- has significnatly slowed up on offense and defense -- but still is interesting…

[QUOTE=DocG;11374028]:lol1::lol1:BEAST???........Bring on Donaire!!!!:lol1::lol1:[/QUOTE] Just because Donaire is his kryptonite does not mean that Darchinyan is not superman. Besides, Donaire needs to grow some balls himself and go for (literally, physically) bigger fish.
