Darchinyan, Mbamba Make Weight, Ready To Rumble

By Chris LaBate

IBO bantamweight champion Vic Darchinyan (36-3-1, 27KOs), and challenger Evans Mbamba (18-1, 9KOs), had no issues with making the weight for their scheduled clash on Saturday night in Yerevan’s Karen Demirchyan Sports and Concert Complex. The challenger came in light, at 53 kilograms [116.8-pounds], while Darchinyan was 53.5-kilograms [117.9-pounds].

“I’ve waited 2 years to face Darchinyan, and now my dream will finally be fulfilled. I’ve gone to great lengths to prepare myself for the fight. I’m ready to make boxing history," Mbamba said.

Darchinyan replied - “Mbamba’s crashing defeat will be something to go down in history. I’ve been training for 16 weeks and I am definitely in better shape. No matter how strong my opponent is, I’ll be the one to send him to the floor. I’m sure the show will be a magnificent one."

Glad to see that there are still non-Armenian Vic fans on here ! Medved > it will be broadcasted on ShantTV, don't know if any international channel will broadcast it aswell, though. Maybe they will put an online legal link…

Vic got robbed against Lowblow Mares and got hit with 40 low blows. A prime and motivated Vic owns anyone in that division. I wanna see him train hard and be motivated then go and own Agbeko and Mares and…
