Very good fight.
Can you imagine how great boxing would be if anyone above 118 fought the type of fights vic d does consistently? Spectacular.

Even the Kirilov's and Rojas' are impressive titlists among the rest. The only guy that comes close to that type of run recently would be Froch and he hasn't faced such top competition for as long and as consistently.
The fact he is 35 or 36, and still facing P4P fighters and young, undefeated champs is amazing. Really doesn't get the recognition and respect he has earned. Among the 'warriors' of the sport, Darchinyan is one of the few guys to always back up his talk by fighting the best of the best, fight after fight.
Man, I really hope he wins this. Don't know whether he has enough left anymore and Yamanaka is a good fighter with excellent speed, good counters and general boxing skill and is a hard puncher too and very tall compared to Vic. Will be hard.
