Vic Darchinyan: I Hopes Mares Wins, So I Can Retire Him!

By Keith Idec

Vic Darchinyan hopes he, too, gets another shot at Abner Mares.

Darchinyan said on a conference call Wednesday that he wants them both to win their fights Dec. 3 in Anaheim, Calif., so that he can “destroy” Mares in their own bantamweight championship rematch. Mares will face Joseph Agbeko in another rematch Dec. 3, immediately after Showtime’s co-featured fight that’ll pit Darchinyan (37-3-1, 27 KOs) against Panama’s Anselmo Moreno (31-1-1, 11 KOs) in a 12-round fight for Moreno’s WBA bantamweight crown (he’s the WBA’s super champion at 118 pounds).

Mares defeated Darchinyan by split decision in their 12-round, bantamweight championship match last Dec. 11 in Tacoma, Wash. Darchinyan dropped the unbeaten Mares in the second round of that fight, but was knocked down during the seventh round as well.

Mares (22-0-1, 13 KOs), of Montebello, Calif., and Ghana’s Agbeko (28-3, 22 KOs) will fight again two weeks from Saturday because Mares’ 12-round majority decision victory over Agbeko on Aug. 13 in Las Vegas was mired in controversy due to Mares’ repeated low blows and a poor performance by referee Russell Mora.

“They gave Abner Mares a rematch with Agbeko,” Darchinyan said. “Why? It [should’ve been] me. He punched me in the [groin] all the way. From the sixth round, I couldn’t even breathe. And he didn’t give me a rematch. They gave [Agbeko] a rematch. Why? I’m looking for Abner Mares [to] beat Agbeko and I want to knock him out in the ring and send him into retirement.”

Referee Robert Howard did deduct a point from Mares during the fourth round of his fight against Darchinyan, also for low blows.

 Darchinyan previously lost a close unanimous decision to Agbeko in their bantamweight title fight in July 2009. The brash Armenian southpaw wants to fight Agbeko again as well, though he clearly is bothered more by his loss to Mares.

“I would love to fight, after this fight, the winner of Agbeko and Mares,” Darchinyan said. “It doesn’t matter who’s going to win. I would just love to fight them. [Whoever] will win, I’m just going to come and destroy him. You will see, guys.”

Vic better hope he beats Moreno first, which I'm not sure if he can, before talking about who he hopes wins the main event.

Did nobody else notice the blatant mistake in the title? That or Vic talks like an illiterate gangsta rapper. Comments Thread For: Vic Darchinyan: I Hope[B]s[/B] Mares Wins, So I Can Retire Him!

[QUOTE=Young Money;11439349]We need characters like Vic in boxing. He always comes to fight and enters the ring with bad intentions.[/QUOTE] Sure, but he is limited, and his style is awful to watch.

[QUOTE=LeadUppercut;11438878]I have tried to like Darchinyan, but I simply cannot. I cant stand his mouth, and I dont like his style. And I love watching sluggers get schooled or KTFO, that is the very best aspect of boxing to me.....…
