Vic Darchinyan-Shinsuke Yamanaka Set Down For April 6

New Jersey - A date has been set for the highly anticipated WBC world championship fight between, Vic "Raging Bull" Darchinyan (37-4-1, 27 KOs) and Japan's undefeated WBC bantamweight champion, Shinsuke Yamanaka (15-0-2, 11 Kos).  The showdown will take place on April 6, 2012 in Tokyo, Japan.  On the line will be Yamanaka's WBC Bantamweight title.

Promoter Gary Shaw confirmed, "The date has been agreed upon for April 6.  Darchinyan will have to travel into unfamiliar territory and show the world why he's one of the best fighters walking the earth.  Capturing a world title in three divisions will put Vic in the history books as one of the greatest."

Darchinyan, determined to make history stated, "I'm going seize this opportunity the WBC has given me with everything I got.  My heart and soul will be poured into this training camp and I'm going to be in the best shape of my life.  My team and I are ready for war! Nothing is going to stop me from bringing home that third world championship."

Darchinyan's manager and advisor Elias Nassar went on to say, "I want to thank Gary Shaw for putting this fight together.  He works hard behind the scenes and needs to be commended for his efforts.  Yamanaka is a young hungry fighter, but I believe Vic's experience and power will be the keys to him being victorious.  I want to also thank the WBC and Team Yamanaka for giving Vic this opportunity.  Team Darchinyan is ready to go."

A solid bantamweight Yamanaka stands a good chance against Vic. I for one will be picking the JP guy.
