Yamanaka Wants Bigger Fights After Darchinyan Victory

Tokyo International Forum, Japan - WBC bantamweight champion Shinsuke Yamanaka wants the biggest fights possible, after pulling off a dominating unanimous decision victory over Vic Darchinyan. Darchinyan, a former undisputed super flyweight champion known as the "Raging Bull" due to his relentless wild charges and unorthodox crouching style, swung with massive haymakers, but most of them widely missed their marks.

"I was able to achieve what I had set out to do," said Yamanaka. "Darchinyan has strong punches, but he never got any clean hits. I want to keep fighting strong opponents, so I will continue to grow," he added.

Darchinyan led after the first four rounds before Yamanaka started to break through with a strong jab, putting a deep gash above the Australian's right eye with a sharp left hand in the fifth, and Yamanaka led on the judges' scorecards after eight rounds.

The fourth-ranked Darchinyan, whose ferocious and crazed look was a stark contrast to the calm countenance of Yamanaka, was stunned with a devastating right from the Japanese champion in the 10th and his face had turned into a bloody mess in the final two rounds.

Yamanaka would like to fight the other champions in his division, including WBA's kingpin  Anselmo "Chemito" Moreno.

Excellent performance this was a great learning builder and should open other worldwide possibilities for Yamanaka Too bad Mares skipped this opportunity and gave up his belt to fight Morel maybe now there was a valid reason to bypass this…

Another Asian Champion, He should face the Latino Champs in Batamweight Division, and then possibly meeting Donaire.
