Darchinyan ready to let Donaire have his fee to agree to revanche

PanARMENIAN.Net - Vic Darchinyan, who captured the vacant IBO bantamweight world title on April 24 in a clash against Colombia’s Yonnhy Perez is currently in Armenia.

As the boxer told a news conference in Yerevan, the victory allowed him to increase the world’s awareness of the Armenian Genocide Commemoration Day. “In a fight against Perez, I won my 8th belt to become the 3rd Showtime boxer to gain that many titles,” the sportsman said.

Darchinyan will fight with Abner Mares in bantamweight tournament, who, by a disputable judge resolution was announced winner in their December 2010 clash. As Darchinyan noted, Mares’ failure to agree to a combat might end in the latter’s disqualification.

Should Darchinyan not find a suitable rival, he’ll move to the forth weight class: featherweight or light welterweight.

The IBO bantamweight champion seeks a revanche with a WBC/WBO world champion Nonito Donaire, who knocked him out in 2007. “For over 4 years, Donaire would not agree to a revanche. I want to show what I’m capable of, yet I cannot get him to agree. I even offered to let him have my fee in exchange for a match,” Darchinyan said.
