Darchinyan ready to kick some Arce

PRESS RELEASE: World super flyweight champion Vic "Raging Bull" Darchinyan is ready to give WBA interim titlist and Mexican loudmouth Jorge Arce (51-4-1, 38 KOs), the big Olé-off!  Darchinyan (31-1-1, 25 KOs), from Sydney, Australia  by way of his native Vanadzok, Armenia, responded to the challenge Arce made to him.

"If Arce thinks he has a snowball's chance in Hell of beating me than he's a bigger sucker than those lollipops he chews on," said Darchinyan.  "Arce shouldn't be worrying about me running for the hills.  He should be worrying about me running him out of boxing! The last real ring test he had was against Cristian Mijares in 2007 and we all know how that ended.  It was a murderous unanimous decision victory for Mijares, scored 119-109, 118-110 and 117-111.  And everyone saw what I did to Mijares on November 1.  Arce is going to be my human piñata.  It will be like a Chihuahua going against a bull...a raging bull!"

Added Gary Shaw, Darchinyan's promoter, "I think Arce has been chewing on Agave-spiked lollipops for him to be making this career-ending challenge.  We may request Arce take a breathalyzer test before signing the contracts.  I'm taking no chances with this Spanish Fly."

Darchinyan, the former IBF/IBO flyweight champion, unified his IBF junior bantamweight title with Mijares' WBC/WBA super flyweight belts on November 1st, knocking him out at the end of the ninth-round of their November 1 rumble at The Home Depot Center.  Darchinyan became the first man in the history of the 115-pound division to unify the three major belts. Darchinyan's victory ended Mijares' (35-4-2, 13 KOs), two-year title run and nine-bout winning streak.
