Most Boxers Say They’ll Fight Anyone –

Vic Darchinyan Means It!

Ask any boxer and the standard line is they will fight anyone.

But throughout the lead up to his clash tonight with former International Boxing Federation (IBF) bantamweight champion Yonnhy “El Colombiano” Perez, in the main event of SHOWTIME CHAMPIONSHIP BOXING’s broadcast (10:30 p.m. ET/PT, delayed on the West Coast) from the Nokia Theatre L.A. LIVE in Los Angeles, Two-division world champion Vic “Raging Bull” Darchinyan has been hammering the point.

“After this fight, if I don’t get a title shot at 118, I will move up to 122; I will move down to 115. Doesn’t matter.”

In fact, at the fighter meeting with the Showtime crew, Darchinyan offered (jokingly) to fight color commentator Antonio Tarver.

“Vic is a true warrior,” said his promoter, Gary Shaw of Gary Shaw Productions. “When Joseph Agbeko first fell out of his fight with Abner Mares, Vic offered right away to fight both Perez and Mares on the same night. That’s just the kind of guy he is.”

Darchinyan has vowed to dispense with the boxing skills he displayed in his last fight, a close loss to Mares, and go back to what he knows. “No more skills. After this fight everyone will be talking about my power again.”

Tickets, priced at $200, $100, $75, $50 and $25, are on sale at Ticketmaster.com, via Ticketmaster charge-by-phone lines (800) 745-3000 and at STAPLES Center Box Office. Doors at Nokia Theatre L.A. LIVE open at 4 p.m. PT. The first non-televised undercard fight starts at 5 p.m.
