Vic Darchinyan TKOs Jorge Arce; wants Donaire

Vic Darchinyan (Australia) defeated Jorge Arce (Mexico) via eleventh round TKO in their WBA/WBC/IBF Superflyweight title showdown at The Honda Center, Anaheim, California, USA. Arce is the second high profile Mexican boxer to lose by knockout this month. Basically, Darchinyan was too much for Arce as the latter doesn't know how to counter the Aussie's awkward style. Darchinyan dominated most of the rounds with his 1-2 combos finding its way to Arce but it's the Australian's power punches doing the most damage. Arce's only creditable round was the third when his left hook cuts Darchinyan. The action slowed considerably in the fifth and sixth rounds. By eleventh round, Arce had nothing left. Vic Darchinyan continued the hammering buoyed on by Armenian crowd egging him to finish off the Mexican. He did. The ringside doctor put a stop to the carnage.

Darchinyan wants to fight Nonito Donaire again. Fortunately for him, Gary Shaw won't allow it.

"I would love to fight him," stated Vic Darchinyan in regards to a possible rematch with Nonito Donaire. "Not a chance," promoter Gary Shaw said. He said he won't reward disloyalty (he was Donaire's promoter and the boxer's career decayed because of Shaw).

Gary Shaw was a consultant of an MMA organization
EliteXC and got entangled in an alleged match-fixing scandal.

I know Vic Darchinyan is ethnic Armenian like Karo Parisyan but I refer to his citizenship. The Raging Bull became Australian citizen on July, 2004. I don't want to get technical - I don't care where he comes from only winners get to be featured here. So to be accurate, he is ethnic Armenian with Australian citizenship.
