Darchinyan hopes to equal Fenech!

By Ray Wheatley–World of Boxing

IBF/WBC/WBA super flyweight champion Vic Darchinyan who challenges for the IBF bantamweight title against Joseph Agbeko at Sunrise, Florida on Saturday, will equal Hall of Famer Jeff Fenech in winning world titles in three weight divisions if successful. He has already equalled Kostya Tszyu as a WBC/IBF/WBA champion.

Darchinyan who was born in Vanadzor, Armenia came to Australia representing Armenia at the 2000 Sydney Olympics. He decided to base himself in Australia and turned professional under the guidance of former world champion Jeff Fenech. Darchinyan won the IBF flyweight title on 2004 when he stopped Irene Pacheco in eleven rounds. He captured the IBF super flyweight title by scoring a knockout in five rounds over Dimitry Kirilov in 2008. Darchinyan equalled Kostya Tszyu when he defeated, by knockout in nine rounds, WBC/WBA champion Cristian Mijares in 2008 to win all major body orgainzation tites as a super flyweight.
