The President of the Republic of Armenia, Serzh Sargsyan, received Gary Shaw, promoter of world super flyweight champion Vic Darchinyan, and Gagik Tsarukyan, President of Armenia’s Olympic Committee, on Tuesday in the Presidential Palace located in Armenia’s capital city of Yerevan. Shaw informed President Sargsyan that he plans to organize a Darchinyan world title fight in Armenia for spring 2010. Darchinyan, a two-division world champion, is a native of Armenia.

“Armenia has never hosted a professional boxing event much less a world championship fight, so who better to headline than Armenia’s No. 1 sports personality, Vic Darchinyan,” said Shaw. “President Sargsyan expressed his readiness to assist in the implementation of this event. He also expressed confidence that it would attract thousands of Armenian boxing fans and would be an excellent opportunity to present Armenia to the world since this would be televised internationally. I look forward to promoting this historic event and I thank Vic and Elias Nasser for their continued support as friends and partners. It is because of them that I am afforded this wonderful opportunity.”
