Darchinyan wants to 'break' Donaire
MANILA -- Vic “The Raging Bull” Darchinyan vowed to “break” Filipino champ Nonito Donaire should they face again sometime in the future to avenge his loss during their first meeting.
Darchinyan, who currently holds the World Boxing Association (WBA), World Boxing Council (WBC) and International Boxing federation (IBF) super flyweight titles, maintained his hateful stance against Donaire.
“If I meet him [again], I'm gonna break him,” he told sports writer Dennis Principe over Sports Chat radio show in dzSR.
The Australian-based Armenian said he has fought better fighters than Donaire, who knocked him out in five rounds in July 2007.
“I fought better guys than him. I went to the Philippines and fought Z-Gorres… then I took three world champions, I knocked out all of them,” said Darchinyan.
Darchinyan said his loss to Donaire is nothing but a fluke.
“He beat me by my mistake… that happens in boxing,” he said.
Donaire is currently campaigning in the super flyweight division and even eyeing a rematch with Darchinyan after three successful IBF/International Boxing Organization title defenses in flyweight.
He is scheduled to fight Rafael “El Torito” Concepcion on August 15.
“He can come back and face my oppositions,” said Darchinyan. “I mentioned Z-Gorres, [Dimitri] Kirilov, [Jorge] Arce and [Cristian] Mijares. If he can beat one of them, I'm gonna fight [him].”
Darchinyan himself is preparing for a clash with Joseph Agbeko on July 11.
The fight, however, will be for Agbeko’s IBF bantamweight title.
