VIC DARCHINYAN TO FIGHT TOMAS ROJAS
Australian World Champion Vakhtang Darchinyan is getting ready for
a new bout and this time his WBA super flyweight title will also be
on the line. Darchinyan will now fight against interim WBA Super
Flyweight Title holder Tomas Rojas (31-11-1, 22 KOs) of Veracruz,
Mexico on Saturday, December 12, 2009 at the Agua Caliente Casino in
Rancho Mirage, California. Darchinyan will be defending his WBC/WBA
Super Flyweight Titles.
"Team Rojas can believe what they want to believe. They say they are
going to take me out and take my belt? How does he figure that he is
going to beat me when I have beaten all of his opponents that he has
fought? He acts brave, but when he sees me here he begins to shake. I
am a fully loaded gun and I am going to shoot him down with my boxing
skills in the ring", Vic Darchinyan said in a press conference.
Earlier Tomas Rojas had assured, "I’m ready and geared up for
Saturday’s fight. It’s a two-for-one on Saturday because I will take
two belts from Vic Darchinyan on Saturday night. He’s (Vic) a good
fighter, but I am ready for him.This is an important fight for me. Vic
Darchinyan is strong but not indestructible. I’m ready to take the
belt. I’m going to throw a lot of punches. I’ll throw more punches
and harder ones. Darchinyan has faced a lot of great fighters, but
he has never seen or fought someone like me. It’s a pleasure being
back in the U.S., but I am dedicating this fight to Veracruz, Mexico."
