May 17 2011
IBO world champion Vic Darchinyan has declared in Yerevan-hosted
news conference that April 23 is a great day for him – the day when
he defeated Yonnhi Perez. Vic Darchinyan appeared in his weighting
ceremony and pre-match conference with a poster condemning Armenian
Genocide, and during the bout he was wearing shorts with a sign –
1915. He had a perfect victory over Perez and dedicated his victory
to the victims of Armenian Genocide.
“I’m the first sportsman in the world to introduce Armenian Genocide
to the world. That was a great day for me and not only for me. I think
it was a great event for the Armenians. I had interviews with many
TV companies and I had a comprehensive speech about the Genocide. The
topic has been widely covered in the world,” Vic said.
The champion hopes to have a meeting with President Serzh Sargsyan
and to discuss the foundation of Armenian Boxing School.
