Vic Darchinyan Final Press Conference Quotes


(Los Angeles, USA: March 2, 2007) WBC and The Ring magazine super bantamweight champion Israel Vazquez, IBF/IBO bantamweight champion Rafael Marquez and IBF/IBO flyweight world champion Vic Darchinyan were the featured speakers during Thursday’s final press conference for the sensational fight card this Saturday, March 3, at The Home Depot Center in Carson, California, USA.


In one of the most highly anticipated match-ups in years, Vazquez will defend his titles against Marquez in the main event on SHOWTIME CHAMPIONSHIP BOXING, USA. The showdown between two of boxing’s most exceptionally talented and exciting warriors at the peaks of their games will be promoted by Gary Shaw Productions, LLC, and Romanza Productions, and Sycuan Ringside Promotions and Golden Boy Promotions.


In an excellent SHOWTIME co-feature, the undefeated, hard-hitting Vic Darchinyan defends against former IBF champion and current top contender Victor Burgos.



“People need to understand that I want to win all my fights by knockout. Knockouts are what draw attention to the boxers in the lighter weight classes like me.


“I am not satisfied winning by anything other than knockout. That is why I want the result from my last fight changed. It should be a knockout victory for me, not a (technical) decision.


“I believe I have as much power as any boxer pound for pound in the world – maybe more. No one can withstand it. I am not chasing birds in the ring. I have birds. No one can stay with me for 12 rounds.


“I only want to fight the very best champions – the guys that will bring out the best in me. I want to move up in weight. Let’s see how the bigger guys do when they taste my power for the first time.


“It is an honor for me to be on this card and to be on SHOWTIME again. I am looking forward to putting on a great show that you will not forget.’’
