Darchinyan Check weigh-in

By Paul Upham: World Super Flyweight Champion Vic "Raging Bull" Darchinyan weighed in at 123.6 pounds for his World Boxing Council-mandated 30-day weigh-in, well below the maximum limit of 127 pounds.

The weight was certified for the WBC by Gary Soo, M.D. Luis M. Escalona, Chairman of the WBC Safety Committee, informed promoters Gary Shaw Productions and Top Rank, that World Boxing Association interim super flyweight champion JORGE "Travieso" ARCE had yet to furnish his required 30-day weigh-in result.

"Do you know the weigh to San Jorge?’ quipped Darchinyan upon hearing the news that Arce’s weigh-in result was still missing in inaction. "Maybe he should switch to sugar-free lollipops to facilitate his weight loss? I just hope Jose Luis Castillo isn’t his nutritionist! All I want is a level playing field. Rules are rules and they should be enforced equally for both sides."

Darchinyan (31-1-1, 25 KOs), of Sydney, Australia by way of Armenia, and Arce (51-4-1, 39 KOs), from Los Mochis, Mexico, will settle their bitter hostilities toward each other, once and for all, in a fight to the finish, Saturday, February 7, at the Honda Center in Anaheim, Calif.. Darchinyan will be making his first defense of the WBC, WBA and International Boxing Federation 115-pound titles he unified when he knocked out defending WBC/WBA champion Cristian Mijares on November 1 -- a Fight of the Year candidate.
