By Paul Upham: World super flyweight boxing champion Vic "Raging Bull" Darchinyan and his manager Elias Nassar announced on Sunday June 28, from Darchinyan’s Las Vegas-based training camp, that they will be extending their relationship with promoter Gary Shaw... for life!

"I am so please and honored by their trust and faith in me and my abilities," said Shaw. "I am truly humbled. But for all the credit Vic and Elias give me, the real credit goes to Vic and his team for in the end, they are the ones producing great fights for the fans and Vic Darchinyan is the most exciting fighter in the world. He is conquering more worlds than Alexander the Great with no end in sight. The real wonder of our relationship is that we have never had a signed piece of paper between us. Just a handshake and a hug. It’s a beautiful friendship and I look forward to working with them on developing more talent from Australia, Armenia and Russia for many years to come."

Darchinyan 32-1 (26), already a two-division world champion with knockout victories of world titlists Cristian Mijares, Jorge Arce, Irene Pacheco and Dmitri Kirillov, moves up to challenge IBF bantamweight champion Joseph "King Kong" Agbeko 26-1 (22), Saturday, July 11.

The fight will be broadcast in the USA live from the Bell Atlantic Center in Sunrise, Fla., on SHOWTIME Championship Boxing, beginning at 9pm ET/PT, delayed on the West Coast.
