Vic Darchinyan retained his IBO bantamweight belt when he easily out-pointed South African boxer Evans Mbamba over 12 rounds at the Karen Demirchyan Sports Complex in Yerevan, Armenia on Saturday night.
Fighting in his home country for the first time, the Armenian born boxer was too strong for the gutsy Mbamba, who was outboxed for the entire fight.
The 35-year-old Darchinyan, who has fought mostly out of Australia, was making his fourth defence. He improved his record to 37-3-1. Mbamba falls to 18-2-(9).
