Darchinyan Loses To Yamanaka

BY Michael Woods ON April 06, 2012

DarchinyanPerez Hogan34Looks like age, and Shinsuke Yamanaka, have caught up with Vic Darchinyan. The 36 year-old former flyweight, super flyweight and bantamweight champion lost a unanimous decision in Japan on Friday to Yamanaka, a 29 year old southpaw from Japan who rises to 16-0 with the win.

The Australian-born Darchinyan, having lost his second straight UD12, drops to 37-5-1. In this battle of lefties, the Japanese boxer won out by scores of 117-111, 116-112, 116-112. Darchinyan carried the tussle early, but was cut on his right eye midway through, and the hometowner did the better work down the stretch.

Evil Vic should become religious Dick and land a television show fake saving souls, but still making that moola. His days of whup-a$$ is gettin' on its fade. But his smack talk is still top grade. Even if he would've won the bout, he likely would have gotten rob. Smack talk in Tokyo is framed upon. I can see Evil Vic as one of these television preachers screaming to everyone about giving donations and drinking his miracle water or going to hell if you done. Holla!

BTW! I musta fo'got! So that none of the Armenian readers jump all up in your grill, Editor M, Evil Vic was born in Vanador, Armenia, not Down Under. Holla!
