Darchinyan to challenge Agbeko
Junior bantamweight titleholder Vic Darchinyan will move up in weight to challenge bantamweight belt holder Joseph Agbeko on July 11 in Sunrise, Fla, on Showtime.
Darchinyan (32-1, 26 KOs)is coming off spectacular knockouts of Cristian Mijares and Jorge Arce, which earned him the No. 10 spot in THE RING pound-for-pound ratings.
Agbeko (26-1,22 KOs)will be making the second defense of the title he won by stopping Luis Alberto Perez in 2007. He outpointed William Gonzalez in his first defense in December.
