Vic Darchinyan and Yonnhy Perez’s fight was stopped in the 5th round due to a cut close to Perez’s eye.  The cut was a result of an accidental head butt and Darchinyan was declared winner, after consulting the scorecards.

Darchinyan (36-3-1, 27 & KO) totally dominated Perez (20-2-1, with 14 Knockouts) and won with 3 matching scorecards of 50-44.  He executed many severe lefts in his remarkable performance.

Dr. Paul Wallace terminated the fight quickly after examining the injury and said that Perez had suffered an arterial cut and that the blood was pumping directly into his eye.  However, Perez apparently did not want to stop.

Now, some Boxing History…

Boxing has it’s roots deep in history.  Sumerian relief carvings from the 3rd millennium BC depict bare-fist fighting, while 2nd millennium ancient Egyptian relief show

fist-fighters (also bare-fisted) and spectators.  The earliest evidence of fist fighting with any kind of gloves comes from Minoan Crete and Sardinia.
