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.

Wladimir Klitschko

club Hamburg SV. It’s expected to air on more than 150 TV stations around the world, either live or delayed.

Klitschko(35 years old, 55-3, with 49 knockouts) and Haye (30 years old, 25-1 and 23 Knockouts) have a bit of a feud going on, so this fight should be  interesting.

Klitschko is happy that he’ll finally be able to meet Haye in the ring, and declares that his abdominal injury has healed and won’t get in the way of his training.

Haye has always said he’d knock out Wladimir Klitschko, and then his brother Vitali to end his boxing career at a high point. Hayes also declares that Klitschko has “only fought wimps and cowards” and that he’ll show him what it’s like to fight a “real champion”. Hope he hasn’t stuck his foot in his mouth…. I guess we’ll find out on July 2nd, if all goes as planned.

David Haye

  • Bantamweight title-holder Joseph Agbeko is out due to sciatica (set of symptoms cause by injury / irritation or compression of the sciatic nerve area.) and therefore is unable to defend his title against Abner Mares. It’s hoped that the bout will be re-scheduled.

  • Instead of the Agbeko-Mares fight, Perez (20-1-1, 14 Knockouts) and Darchinyan (35-3-1, 27 Knockouts) will take center stage.
