darchinyan talks... what's new?

vic darchinyan: 29 wins, 1 loss, 23 wins coming by way of knockout, ranked number 5 by the ibf and number 10 by ring magazine.
z gorres: 27 wins, 2 losses, 1 draw, 15 wins coming by way of knockout, ranked number 6 by the ibf and number 9 by ring magazine.

vic and z are on a collision course. the two are set to battle at the cebu waterfront hotel and casino on february 2. the 12-round world championship elimination fight will be about redemption for darchinyan. you see, someone named nonito donaire (probably heard about him visiting the president at the palace), knocked this guy out cold last year. that was a really mean punch donaire threw as it sent the previously undefeated darchinyan kissing the mat.

that's not cool right (for darchinyan at least), so he went and asked for gorres. and he is now saying that he will knock out "the dream" come fight night. "
the filipino people are very warm, very friendly but i’m very sorry. i’m going to knock out your boy," said darchinyan.

hmmmm.. let's just wait and see.
