Vic Darchinyan determined to face Donaire for return match - coach

PanARMENIAN.Net - Several days ago, promoter Bob Arum named Guillermo Rigondeaux, Abner Mares and Vic Darchinyan as possible contenders for an April 13 fight vs. Nonito Donaire.

As Darchinyan’s coach Vazgen Badalyan told PanARMENIAN.Net the boxer is currently negotiating for a fight.

“Vic himself told me he’s got his mind set on facing Donaire for a return match. Promoters are currently in talks, yet the agreement hasn't been reached yet,” the coach said.

Badalyan, however, confessed to advising Darchinyan against a Donaire bout.

Donaire beat Darchinyan in 2007, and a rematch was never made despite some negotiations over that time.
