Donaire vs Darchinyan rematch may be better bout – Arum

PanARMENIAN.Net - There is a possibility that undefeated WBA super bantamweight champion Guillermo Rigondeaux (11-0. 8 KO’s) may be replaced by Vic Darchinyan in the title fight against WBO/Ring Magazine and WBC Diamond Belt champion Nonito “The Filipino Flash” Donaire (31-1, 20 KO’s) in Donaire's fourth title defense possibly at New York’s Madison Square Garden on April 13, boxingscene.com reported.

Top Rank promoter Bob Arum said that there is “a real problem. Its stupid” referring to Rigondeaux’s demand that Top Rank settle a pending legal dispute with Miami-based Caribe Promotions before he signs the contract to fight Donaire.

Arum told us “they were out, now there in and suing and they are trying to hit me for more money which I’m not going to give them and if Rigondeaux is not going to sign the contract we’ll go with Darchinyan.”

The Top Rank promoter thinks a Donaire-Darchinyan rematch “may be a better fight and Cameron Dunkin (Donaire’s manager) likes that fight for Donaire, and Darchinyan is not asking for as much money as Rigondeaux so it will make HBO happy because we can give them a little refund.”
