Vic Darchinyan boxing school to be established in Vanadzor

PanARMENIAN.Net - A school of boxing named after Armenian-Australian former professional boxer Vic Darchinyan will be built in Vanadzor, Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan told a government meeting on Thursday, June 23.

Pashinyan reminded that the government had earlier decided to establish a boxing school after Arthur Abraham, an Armenian-German former professional boxer.

The Prime Minister instructed relevant authorities to consult with the champions when working on the design of the schools, as they should have a specific participation in the school life.

Darchinyan held multiple world championships in two weight classes, including the IBF flyweight title from 2004 to 2007; and the WBA, WBC, IBF, and lineal super-flyweight titles between 2008 and 2010. Abrahamyan too held multiple world championships in two weight classes, including the IBF middleweight title from 2005 to 2009, and the WBO super-middleweight title twice between 2012 and 2016.
