Review: 2009-02-07, the fight between Vic Darchinyan and Jorge Arce was one of the best boxing fights of 2009. Darchinyan (31-1-1) had just won the WBA and WBC super flyweight titles against Cristian Mijares and, during the previous fight (also in 2008) he had beat Dmitry Kirillov, winning the IBF belt. So Darchinyan was the king of the super flyweight category, but another warrior wanted to steal his titles: Jorge Arce (51-4-1), interim champion for the WBA. The bout was very exciting, but in the eleventh round, doctor stopped the fight for the cuts to Arce’s eyes, all three judges gave the victory to Darchinyan, 109-100. Watch the video!
