Vic Darchinyan, likely going to the Hall of Fame. Unfortunately the guy is TINY, he is already in his 3rd weight division up in boxing and his still only 118lbs. He will need to put on some serious muscle just to make the bantam division, 17lbs of it!

I enjoy watching Vic as a Boxer. Gary Shaw used the phrase "We will be retiring from Boxing". So I guess he thinks his promotion is heading to MMA as well. Gee, I wonder how that is gonna work out for him. Unless he is just gonna manage Vic. He won't be doing any co-promoting with the UFC, Strikeforce, or Bellator. That's for sure.

Following in the footsteps of Kimbo Slice? Really? How is it even remotely close? And are they sure they want to use that as their business model.

The lower weight classes are stacked with excellent wrestlers. Shaw should know its not so easy to handpick opponents in MMA. He probably wants to promote his own events. They will surely fail if that's the case.

Darchinyan will have a lot to learn. Unless he has extensive wrestling skills I'm not familiar with.

No idea what Gary Shaw is planning, don't really care. More interested to see how Vic does. Vic said he isn't retiring from boxing, but that he wants to do both.

Vics father was an Olympic wrestling coach, so I imagine Vic has done quite a bit of it in his lifetime. That said, he is skinny as hell, so he will need some muscle for the grappling, several pounds of it and he would be the perfect weight for flyweight in MMA.

Well when UFC starts their flyweight division this guy can come in. He won't have to cut as much weight for MMA matches then boxing matches. I think this guy could still do both.

No chance in hell would the UFC allow one of their fighters to participate in professional boxing while under contract.

Vic Darchiniyan is in his prime? News to me.

Anyway he's fighting at 124lb now so he's a natural fit for 125lbs.

His fighting at 118 now. Bantamweight.

He isn't in his best division which was flyweight, but he is very much still in his prime. He beat the hell out of Perez just 2 fights ago, many think he beat Mares and he will probably beat Moreno today. That is better than what most other boxers have done in any division over the last year or two.

Actually, his 35. Prime is not dependent on age.

Once more, clueless boxing information around this board. Yourself and Rofl are normally posters I enjoy reading, but why do guys make assumptions and give information on topics they do not know.

Stand corrected. Misread that as Super Bantamweight...it was Super World Bantamweight.

Lol boxing commissions.

And no OWNS he's 35 and has been boxing all his life. If he was 30 or something maybe it'd be worth talking about.
