You know, I just can't walk past a mirror without taking a self portrait.

In Training Camp With Vic Darchinyan

I had the pleasure of spending several days with Vic Darchinyan, 40(29)-7(3)-1, as he prepares for his June 6 contest with Jesus Cuellar, 26(20)-1(1)-0, for the WBA World featherweight title. The bout scheduled for 12 rounds will be part of the Premier Boxing Champions fight card held at the Stub Hub Center in Carson CA. Darchinyan, the former IBO World bantamweight Champion, WBC World super flyweight Champion, WBA Super World super flyweight Champion, lost his last bid for the featherweight title to Nicholas Walters in 2014. Since then he defeated Juan Jimenez and is ready to take on Cuellar in another bid to add that championship to his resume.

Here are some images from those training sessions;
