IBO Bantamweight champion and Australia’s own, Vic Darchinyan returns to action on Sunday to vie for Anselmo Moreno‘s WBA Bantamweight title. The fight will be broadcast live on 7Mate at 1pm ADST.

After a couple of up and down years that featured some tough battles and some dodgy decisions, Darchinyan will look to stay a force in the division by picking up another belt.
It will interesting to see how Darchinyan performs considering he has recently stated his desire to switch over to Mixed Martial Arts in 2012. Time will tell whether or not that actually pans out (it probably won’t) but this fight should go a long way to show the Armenian born fighter’s mindset.
His opponent, Moreno, has only tasted defeat once in his career and has held the WBA title since mid-2008. He is fairly unknown by international standards as this fight will be his first bout on American soil in his 33-fight career.
It should turn out to be a battle of Moreno’s youth and Darchinyan’s power.
