The co-feature bantamweight title bout on tonight's Showtime double-header is, like so many fights today, very intriguing, and this is the rare instance where a title challenger has been made the favorite against the incoming titleholder.

Vic Darchinyan (37-3-1, 27 KO) has the odds slightly in his favor against WBA titlist Anselmo Moreno (31-1-1, 11 KO).
The Panamanian being largely unknown in the United States, and in many locations for that matter, may be playing a role in this. Stylistically, Moreno may present Darchinyan with a significant challenge, as he's a tall bantamweight a 5'8", a southpaw, and not only is he tricky, but he's a pretty good dirty fighter when he has to be. He can be a frustrating guy to fight, and Darchinyan, who is 35 years old now, has been known to let his arrogance and emotions get the better of him.
