Bad Left Hook Fight Night: Joseph Agbeko v. Vic Darchinyan

Scott Christ is the managing editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2006.

Tonight's round-by-round of Agbeko-Darchinyan is dedicated to the memory of Arturo Gatti. May you rest in peace, "Thunder."


"No matter how many times they remake King Kong, the ending is always the same. It's beauty that kills beast. Who's more beautiful in the ring than I am?" -- Vic Darchinyan

"Vic is always talking about his power and about how he's this and that, but I've watched a couple of his fights and never saw that power. I'm going to let him do whatever he wants to do in this fight because I can do whatever he does better than him." -- Joseph Agbeko
