Vic Darchinyan has been, is, and always will be a loud trash-talker. He's flung insults at his opponents, calling one foe a coward for refusing to stand toe-to-toe with him in the center of the boxing ring. He's said that one of his counterparts had been hit in the head so much that he was dumb. He's promised bouts that would not only end in victories, but would end the in the destruction of a challenger who dared to face him. Darchinyan has used just about every appropriate word and saying that could be used to berate a fighter on television, in print or online.

LAKE ARROWHEAD — With a blast into the thin mountain air, Flintridge Prep's Denise van der Goot gave the Rebels and their faithful reason to believe a comeback was possible. And when Ashley Kim let fly on another blast that traveled deep into right field, the Rebels and their fans once again were lifted from their seats. Only this time, Kim's blast came up short, as did the Rebels in a 3-1 loss to host Rim of the World on Tuesday afternoon in the second round of the CIF Southern Section Division VI playoffs.

PASADENA — The bulk of the damage done to the St. Francis High baseball team by visiting Loyola’s lineup on Tuesday at Jackie Robinson Field was mostly concentrated within two innings. But the Cubs’ five-run first inning and four-run fourth were more than enough to deny the Golden Knights a Mission League win they badly needed to keep pace with the race for the postseason. The tone was set for an afternoon of struggle for the Golden Knights when Loyola’s first five batters got hits against starting pitcher Joey Malham in the top of the first inning en route to an 11-5 defeat.

GLENDALE — After four-plus rounds in which he was in firm control, but also sustained some minor injuries, Art “Lionheart” Hovhannesyan brought his lightweight bout against Hensley Stratchan to an abrupt end on Saturday night at the Agua Caliente Casino in Rancho Mirage. Spurred on by a head butt from Stratchan in the fifth round that opened a cut above his temple, Hovhannesyan turned up the pressure on his opponent, drawing blood with a straight right and unleashing a barrage of punches to force a stoppage at the 1:45 mark of the fifth round.

NORTHEAST GLENDALE — While the first three fights of Glendale Glory 2 warmed up the audience and featured their share of action in spurts, they likely left the sizable crowd that turned out at the Glendale Civic Auditorium late Friday night, as well as those watching the card’s live broadcast on ESPN’s “Friday Night Fights,” clamoring for more. In the wake of two entertaining, but very brief, heavyweight contests to open the show, followed by a one-sided light heavyweight bout that went a full six rounds, the Art of Boxing Promotions/Bash Boxing-promoted card would ultimately depend on its main event to deliver the goods.
