Tonight, the undefeated Adrien Broner will take his Orthodox game to the lightweight division in a debut bout for the WBC Lightweight belt against champion Antonio DeMarco. In July, Broner was originally scheduled to defend his WBO Super Featherweight belt against Vicente Escobedo but after coming into weigh-ins overweight by three pounds, he was immediately stripped of his title. The fight still happened as Broner would win by TKO as he was ready to his next class.
Antonio DeMarco isn’t a pushover to many boxers as he’s currently ranked Ring No. 1 in the world as he’s won 21 of his 28 fights via Knockout with only 2 losses; but he’s going to have a tough task ahead of him tonight. For my real boxing heads out there, if you remember DeMarco’s fight against Edwin Valero two years ago where he quit after the 9th round; I expect Broner to handle this guy in convincingly fashion before the 6th round.
Be sure to tune in tonight as this fight emanates live from Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, New Jersey. Watch live On PPV at 10:00pm ET (7:00pm PT).
