JOHNATHON BANKS ROUNDTABLE QUOTES
“Seth Mitchell has contradicted himself. Right after the fight he was very humble, gave me respect for the win and said he was going to have to go back to the drawing board, work his way back to the position he was in. Now I hear him saying things like ‘I didn’t win the fight or knock him out because I was the better man that night’ and that it was his mistakes that were the cause of the loss. I find that to be out of character for this guy who seemed to be humble and respectful of me as a fighter prior to the first fight. When I lost to Adamek as a cruiserweight, I lost. Continue reading

ANTONIO DEMARCO, WBC Lightweight World Champion -“It’s an important fight for my career.
“My fight with Edwin Valero will help me get in the ring with more confidence.
“I know it’s a difficult fight for both of us. Because of his talent and my heart and hunger, it’s going to be a great fight for the fans.
“Broner is very elusive and he’s an intelligent fighter, but we came prepared for that and more.
“A very difficult fight in my past that I can compare to this one is my fight with Kid Diamond [Almazbek Raiymkulov]. He also was elusive, but I won that fight by knockout and got a lot of exposure with the victory.
[On whether or not his weight gives him at an advantage.] “It’s a little bit of an advantage for me because I’m the world champion and I’ve been fighting at this weight a little bit longer, but I’m ready to go and if he wanted to fight at welterweight then I’d fight him there as well. It’s not a problem either way. Continue reading
