Broner vs DeMarco Overview

Broner vs. DeMarco - by Dwight Harrison: Before the fight this was looked at as the toughest fight in Broner’s career or at least the toughest since the Ponce De Leon match, a fight that many myself excluded say Broner should off lost. Antonio “ Tony ” DeMarco (28-3-1 21 KO) was widely considered the best lightweight in the world by many and was coming off in off the back off a impressive 1st round knockout off John Molina. Adrien “The Problem ”Broner (25-0-0 21KO) on the other hand even though he was also coming off an impressive win over Vicente Escobedo he has also took some stick, because he failed to make weight and lost the title on the scales and failed to make weight at the second time off trying. The fight was going to be Broner’s last fight in the super featherweight division we were told this meaning making the weight was probably becoming a struggle he is a 24 year old growing man. I do feel that Broner played up to the villain role by tweeting pictures of twinkles as a 24 year old man also i can at test that you still are growing an he was always gonna out grow that weight class and he knew it.by Dwight Harrison: Before the fight this was looked at as the toughest fight in Broner’s career or at least the toughest since the Ponce De Leon match, a fight that many myself excluded say Broner should off lost.

With a record of (25-0-0 21KO) the skies the limit for Broner he’s long been touted as a future ppv star, And its easy to see why he has good defense,technically gifted and has very good power as 21 of his opponents have found out. Brash,Flashy and Confident he adds a colorful character to boxing something that we need more off if i’m honest especially with Floyd Mayweather Jr at the tail end of his career.

Lessons should be learned – Broner stops DeMarco

Broner vs. DeMarco - By Paul Strauss: By now you know, Adrien "The Problem" Broner 25 (KO 21)-0-0 destroyed Anthony DeMarco 28 (KO 21)-3-0 Saturday night at Boardwalk Hall, Atlantic City, N.J.   Over the course of the seven plus rounds the fight lasted, Tony maybe landed a handful of decent punches.   The rest of the fight was all Broner.  The Problem child shined in his domination of the WBC lightweight title holder, but it really was more of a gift than something earned.By Paul Strauss: By now you know, Adrien “The Problem” Broner 25 (KO 21)-0-0 destroyed Anthony DeMarco 28 (KO 21)-3-0 Saturday night at Boardwalk Hall, Atlantic City, N.J. Over the course of the seven plus rounds the fight lasted, Tony maybe landed a handful of decent punches. The rest of the fight was all Broner. The Problem child shined in his domination of the WBC lightweight title holder, but it really was more of a gift than something earned.

Unfortunately for DeMarco, he fought a courageous but stupid fight. He gave up his height and reach advantage. He failed to establish his jab and punch in combinations. It wasn’t that Broner took it away, he simply gave it away. More over, when he moved (which wasn’t often), he moved to his left into Broner’s power. Most of the time he failed to establish any kind of range or distance beneficial to him.

He fought more like he was about 5ft tall, rather than 5″10″. He was bent over and immobile. He didn’t move from the waist, and didn’t move his head, and more often than not his gloves were not in the correct position to protect himself or to punch. He seemingly forgot a fighter must know what punching distance is for himself and that of his opponent. Tony would consistently go beyond the necessary distance he needed to land shots, and into the range of Broner’s shots.

Broner: I’m going to show off more of my skills against DeMarco

Broner vs. DeMarco - (Photo credit: Naoki Fakuda) By Rob Smith: Former WBO super middleweight champion Adrien Broner (24-0, 20 KO's) intends on showcasing a lot more of his boxing skills in this fight compared to his previous ones when he fights for a title against WBC lightweight champion Antonio DeMarco (28-2-1, 21 KO's) at the Boardwalk Hall, in Atlantic City, New Jersey. Broner, 23, realizes how much more of a threat the 26-year-old DeMarco is compared to the guys that Broner's been feasting on during his still young four-year pro career and he wants to make sure nothing goes wrong tonight.(Photo credit: Naoki Fakuda) By Rob Smith: Former WBO super middleweight champion Adrien Broner (24-0, 20 KO’s) intends on showcasing a lot more of his boxing skills in this fight compared to his previous ones when he fights for a title against WBC lightweight champion Antonio DeMarco (28-2-1, 21 KO’s) at the Boardwalk Hall, in Atlantic City, New Jersey. Broner, 23, realizes how much more of a threat the 26-year-old DeMarco is compared to the guys that Broner’s been feasting on during his still young four-year pro career and he wants to make sure nothing goes wrong tonight.

Broner said to Yahoo Sports News “DeMarco fought good guys but he hasn’t fought me. You are going to see a totally different Adrien Broner on Saturday night. I am going to be able to show more of my skills.”

For Broner’s sake he better hope he shows more skills because if he clowns around in this fight or if he stays in 1st gear all night long like he’s looked against some of the weak opposition he’s been in with he’ll end up getting knocked out by DeMarco. This guys is powerful and he delivers his big left hand shots from the southpaw stance and that’s going to be a different experience for Broner because he hasn’t been fighting guys with power lately and he’s been facing a lot of southpaws.

Broner vs. DeMarco: Antonio would be wise to take a page from the Abner Mares playbook

Broner vs. DeMarco - By Joseph Herron: This past Saturday night from the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California, WBC Super Bantamweight Champion Abner Mares defeated, who most boxing pundits viewed as the 26 year old fighter’s toughest test to date, Super WBA Bantamweight Champion Anselmo Moreno by way of gritty, twelve round unanimous decision.By Joseph Herron: This past Saturday night from the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California, WBC Super Bantamweight Champion Abner Mares defeated, who most boxing pundits viewed as the 26 year old fighter’s toughest test to date, Super WBA Bantamweight Champion Anselmo Moreno by way of gritty, twelve round unanimous decision.

Many ringside experts felt that the skill level and natural athleticism of the Panamanian southpaw would be too much for the undefeated fighter. But Mares took Moreno out of his comfort zone and forced a more torrid pace than the defensive technician had grown accustomed to seeing.

Abner took away Anselmo’s natural southpaw advantage by bringing the fight to close quarters and touching-up the seemingly untouchable and slippery fighter with a barrage of punches from various angles. Mares’ intent was to hit Moreno anywhere he could, as often as he could, and to force Moreno into fighting a very physical and uncomfortable contest.

On Saturday, November 17th, from the Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, New Jersey, Antonio DeMarco (28-2-1, 21 KOs) will attempt to defend his WBC Lightweight title against the very talented, defensive specialist Adrien “The Problem” Broner (24-0, 20 KOs).

Broner vs. DeMarco still set for Atlantic City on November 17th

Broner vs. DeMarco - By Rob Smith the November 17th bout between WBC lightweight champion Antonio DeMarco and Adrien Broner is still set for Boardwalk Hallt in Atlantic City, New Jersey in spite of the damage to the area from the huge hurricane Sandy this past week.

Golden Boy Promotions still want the fight to be staged there. The area is pretty wrecked from the hurricane and it’s questionable how many people will show up for the fight.

HBO will be televising the fight, which will also have heavyweight Seth Mitchell facing Johnathon Banks in addition to the Broner vs. DeMarco fight. The Boardwalk Hall reportedly wasn’t damaged so that shouldn’t be a problem. The only question is how many boxing fans from around the area will want to see the fight given the damage that has taken place from the storm.

Broner, 23, is hoping to put on a good performance in trying to grab the World Boxing Council 135 lb title from the more experienced DeMarco. This is the first fight for Broner at 135 and he’s taking on a really tough opponent in 26-year-old DeMarco. This is like going to the head of the class and it’s definitely a risky thing for Broner to be doing. He’s had trouble in the past against tough pressure fighters like Daniel Ponce De Leon, and you’ve got to rate DeMarco ahead of him. Demarco can be a lot of problems for anyone.

Broner to go after Ricky Burns after the DeMarco fight

Broner vs. DeMarco - By Michael Collins: Adrien Broner (24-0, 20 KO's) will be targeting WBO lightweight champion Ricky Burns (35-2, 10 KO's) after the 23-year-old Broner takes care of business next month against WBC lightweight boxing champion Antonio DeMarco (28-2-1, 21 KO's) on HBO boxing at the Boardwalk Hall, in Atlantic City, New Jersey, USA.By Michael Collins: Adrien Broner (24-0, 20 KO’s) will be targeting WBO lightweight champion Ricky Burns (35-2, 10 KO’s) after the 23-year-old Broner takes care of business next month against WBC lightweight boxing champion Antonio DeMarco (28-2-1, 21 KO’s) on HBO boxing at the Boardwalk Hall, in Atlantic City, New Jersey, USA.

Broner’s trainer Mike Stafford said to Bleacherreport.com “We’ll go to Ricky Burns and get that other title. He’ll [Broner] be too fast, too smart and he’s (Burns) not strong enough, these guys are too slow for Adrien. He’s a special guy, a special guy.”

I agree with Stafford 100 percent. I think Burns would be like Jason Litzau, a fighter that Broner took out in a 1st round TKO last year in June. It would be too easy beating Burns. The only advantage thing that Burns has going for him is his height and his weight, but against Broner the weight would be the same for both fighters, so Burns wouldn’t have his customary size advantage. He’d be taller, to be sure, but the reach and the weight would be the same. The height wouldn’t help at all and Burns would just get knocked out quick by Broner.

Adrien Broner – The Making of a Star

Broner vs. DeMarco - By Paul Strauss: Adrien "Problem" Broner is a star in the making.  You doubt that?  If so, it's obvious you haven't done your homework.

If so, it’s obvious you haven’t done your homework. Look around, read a little and listen to boxing people in the know. You will soon realize the media want this guy to be boxing’s next star. One prime example is Ring magazine’s current edition. It devotes considerable ink to the undefeated youngster from Cincinnati, Ohio.

However, when preferential treatment is allotted, it begs certain questions. For example, “Is all of this attention justified? Does “Problem” deserve all the attention”? The media is in the star making business. Star making “sells newspapers” as the old saying goes. That’s obvious, so don’t necessarily look to them for answers. The media will too often shrug and say what they do is acceptable behavior in modern society. Many in the entertainment business from Mae West to Floyd Mayweather, Jr. have understood that fact and exploited it to the hilt.

The truth is there’s always been a kind of unholy union between a star in the making and the media, kind of a wink wink thing. It’s not a new phenomenon, and in fact unholy unions even exist on a much more serious level with governments.

Broner: DeMarco won’t be able to touch me

Broner vs. DeMarco - By Rob Smith: Adrien Broner (24-0, 20 KO's) isn't worried in the least about the so-called huge power of his opponent WBC lightweight champion Antonio DeMarco (28-2-1, 21 KO's) going into their fight next month on HBO at the Boardwalk Hall, in Atlantic City, New Jersey.

Broner said to RingTV “I don’t think that this guy [DeMarco] wll be able to touch me…He’s going to try to come in and do some different things…but at the end of the day once you get hit… you back to what you know.”

I really don’t see DeMarco doing anything different than what he’s always done. If DeMarco is going to try anything different in this fight it’ll probably be in trying to put more pressure on Broner by cutting off the ring and forcing him to fight in an all out war. That’s about the only thing that DeMarco can really tweak in his game. He’s not real fast and he’s not quick on his feet. His game is already 100% pure offense, and the only thing he can do any different is to fight harder or back off.

Broner vs DeMarco on November 17th

Broner vs. DeMarco - By Michael Collins: Former WBO super featherweight champion  Adrien Broner (24-0, 20 KO's) and WBC lightweight champion Antonio DeMarco (28-2-1, 21 KO's) will be mixing it up on November 17th on HBO at the Boardwalk Hall, in Atlantic City, New Jersey,. The fight is now official, according to Dan Rafael. This should be a really good fight and perhaps the best lightweight fight of this year.By Michael Collins: Former WBO super featherweight champion Adrien Broner (24-0, 20 KO’s) and WBC lightweight champion Antonio DeMarco (28-2-1, 21 KO’s) will be mixing it up on November 17th on HBO at the Boardwalk Hall, in Atlantic City, New Jersey,. The fight is now official, according to Dan Rafael. This should be a really good fight and perhaps the best lightweight fight of this year.

Broner is moving up from the super featherweight division where he previously held the WBO belt. He could have stayed at that weight, but he wanted to have more strength and didn’t have to have to melt down quite so much. He had been fighting in the mid-140s and draining down to make the 130 pound super featherweight limit. Broner gets a lot of criticism from fans for fighting so high over his old weight, but compared to former WBC middleweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr., Broner isn’t all that bad. But now that he’s fighting at 135, it won’t be nearly as big a deal because it’s only 10 pounds that Broner will be putting on after he rehydrates.

Demarco is fighting a very high level right now and he could be the best at this weight right now, at least until we see what Broner can do with him. DeMarco has victories over notable fighters like John Molina and Jorge Linares. He’s proven with those wins that he’s a legit champion and not one of the many paper belt holders that exist nowadays.
