Adrien Broner’s Trainer: DeMarco Will Be 'Overwhelmed'

By Ryan Maquiñana

Mike Stafford, trainer of lightweight newcomer Adrien Broner (24-0, 20KOs), was confident in his fighter’s chances regarding a likely showdown with 135-pound beltholder Antonio DeMarco (28-2-1, 21KOs) on Nov. 17.

“DeMarco’s a good fighter, and he showed he can punch a little bit, but I think [Broner] has that speed, and I think eventually he’ll overwhelm him,” Stafford told BoxingScene.com.

The bout has yet to be finalized, but the Cincinnati-based Stafford is already gearing his fighter up for a title challenge.

“It’s close,” he added.  “They just have to cross the T’s and dot the I’s.  We’re training like we’re preparing for DeMarco on November 17th.”

Broner-DeMarco will reportedly be broadcast on HBO with lightweight Carlos Molina taking on an unnamed foe in the co-feature.
