Antonio DeMarco Hopes To Get Crack at Jessie Vargas

By Salvador Rodriguez

Former lightweight champion Antonio DeMarco (31-3-1, 23KOs) is focused on winning another world title in his new division, junior welterweight. On Saturday night in Tecate, DeMarco overcame a knockdown in the first round to win a ten round unanimous decision over tough veteran Lanardo Tyner.

DeMarco hopes his performance was enough to entice WBA 'regular' champion Jessie Vargas (25-0, 9KOs) to give him an opportunity.

"It was a tough fight. [Tyner] was came here from being a sparring partner for Mayweather. It was a good challenge. We had six months of inactivity, but the job got done," DeMarco said.

"I like to give the people a show. The people deserve it. He was a strong fighter and caught me with a good punch, but we already knew [what kind of fighter he was] as he went the distance with Canelo. Hopefully Jessie Vargas decides [to fight me]. It would be a good fight for the fans. Hopefully he decides [to do that]."

Yeah I thought Novikov should have won. De Marco can beat Vargas, he can probably ko him. Vargas is getting stopped very soon

Vargas should rematch Khabib or Novikov. He lost both of his last two fights.

I don't see DeMarco having much success at 140. I'd take Vargas if they fight.
