Antonio DeMarco Outlasts Reyes Sanchez Over 12 Rds

By Jake Donovan

In the opening bout on Showtime’s split-site doubleheader on Saturday evening, Antonio DeMarco rode a strong start to a hard-fought unanimous decision win over Reyes Sanchez at the Heartland Events Center in Grand Island, Nebraska.

Scores were 115-113, 116-112 and 117-111.

DeMarco (25-2-1, 18KO) jumped out to an early lead, opening a cut over Sanchez’ left eye in the first minute of the fight and counterpunching his way to a four round head start. Sanchez made the fight interesting when he was able to turn it into a war, but the early deficit proved too much to overcome in the end.

The win was DeMarco’s second straight since his lopsided knockout loss in what would be Edwin Valero’s final fight last February.

Sanchez ends a three fight losing streak, falling to 20-4-1 (11KO).

Cliff Rold’s full report to come…

NON-TELEVISED UNDERCARD

Fringe light heavyweight contender Alejandro Berrio (32-5, 29KOs) stopped faded veteran Antwun Echols (32-17, 28KOs) in three rounds. Echols has now lost nine of his last ten fights and has to really consider retirement.

Lightweight contender Marvin Quintero (21-3, 17KOs) stopped Lowell Brownfield in (11-7) in three rounds.

DeMarco is too soft to be a champion. guys who give up have little heart and are never great fighters. Demarco is a pretty boy looks pretty but fights average. he will be a fringe contender forever.

[QUOTE=BesWorldChamp;10163483]Demarco's opponent was throwing punches that were very slow and without much power at all. With that considered, I don't think Demarco did much at all. He looked good early on, but that was about it. Disappointing performance.[/QUOTE] Have to…
