Antonio DeMarco Willing To Face Sergio Thompson Next

By Miguel Rivera

World Boxing Council (WBC) lightweight champion Antonio DeMarco said he would like to make the next defense of his crown against his Mexican countryman Sergio "Yeyo" Thompson - because he earned his shot in the ring.

DeMarco was scheduled to face Jorge Linares in a rematch on July 7 in Los Angeles, but last Saturday night in Cancun - Thompson shocked the boxing world with a two round stoppage of Linares.

"The victory that he earned last Saturday in Cancun, beating former world champion Jorge Linares by knockout in two rounds, was a big surprise for many people - but not for me because I knew about the explosive power in his fists," Linares said.
 
DeMarco (27-2-1, 20 KOs) said he would like to trade punches with "Yeyo" (22-2, 20 KOs) in either Cancun, in his native city of Los Mochis or even in Tijuana.

The champion will resume his training activities on Monday.

I thought the WBC said no to this fight? As far as title defense goes.

Fight Lundy. He built a name on Espn and it would be an exciting fight for HBO or Showtime.

[QUOTE=jdubb863;11976177]Did linares really say that?..[/QUOTE] Probably a typo that meant to say Demarco... unless Linares refers to himself in the third person
