Promoter Fernando Beltran of Zanfer Promotions is very pleased that he reached an agreement with Bob Arum of Top Rank, for Antonio DeMarco (31-3-1, 23KOs) of Mexico will challenge Jessie Vargas (25-0, 9KOs) for the "regular" super lightweight title of the World Boxing Association on the 22nd of November.
The fight is going to be part of the HBO Pay-Per-View undercard to Manny Pacquiao's defense of the WBO welterweight title against unbeaten Chris Algieri.
"I think life is opportunity. DeMarco has always wanted this. He is one of the best fighters currently in Mexico and now he has his chance," said Beltran, director of Zanfer Promotions.
Beltran also said David "Tornado" Sanchez (26-2-2, 20KOs) will likely defend his WBA interim-super flyweight title on the card against a Thai opponent.
