DeMarco: Broner is Not My Biggest, Most Important Fight

By Ryan Burton

WBC lightweight champion Antonio DeMarco (28-2-1, 21KOs) made a recent appearance on The Boxing Lab, BoxingScene's official audio show. DeMarco defends his title against former super featherweight champion Adrien Broner (24-0, 20KOs) on November 17th in Atlantic City in a fight televised by HBO. 

DeMarco told us that he has worked on a few different strategies in his camp and that he has to try them out and see which ones work during the fight. He thinks that his tremendous desire to win and big heart will spur him to victory. 

"We are going to have to get in the ring and see what works," DeMarco explained. "Each fight is different. You can have 5 or 10 different strategies and they may not work in a fight.  Rest assured we have many plans and we are well prepared.  I can't say what they are but I will leave my heart in the ring and come out with the victory," he continued. 

The Mexico native knows that this is a high profile fight.  He also knows that If he can pull off the upset that even bigger fights will be waiting. With all of that being said DeMarco insists that this isn't his biggest fight to date and is just the next step in the progression of his career.

"Assuming everything goes well it (winning) will be good for my career but being honest it isn't the biggest or most important fight of my career. Those fights (the most important) got me to the point where I was able to get this fight.  I'm sure that a win will get me even bigger fights," DeMarco revealed.

[QUOTE=Tmann400;12678384]You're really not giving Broner enough credit for his defense mathed. I've seen so many people say Broner has a "wide stance" and he's "slow footed" including his opponents, yet when the bell rings, his opponents look absolutely lost. And…
