DeMarco: A Broner Win Will Take Me To The Elite Level

BoxingScene.com recently caught up with WBC lightweight champion Antonio DeMarco (28-2-1, 21KOs) who is looking to face former 130 pound champion Adrien Broner (24-0, 20KOs) on November 17th in Atlantic City.  DeMarco said that he has agreed to the fight and HBO has announced that Broner has also accepted the fight.

"That is exactly the type of fight that I am looking for. We have agreed to terms on our side so on November 17th God willing the fight should happen," DeMarco told BoxingScene.

The Mexican fighter earned his title the hard way.  He pulled off a major upset when he lifted the strap from Jorge Linares last October. DeMarco now is one of the hottest names in the division and other fighters are practically lining up for a shot at him and his belt. I asked Linares what it felt like to go from being the hunter to the hunted.

"It is great.  It means my career is progressing the way I want it to. I'm very happy that my hard work has paid off, " stated DeMarco.

With so many options seemingly available, I asked DeMarco if a fight against Broner is the one that he wants the most. A huge grin formed on Demarco's face as he excitedly answered my question.

"This is the fight I want the most. This is the fight that I need to get me to the next level as one of the elite fighters. Beating Broner will be huge for my career.  Every boxer as a kid dreams of becoming a champion.  Thankfully I have done that and beating Broner will get me to exactly where I want to be, the elite level," DeMarco revealed.

Got Broner in this one. Think he is the next great boxing star and has the skill set to back that up but i do agree that DeMarco is no joke and shouldnt be taken lightly. A chance to be a superstar for both fighters

A Broner defeat would knock em off his high horse and maybe teach em a bit of humility. but who are we kidding right? The kid his a great set of skills and the youth to back it up. won't be a cake walk, but I see Broner winning this one.

[QUOTE=ThePhantom5]Demarco has a decent shot. This is a big jump up in comp and also his first legit fight at 135. Broner will finder harder to bully a guy closer to his own size[/QUOTE] Yall mexicans a trip! I understand rooting for your race, but be real or fair sometimes! Yall are the sa...

Can't wait for this fight! But its funny to see DeMarco already trying to inflate this win :D c'mon bro, you gotta beat an elite fighter before you can be considered 'elite'.
