Antonio DeMarco is Ready For The Rey Sanchez Clash

For lightweight Antonio DeMarco (24-2-1, 18KOs), it doesn't really matter where his next fight will be held but never in his wildest dreams would he have expected Grand Island, Nebraska.  On February 26th, DeMarco of Tijuana, MX, will challenge fellow countryman Reyes Sanchez (20-3-1, 11KOs) of Mexico City, MX, for the WBC Silver lightweight title in the main event of "Rumble in the Heartland".  The eight fight night will be held at the Heartland Events Center.  The fight will be televised by Showtime and presented by Gary Shaw Promotions.

"I feel very lucky and motivated to be part of the first championship fight in Nebraska," the 24-year-old DeMarco stated recently.  "I felt great deal of satisfaction when I got the news.  We hope that the fight ends with good results for us so that we can go back and fight there again."

DeMarco has been in a gym for the better part of the last three months even training through the holidays.  DeMarco is doing everything to reach February 26th in optimal fighting condition.

"I feel everything has been going as planned," DeMarco explained.  "We are dropping the weight comfortably and we are getting down to 3-4 pounds over contracted weight where we plan to do our most intense work.  Come fight night, we will be at more than 110%."

DeMarco is a good fighter. Too bad he doesn't have a real promoter to keep him busy. He was on a roll before the Valero loss; however, after that, he only fought once more in 2010. He would be much…
