    Adrien Broner Dominates Antonio Demarco, Gets TKO8, in AC


    It was supposed to be the stiffest test of Adrien Broner's career at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City on Saturday night, and on HBO, and the "The Problem" didn't have one in passing the hurdle. The end for Antonio Demarco, game but defensively deficient, came at 1:49 of the eighth, by TKO.
    Broner, who really got cooking after a few rounds of scoping out the Mexican, went 216-373 to 80-253 for the loser.
    After, Broner said that yes, he does love to fight, but all in all, he wants to be a playboy. He said he knew Demarco was in over his head. He said that he wanted to send the message that if you fight Broner, you won't get that doodoo off your shoe. And next? Bigger game? He said it's up to Hayon and Golden Boy. He plugged his Instagram and Twitter as well. There was nothing as memorable as hairbrushing or a mock proposal, but his ring work didn the job better than any pub stunt.
    Broner (24-0 with 20 Kos entering; from Cincinnati; age 23) weighed 134 1/2, while Demarco (28-2-1 with 21 KOs; from Mexico; age 26) was 134 1/2 pounds. Broner was five pounds heavier than Demarco, on the unofficial scale, on Saturday.
    Broner in his last bout drew some scorn for not making weight, and not trying to make weight versus Vicente Escovedo. Larry Merchant mentioned before the bout that his late colleague Manny Steward met Broner a little while back, and told him he might do well to be more aggressive than Floyd Mayweather and a bit less aggressive verbally than "Money." He has emerged as a "love him or hate him" sort, similar to Mayweather, to a lesser degree of course, but it seems like he borrowed an old Floyd playbook.
    The WBC lightweight titlist Demarco fought on Sept. 8, and barely broke a sweat, blasting out John Molina in the first. His sole loss came to the late bomber Edwin Valero in Feb. 2010, and he has matured much since then. He grew up tough, on the streets of Tijuana, a homeless kid in rags who had to forage to eat.
    In the first, the ex junior lightweight champ came out gunning. His handspeed stood out, but only after the lefty Demarco sent notice that his hands were there to do damage. Broner had luck with left hooks, scuffing up the right eye a tiny bit. Rom Quirarte his trainer, told Demarco to be a bit busier. "Keep stalking, stay behind your jab," said Broner trainer Mike Stafford.
    In the second, Broner stayed focused. It was not a busy pace, but Broner's quick hands impressed the crowd. Stafford noted that Demarco doesn't move his head.
    In the third, Demarco went to the body. He was backing up Broner, or Broner was letting him back him up. The Mexican got busier.
    In the fourth, we saw a cut on Demarco's right eye. Broner worked inside. His uppercuts scored time and again.
    In the fifth, he hurt Demarco. "Underneath," his corner yelled. He complied...and threw in some of everything to boot. A slice looked a little nasty under Demarco's left eye. In the sixth, Broner didn't work as hard. Then he hurt him with a body shot.
    In round seven, the ref warned Broner not to go low. Two rounds before, he warned him for holding behind the head. The corner told Demarco Broner had slowed down. Er, not so much...In the eighth, Broner did solid work again and a left hook put Demarco down and his corner threw in the towel.

    I am officially convince that Broner is the the truth. I still haven't seen him hurt but I expect him to handle it like a G.

    DeMarco is like Howard Cosell used to say, devoid of boxing skills but we all knew that. This fight answered some of the questions about Broner. Could he deal with a heavier, taller, harder puncher than he had fought before? What would happen we he didn't have the size advantage? How would he do against a tough fighter who was going to fight tough until the end? How would he do against a southpaw? This fight answered those questions. Broner has amazing hand speed, a tight defense, a good chin, and good ring intelligence. DeMarco knows nothing about angles or head movement and only know one way to fight which is to come forward, press the action and hope that he can out tough his opponent. Broner was too fast, too accurate, and hit too hard. It is going to be exciting watching who he fights next. Too bad most of his good fights are with Arum. Broner put up and shut up, at least for tonight.

    Broner, with the crossed-arms defense and that leaning to the right on his back foot, fights more like the prime Ken Norton than like Money May. And Broner has truth, real power and speed, not phony trying-to-be jive remindful of Gary Russell. Holla!

    I've got your crow sandwich for you Caveman Lee! Demarco got destroyedo! I thought it would go the distance,117-113 but damn Broner is a tough problem to solve for any fighter. The first commandment of boxing is speed kills. 23 year old Broner has speed to burn. He will be hard to handle until he gets older.

    Hats off to J Banks for knocking out big Seth Mitchell on the undercard. Way to come through for Manny.

    What about my $5 dollar footlong subway sandwich for being the only poster to predict the exact round that Broner would defeat Demarco in, checkout the "Demarco Is Capable Of Beating Broner" thread. Like I previously said, Broner was too fast and too skilled for the one dimensional Demarco!

    That was a flawless beat down by broner , good job. Did demarco try anything from the outside? I didn't see because I was watching broner . Props to banks. He went for it and spoiled plans and shut people up and had the ko of the night. He is stewards most exciting heavyweight. Banks was with steward for half his life and was raised a man by manny . It's good that he made manny happy by giving what he likes a brutal knockout.

    Demarco nailed him a couple times in the beginning and he took it so I would say he has a good chin. Bodywork might be the best weapon to use against him.
