Former WBO junior lightweight beltholder Adrien Broner and WBC lightweight beltholder Antonio DeMarco will be featured on Saturday’s “Knockout Night” on Fox Deportes in advance of their HBO-televised clash in Atlantic City at Boardwalk Hall on Nov. 17.
DeMarco (28-2-1, 21 knockouts) is coming off a 44-second knockout of John Molina in September, which represented the 26-year-old’s fifth straight win and his fourth by stoppage during that run since last sufferniig defeat by ninth-round stoppage to the late Edwin Valero in February of 2010.
A talented 23-year-old out of Cincinnati, Broner (24-0, 20 KOs) is coming of July’s HBO-televised fifth-round knockout of Vicente Escobedo, a triumph that represented Broner’s fourth straight stoppage victory.
At 10 p.m. ET/ 7 p.m. PT Saturday, Fox Deportes will televise Broner’s first-round knockouts of Rafael Lora, Ilido Julio and Jason Litzau, and his third-round stoppage of Vicente Martin Rodriguez.
Fox Deportes will also show DeMarco’s bloody, come-from-behind 11th-round knockout of former two-division beltholder Jorge Linares, which earned him the vacant WBC lightweight belt in October of last year.
