I sincerely apologize for my absence as of late. Between my daddy duties, day job responsibilities and immersion in fantasy football, I’ve been a busy man the past couple of months.
Now that I got my excuses for infrequent blog posting out of the way, let’s get right down to it–that is, the Adrien Broner (24-0, 20 KO’s) vs. Antonio DeMarco (28-2-1, 21 KO’s) fight prediction.
Like many ringside observers, I expect Broner to emerge victorious in this fight but I also think this will be the toughest challenge in his young career, by far. To me, the reasons are obvious.
DeMarco is the naturally bigger man, and is very tall (5’10") for a lightweight. Add in the fact that Broner is moving up from junior lightweight in an attempt to wrest DeMarco’s WBC lightweight championship from him, you’ve got all the makings of a pitched battle in a few weeks.
And this is not to imply that Broner’s competition has been tepid, but Demarco’s TKO victories over John Molina* (24-1) and Jorge Linares* (31-1) look great on a fight resume. And losing only twice in 31 fights, including a stoppage loss to the late "super-puncher" Edwin Valero, is absolutely nothing to scoff at! Don’t sleep on what DeMarco brings to the table.
Despite his competition and his size advantage, DeMarco still comes up short in the most critical category that we often see impact fight outcomes the most-hand speed. And Broner has a bundle.
The ring announcer will proclaim the following on Saturday, November 17 night after the fight is concluded, "And the new WBC lightweight champion of the world, by way of technical knockout is…"The Problem," Adrien Broooner!"
