Weekend Wrap-up in Boxing (November 16-17)

Moving up from the junior lightweight division as champion, Adrien Broner faced on Saturday night what was expected to be his toughest challenge to date against lightweight champ Antonio DeMarco. Broner, however, easily dominated and took the WBC belt from DeMarco with a TKO win in the 8th round. His performance has many in the boxing circuit talking about moving him up the list of best fighters in the world pound for pound amongst Andre Ward, Floyd Mayweather Jr., Sergio Martinez, and Manny Pacquiao. In a fight that preceded the Broner-DeMarco matchup, what appeared to be America’s best hope for an American to recapture the heavyweight crown turned sour when Seth Mitchell was knocked out by Johnathon Banks in the 2nd round. Banks is also American, but wasn’t considered to have the skills it would take to dethrone either of the Klitschko brothers. In an exciting flyweight championship unification bout, Brian Viloria and Hernan Marquez battled for 10 rounds until Marquez succumbed and his corner threw in the towel. In the United Kingdom, super middleweight Carl Froch easily destroyed Yusaf Mack of Philadelphia by KO in the 3rd round to retain his IBF title. Froch is now eyeing a rematch with Andre Ward, who he lost to in December 2011, and his promoters want the fight to take place in Europe. An enraged Ward appeared to be ranting on Twitter when he wrote: “Why do I have to rematch Froch in the UK? Talk to me UK!”
