Adrien Broner has warned Antonio DeMarco that he will not only beat him at the Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City on November 17, he will knock him out.
Broner, who lost His WBO super-featherweight title on the scales back in July, steps up a division to challenge DeMarco for the WBC lightweight crown and has promised to finish the job inside the distance.
"I’m not coming just to win this fight, I’m coming to knock DeMarco out," Broner,24-0-(20), said. "This fight is speed vs power and it’s going to be just another day in the ring for me.
"Going up in weight is going to be different and I know he can hit, but you can’t hit what you can’t see and I’m too fast and furious for him. Power is nothing if you can’t connect; it’s like moving a sack of rocks."
DeMarco,28-2-1-(21), however, is an experienced and dangerous foe and will not be intimidated by Broner’s boasts.
"Broner talks a big game but he’s never been in the ring with a hungry Mexican fighter like me," insisted DeMarco."I wanted this fight from the moment it was offered to me because I know I’ll be the first person to beat Broner and put him in his place.
"When I put my hands on him, he’ll regret his decision to move up to my division."
The winner is scheduled to challenge WBO lightweight champ Ricky Burns from Scotland.
