Adrien Broner (25-0, 21 KOs) added the WBC lightweight title to his accomplishments by stopping defending champion Antonio DeMarco (28-3, 21 KOs) in round eight at the Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, New Jersey.
The fight started slowly as both fighters showed plenty of respect for each other. Broner stood in the center of the ring applying his tight (Floyd Mayweather like) body armor defense. Demarco, a southpaw, pawed with his right. He landed a glancing blow off the chin of Broner. The pace was slow. Broner landed a hard jab and right hand. Demarco landed again to the body. A left hook by Broner caused some swelling on the right side of Demarco’s face.
