During tonight's broadcast of HBO Boxing After Dark, it was revealed that former super featherweight champion Adrien Broner will indeed be making his lightweight debut when he faces WBC lightweight champion Antonio DeMarco on a televised November 17 HBO World Championship Boxing card. Although representatives from either fighter have yet to confirm the bout, the fact that HBO announced it as one of their upcoming events is an excellent sign that both sides have finalized terms for the bout.
DeMarco is coming off of a sensational 1st round TKO of John Molina this past September. Likewise, Broner is coming off of a dominant 5th round TKO of Vicente Escobedo back in July. The two fighters should put on an explosive matchup when they step into the ring at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City.
