IBR on The Cruelest Sport

“Questions about Adrien Broner persist, but following an arresting performance last night at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, New Jersey, those questions have taken on a decidedly different tone.

Over eight clinical rounds, Broner brutalized sturdy Antonio DeMarco, closing the curtain on a captivating performance with a barrage of punches as evil as they were accurate. With their fighter outclassed, outgunned, and on the canvas for the first time in his career, DeMarco’s corner threw in the towel, the official time of the stoppage coming at 1:49 of the eighth round.”

“Undisputed odd man out Timothy Bradley has nearly scuttled his December 15th rematch with Lamont Peterson. A Peterson fight on HBO is the best case scenario for Bradley, who has seen any momentum he gained from beating Manny Pacquiao dissolve in the ether. Commenting on the proposed matchup, however, Bradley said, “I think he’s the only guy available to fight right now, so I’m willing to wait.” Choosing to wait is Bradley’s prerogative, but Godot would arrive before a better opponent than Peterson presents himself.”
