IBR on The Cruelest Sport

“In October of 2011, believing him fully rehabbed from a stunning first-round knockout loss to Juan Carlos Salgado, Golden Boy Promotions pitted lightweight Jorge Linares against Antonio DeMarco. Only two fights removed from being stopped by Edwin Valero—a man who fought under a perpetual full moon—DeMarco was carpet-bombed by Linares. He hunkered down through the assault however, eventually breaking Linares’ nose en route to an 11th-round TKO. DeMarco can spoil the plot again when he faces Adrien Broner on Saturday night at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, New Jersey.”
