Review: 2011-10-15, nice fight between Antonio DeMarco and Jorge Linares, it is very close to our 4 stars. Linares was dominating the fight thanks to his perfect technique but from the sixth round a cut on the nose allows DeMarco to get back in the match. In the eleventh the Mexican picks up the pace and Linares, with a bloody mask, is no longer able to fight: DeMarco wins by TKO. Antonio DeMarco (25-2-1) entered as the No.11 lightweight in the world while Jorge Linares (31-1-0) entered as the No.10. DeMarco vs Linares was valid for the vacant WBC lightweight title (undercard of Bernard Hopkins vs Chad Dawson). Watch the video!
