Review: 2014-11-23, some good exchanges between Jessie Vargas and Antonio DeMarco but it is not enough to get three stars. The undefeated Jessie Vargas entered this fight with a perfect boxing record of 25-0-0 (9 knockouts) and he is ranked as the No.4 light welterweight in the world (currently the #1 in this division is Danny Garcia); he has fought twice in 2014 beating Khabib Allakhverdiev (=Vargas vs Allakhverdiev) and Anton Novikov (=Vargas vs Novikov).
His opponent, Antonio DeMarco, has a record of 31-3-1 (23 knockouts) and he entered as the No.19 welterweight, he suffered his last loss in 2012 when he faced then-undefeated Adrien Broner losing his Wbc Lw belt (=Broner vs DeMarco); since then he has won three fights, the last one against Lanardo Tyner. Vargas vs DeMarco is valid for the WBA World light welterweight title (Vargas’ second defense); undercard of Manny Pacquiao vs Chris Algieri. Watch the video and rate this fight!
