With only two weeks to go, the interim WBC lightweight champion Antonio DeMarco (23-1-1, 17 KOs) feels more than ready for the biggest night of his life when he faces the full-fledged champion Edwin Valero (26-0, 26 KOs) for the absolute title on February 6th in Monterrey, MX. “Many things pass through my mind before a fight. I feel very motivated, optimistic and I just want the day to be here already, that moment so that I can feel the adrenaline and do what I really love doing which is to climb into the ring and feel those butterflies in my stomach,” DeMarco of Tijuana, MX, by way of Los Mochis, stated. “We are in great shape, we feel good and with only two weeks to go I would dare to say that if the fight was tomorrow, we would be ready.”
His trainer, Romulo Quirarte, added that training camp has gone just as planned.
“It is going very good, just like we planned it,” Quirarte said. “It is going according to the strategy.”
The bout along with the semi main event between welterweights Luis Carlos Abregu (28-0, 23 KOs) and Richard Gutierrez (24-3-1, 14 KOs) will be broadcast by Showtime in the United States and Televisa in Mexico.
