DeMarco not awed by Valero

It can be said that with an impressive 26-0, 26KO ledger with the first eighteen knockouts in the first round, WBC lightweight champion Edwin Valero defeats many of his opponents before they even climb into the ring, reminiscent of one “Iron” Mike Tyson. One who is not swayed by Valero’s admirable record is his next opponent, the interim WBC lightweight title holder Antonio DeMarco (23-1-1, 17KO) of Tijuana, MX, by way of Los Mochis.

“I focus on my work. I don’t focus on the work of Edwin Valero. I don’t focus in his power or his record. I focus in my work so that we climb into the ring 100% ready and do the right things,” DeMarco stated as he finished off another training session. “I don’t notice the record of my opponents or on anything that I might be impressed by. I take care of working hard, at 100%, even if it means getting home dead tired. That is all I can do, to focus on my job and not what Edwin Valero is doing.”

The Valero-DeMarco WBC lightweight twelve round championship bout is slated for February 6th in Monterrey, MX and will be televised nationally by SHOWTIME.
