Lightweight beltholder Antonio DeMarco and former 130-pound titleholder Adrien Broner both weighed in at 134.5 pounds for thier HBO-televised showdown for DeMarco’s WBC title on Saturday in Atlantic City.
DeMarco (28-2-1, 21 knockouts), a 26-year-old veteran from Los Mochis, Mexico, looked thin and lanky as usual but the 5-foot-10 southpaw did not appear drained or dried out.
Broner (24-0, 20 KOs), a 23-year-old boxer-puncher from Cincinnati who lost his WBO junior lightweight title on the scales, looked ripped as he always does. The odds favorite, who is listed at 5-foot-7 but is closer to 5-foot-9, was visibly shorter than DeMarco.
Unbeaten heavyweight prospect Seth Mitchell weighed in at 242 pounds for his co-featured bout against Johnathan Banks, who tipped the scales at a considerably lighter 218.5.
