Despite the damage Hurricane Sandy has done on the east coast, Golden Boy and the show's other coordinators are moving forward with the November 17 card at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, featuring Adrien Broner against Antonio DeMarco in a highly-anticipated main event.
"We're going ahead as if the show is taking place," said (Golden Boy COO David) Itskowitch. "From what I have been told, Boardwalk Hall is fine, and the boardwalk in front of Boardwalk Hall is fine. Ken Condon told me that they were getting ready to re-open the casinos today."
Broner (24-0, 20 KO) and DeMarco (28-2-1, 21 KO) will fight for DeMarco's WBC lightweight title, as the 23-year-old Broner looks to claim a world title in a second weight class, after leaving the 130-pound division behind.
HBO will televise the card, and Seth Mitchell is set for the co-feature, where he'll face Johnathon Banks in a heavyweight bout set for 10 rounds.
