One of the year's most-anticipated fights is coming to Atlantic City.
WBC lightweight champion Antonio DeMarco (28-2-1, 21 KOs) will defend his title against former WBO junior-lightweight champ Adrian Broner (24-0, 20 KOs) at Boardwalk Hall on Saturday, Nov. 17. Heavyweight prospects Seth Mitchell (25-0-1, 19 KOs) and Johnathon Banks (28-1-1, 18 KOs) will open the HBO-televised card.
"Caesars is excited to finish the year with a terrific doubleheader," Caesars Entertainment consultant Ken Condon said Tuesday in a phone interview. "Both fights should be very entertaining."
Tickets for the card will go on sale next Tuesday. Seats, which will range from $25 to $200 for ringside, will be available through pressofatlanticcity.com/tickets.
The show will be staged in Boardwalk Hall's main arena. Officials are expected to scale it down to accommodate around 6,000 fans, but will also leave room to expand if necessary.
