On Saturday night, January 21st, at Roseland in NYC, Demarcus “Chop Chop” Corely returned to the ring to snatch the  NABF Super Light Title from Gabe ‘Tito” Bracero. This surprised a ot of people, but not Demarcus, who said to me before the fight “It’s mine.” In the first five rounds he dominated, and with precision punches and put young Tito down three times. Later in the fight, Tito grew in strength and stamina… but not enough to undo the damage. By the end, Demarcus got him self a well deserved UD.

Here’s to the new, old King! Long may he reign!
