Mark de Mori: “I wanted to focus on weight training and build my body into a heavyweight wrecking machine.”
demori would be looked at as just an opponent for king to use against a REAL good fighter on the way up. demori looks great on paper. 20 wins 18 by KO, one loss. king can sell that. it may have already started hence the interview on the front page of eastside...
so the ring announcer calls him a 20 win, 18 ko, 1 loss fighter, it sounds good when matched against an opponent with simmilar stats. the problem being, the other king fighter, will be a REAL fighter, with a list of good opposition. demori however is a padded record of novices and bums.
demori is going to get shafted. king is famous for it. king doesnt allow demori fight anone in the top 150. that lets demori pad his record, and gives king an opportunity to sell him when the time is right for a boxer he REALLY sees as a future champ.
when demori gets shocked when his opponent is named, look for demori to find a way out of it. faking injury, a contract dispute, etc.
the opponent will have a simmilar record. 20/0. anyone like to have a shot at who king has in mind?
