DKP promise the world and delivers nothing. This has been going on for so long, its hard to be interested in any of these announcements as its a case of I'll believe it when it happens for mine. DeMori is a good bloke whose made some bad career decisions. Like every other countries boxing fans, Aussie boxing fans just want to see their boxers tested. I believe Mark when he says that he wants that too but the current circumstances seem messed up. Who knows though, 2013 is another year.

they cant put him in against a mug on HBO or SHOWTIME in the US. IF, demori steps up, he gets KTFO.

if they put him in with a world class fighter, the end will be near, or demori fakes an injury to get out of the fight....

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?

i think getting an interview is telling. he is getting his profile raised for a purpose. we know demori is a fraud. so does king. king will use demoris record as a selling point to build another fighters record.

From the main page...

You expressed an interest in fighting Deontay Wilder recently. Is this because you see him as being an ideal name to potentially add to your record in light of his growing potential, or do you see things that you believe you would be able to exploit, or both?

We both have nice records and need to break into the next level with a credible opponent. Our managers have spoken and while we are both happy for it to happen, the promoters are seemingly not at this stage.

Main Event mentioned you as a prospective opponent for Byrant Jennings towards the end of last year. Despite the fact it fell through, is this a fight you see happening at some point in the future?


They made an offer and Don King said he wanted me to fight Samuel Peter instead, so it was rejected. Neither fight happened, but luckily my team organised a bout with Damon Reed to ensure that I wasn’t left on the shelf again.



Wilder his next opponent? I wouldn't bet against it.

Yes it seems like the same ol story, which it is. But when people are always asking Mark, whats going on, when you fighting next etc etc, should he not tell people whats happening and just stay quiet?

DKP still staying in touch and not being silent is a good thing.

For once Sally I kind of agree with you, I think DKP might throw Mark in the deep end to. Mark has been waiting for his time for so many years now, he is ready. He will sink or swim, either way the crowd won't leave bored.
