Jessie Vargas (L) and Antonio DeMarco during the official weigh-in ahead of their WBA World Super Lightweight Title bout at the Cotai Arena in Macau on November 22, 2014American Jessie Vargas outpointed his Mexican rival Antonio DeMarco Sunday to retain his World Boxing Association super lightweight title in a pulsating fight in Macau. The champion from Las Vegas, with legendary fighter Roy Jones Jr making his debut as a trainer in his corner, got the better of his valiant opponent in a fight which exploded into life from the fifth round onwards. Both men were heavily marked at the end of a toe-to-toe 12-round battle, in which Vargas consistently landed the better shots to take a unanimous decision 116-112 on all three judges' scorecards. DeMarco had many moments when he seemed to be getting on top, particularly in the ninth when he wobbled Vargas with a fierce straight left which sent him reeling back into DeMarco's own corner.

Zuckerberg said that while a newspaper provides the same information to every reader, Facebook can tailor its feed to the interests of the individual, delivering a mix of world news, community events and updates about friends or family. "It's a different approach to newspapering," said Ken Paulson, a former editor of USA Today who is now dean of communications at Middle Tennessee State University.
