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.
