ATLANTIC CITY -- Greetings from the Hurricane Sandy-ravaged Boardwalk, specifically Boardwalk Hall. We'll have one of the better main events of the year, the lightweight bout between Adrien Broner and Antonio DeMarco, in a separate post later. But keep coming back here for updates about the undercard, which is anchored by exciting American heavyweight Seth Mitchell facing the Kronk Gym's Johnathon Banks. Not much else on it, alas -- but Demetrius Hopkins is back in a middleweight bout (you know you were waiting for it!) and the Andre Hunter (of Seth Mitchell fame)-trained Terron Grant is there, too. The aforementioned Grant kicked off the card in pretty dominant fashion, fighting his fifth bout and ending matters in the 1st round. The lightweight prospect exacted a withering body toll on Abraham Esquivel (5-2). Oh, and he hit him in the head, too. I never got the impression that Esquivel was woozy from the punches, only that they hurt an awful lot. I wasn't sure he'd even get up after the first knockdown, but he got up after two more, too, befoe his corner wisely waved the white towel. These aren't the kind of fights that will tell you much about a prospect; I didn't get the impression Grant was super quick, and Esquivel connected here and there, and his record of two knockouts prior to this one would suggest he doesn't hit that hard, but he landed flush and with maximum leverage, so maybe he just ran into a couple tough guys prior.
