Former 130 lbs. champion Rances BarthelemyÂ (23-0, 13 KOs) proved his power is still good at junior welterweight as he dropped Antonio DeMarco in the fourth round with a straight left that seemed to take a lot of the fight out of DeMarco. Barthelemy switched stances often and sort of lulled DeMarco into traps by baiting him into shots that looked at though he was unable to throw as it showed a distinction in skill level between the two fighters.
Barthelemy was deducted a point in the ninth round for hip shots, i.e. low blows, but it really didn't take away much as it was a dominant one sided victory. The judges scored the bout 99-89 for RancesÂ Barthelemy giving him every single with the exception of which being the round he lost a point in.
In the opening bout, unbeaten welterweight Sammy "The Who Can Mexican" Vasquez (18-0, 13 KOs) outboxed Â Wale "Lucky Boy" Omotoso (25-1, 21 KOs) over ten rounds on Sunday afternoon at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, but not without moments of high drama. Vasquez picked up rounds early and often essentially stealing the begining of the fight, knowing he was down Omotoso began to bring pressure for the last three to four rounds of the fight which saw Vasquez bloodied and at times looking like he might be in trouble. In the end Vasquez got the nod with the scores being 98-92 on all cards.

I don't do [many interviews]... When I did interviews... they sent their best at me... When they could not defeat our arguments, they decided to ban me from television; and they banned me from going to Black colleges, and even White colleges, to deliver a message. So... many people thought I had died.
- Minister Louis Farrakhan

When you hear the word "dark", the first thing that comes to mind is surely the opposite of light. This is not the case for the Bronx, NY native and hip-hop artist, "Darq." Darq managed to keep the light alive in a dark mind state. Since an early age, Darq had music ingrained in his soul. From break-dancing as a young boy to rocking his own shows in major cities across the country, such as, Philadelphia, Detroit, The Bay Area California, Las Vegas, Connecticut, all over the 5 boroughs of his hometown, NY, to name a few. As a teenager, Darq moved from New York, his birthplace and all he knew to an unfamiliar suburb outside of Philadelphia, PA. Being taken away from the place he loved took a lot of getting used to. Darq's never been a quitter and he used this change to expand his musical horizons. Darq infused the Bronx's raw, powerful, hip-hop background and Philly's soulful, alternative vibe and created a sound all his own. Darq keeps "the birthplace of hip-hop" close and travels back and forth, whenever he can, to record and create in the place he calls home.
Darq Raw has been featured in many different magazines. Hip-Hop Weekly, Rap Fanatic and Protege Magazines, and was on the cover of and featured in The Grynd Report Magazine Vol.7 - Darq Edition and he has 2 singles on iTunes, "R.A.W.(Risk it All Willingly)" and "RunAway" both featuring Amy Davis. He's been working with LiveNation and recently opened up for Machine Gun Kelly and Kid Ink, Freeway and Bone Thugs an Harmony at the T.L.A (Theater of the Living Arts) in Philadelphia.
