Boxing champion Tony DeMarco gets a statue

Better look out for that left hook! After years of planning, a bronze statue of former world welterweight champion Tony DeMarco will be unveiled this weekend in the North End.

The statue, designed by Harry Weber, who also sculpted TD Garden’s Bobby Orr statue, has been installed in front of the Mother Anna’s restaurant at the corner of Hanover and Cross streets, said Philip Privitera, a long-time DeMarco friend and president of the Privitera Family Charitable Foundation.
