Professional boxing career
Demmings' career began in inauspicious fashion with two losses in his first four fights, before he began an unbeaten streak than ran to 19 bouts over three years. Demmings then fought Sugar Ray Seales for a minor title, a bout which he lost in a 15-round decision. Demmings would subsequently fight (and lose to) "Marvelous" Marvin Hagler, Alan Minter, Dwight Davison, Wayne Caplett (three times), Alex Blanchard, and John "The Beast" Mugabi. At the time of his retirement in 1983 Demmings had compiled a record of 31-12 with 14 wins by knockout.
