Abner Mares Joseph Agbeko Result


As one cheat was defeated, another was forgiven. Last night Abner Mares fought Joseph Agbeko in a rematch that should have gotten more attention. He produced a superb display to keep his IBF and WBC Silver Bantamweight titles.

The pair met at the Honda Center, California, the home of the hockey team Anaheim Ducks. Mares and Agbeko were the main event in an undercard that included Eric Morel, Sakio Bika, Frankie Gomez and Carlos Molina.


How The Seed Were Sown



When the pair last met in August, Mares forgot the rules of boxing and spent the fight throwing blows to Agbeko's groin. This would have been fine had he been caught and punished, but the referee Russell Mora let him get away with it. In the eleventh round, one of the low blows was ruled a knockdown.

Without this knockdown, and with a point deduction given to Mares, Joseph Agbeko may well have win their first fight.

Without this knockdown, Agbeko may have won their first fight.


Abner Mares Proves Himself

We had the ingredients for a great fight. There was a poplar underdog, a plot of a revenge and two world title belts. What a pity it was that the fight was scheduled the same night as Cotto / Maragrito.

Their rematch should have made big news, as it would had it not been scheduled to take place in the same Saturday as one of the biggest rematches in boxing history. It didn't matter to Mares and Agbeko though; they out on a great fight.

Agbeko started well but he seemed to lose it and he allowed Mares into the fight. I can't pretend that Mares fought clean this time because he did get away with some foul play. But it was nowhere near as blatant as last time.

By the end of the fight Mares face looked like he'd massacred a bunch of rabbits. He fought through the blood and outboxed Agbeko, giving him a unanimous decision with of 118-110.

There can't be any complaints about Mares now because he has shown his skill in the ring. He is better than Agbeko and deserves the titles he holds.
