Tonight at 10 p.m. EDT on Showtime, Joseph Agbeko puts his IBF bantamweight title on the line tonight against Abner Mares at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. Bad Left Hook will have live round-by-round coverage of the fight.
Agbeko (28-2, 22 KO) is recovering from a back injury that postponed this fight, originally scheduled for April 23. Mares (21-0-1, 13 KO) is the betting favorite, and is the favorite among Bad Left Hook staffers and it seems most media, as well. He's the younger man, and has proven himself in the ring in his last two bouts against top competitors Yonnhy Perez and Vic Darchinyan. Agbeko has also fought and defeated both of those men, so these two have plenty of common history.
If Agbeko is 100% physically, boxing fans should expect no less than a very good fight tonight. Agbeko and Mares are both physical, tough-minded fighters who bring action. Join us tonight!
