Rigondeaux vs Agbeko: Live streaming results and round-by-round coverage

Ed Mulholland/HBO

Guillermo Rigondeaux returns to HBO to face Joseph Agbeko in a super bantamweight championship bout from Atlantic City on Boxing After Dark.

Tonight at 9:45 pm EST on HBO and Sky Sports (UK), Guillermo Rigondeaux is back to defend his WBO and WBA super bantamweight titles against former bantamweight titleholder Joseph Agbeko in the main event of a triple-header edition of HBO Boxing After Dark. This is HBO's final live boxing broadcast of 2013.

Rigondeaux (12-0, 8 KO) is of course coming off of a defining win over Nonito Donaire earlier this year, which was followed by months of reports, speculation, and chatter that HBO wasn't going to bring the Cuban back because he wasn't exciting enough. It should be noted that Rigondeaux's co-promoter Bob Arum is basically the only guy who went on record saying this, which is weird, but hey, "it is what it is."

Agbeko (29-4, 22 KO) is a very capable fighter, but a big underdog tonight. The 33-year-old Ghanaian has fought just once since back-to-back losses to Abner Mares in 2011, and sat out all of 2012 while being (not) promoted by Don King.

Also on tonight's card, junior middleweight highlight reel James Kirkland (31-1, 27 KO) returns for the first time since March 2012, facing unbeaten prospect Glen Tapia (20-0, 12 KO) in a ten-round wild card fight, and Matthew Macklin (29-5, 20 KO) takes on Lamar Russ (14-0, 7 KO) in a ten-round middleweight bout.

Andrew Fruman will be handling tonight's live coverage, so join him for the fights!
