Joseph Agbeko will try to regain his IBF bantamweight title when he rematches undefeated Abner Mares this Saturday night at the Honda Center, with Showtime televising.

Their first fight, which took place earlier this year,†was marred with controversy as referee Russell Mora refused to deduct a point from Maresí who hit Agbeko with repeated low blows. He also inexcusably ruled Agbeko down in the 11th round when it was clear he was hit by a hard shot below the belt line.†

Agbeko however seems to be coming into this fight even more determined and confident than ever. During his recent open workout in Los Angeles, Agbeko advised if Mares is looking for a knockout, heíll end up getting knocked out.

ďOur last press conference he was talking about knockout and Iím glad he mentioned knockout. If he said he wants a knockout then Iím going to knock him out,Ē proclaimed Agbeko.

ďIím not predicting anything but if he wants knockout Iím going to give him a knockout. This fight belongs to me; itís my fight. Itís a fight Iím going to take home. Either by knockout or by points, itís definitely my fight. Iím winning this fight big timeĒ.

Even after sharing the ring with Mares for†twelve rounds, Agbeko still feels you canít know for sure what to expect from an opponent. Only because you saw something in the first fight, doesnít mean youíll see it again in a second. One thing he is sure about is what heíll bring to the fight on December 3rd.

ďThe only thing King Kong is going in for, Iím going in like a warrior. An African warrior. Iím going in for a war and Iím going in to beat his styleĒ.
