Al is one of the best in the business. Even in the first fight with Agbeko he wasn't really that critical of Mares. They kept talking about how bad of a job Russell Mora was doing. Mares is a great body puncher but throws a lot of low and borderline punches and he should be criticized for throwing low. There was no excuse for the low blow he landed on Agbeko in 12th round of the first fight. He head wasn't being pushed down in that exchange or many of the other exchanges in that fight.
Mares fought a good fight and he deserves credit for the win. Even though some of the officiating has favored him in fights he clearly won, these bad call by the refs take a little away for the win.
