Agbeko Heads To America For Mares Training Camp

According to GNA Sports, Joseph Agbeko (28-3, 22KOs) has left the shores of Ghana for the United States, where he plans to stay until the day of his rematch with Abner Mares (22-0-1, 13KOs), scheduled for December 3rd at the Honda Center in California. Agbeko made his way to Kotoka International Airport in the company of his coach and other members of his team. Agbeko lost a controversial twelve round decision, and his IBF bantamweight title, to Mares in August. In the aftermath, the IBF ordered an immediate rematch.
