Agbeko-Mares, Darchinyan-Perez Eyed For March, April

By Rick Reeno

Ken Thompson, president of Thompson Boxing, is working with Golden Boy Promotions and Gary Shaw to finalize the date and venue for the second half of the bantamweight tournament. The main event will feature the tournament final, with Joseph Agbeko defending his IBF title against undefeated Abner Mares. In the co-feature, the two boxers who lost in the first half of the tournament, Vic Darchinyan and Yonnhy Perez, will collide in a consolation bout.

According to Thompson, the Showtime televised doubleheader is possibly going to land in late March or early April. The Home Depot Center in Los Angeles, California is being explored as the potential venue.

My money is on Agbeko but I kind of want Mares to win. May the best man win.

my bet is on mares, but if abedko can box the way he did against perez, mares' pressure style may work against him.

[B]Mares and Darchinyan FTW. Though Mares takes it all. And I'd expect Yohnny to give Vic a hard time.[/B]
