Agbeko Vows: I Know That I Will Knock Mares Out!

By Chris LaBate

Former champion Joseph "King Kong" Agbeko has vowed to score a knockout in his rematch with IBF/WBC silver king Abner Mares. A few weeks ago in Las Vegas, Mares won a controversial twelve round decision over Agbeko to unify the titles. Because of the poor officiating by the referee, who allowed numberous low blows on the part of Mares and botched two knockdown calls, the IBF ordered an immediate rematch.

The rematch could possibly take place in early December and this time Agbeko is not going to allow the fight to reach the scorecards.

“I didn’t promise that I will knock out Abner Mares before but it’s now that I will promise that I will knock him out. I think I’ve now faced him and I know I will stop him so I’m just getting back into the training routine and when we finally get a date, I will beat him,” Agbeko was quoted by GhanaWeb.

[QUOTE=El Talegon;11053968]You will not beat Mares.. quit it.[/QUOTE] Agbeko already did win technically because if the ref did his job, Agbeko would have won because Mares would have been deducted points for lowblows or dq'd.
