Weights: Agbeko is Slightly Over, Abner Mares at 117.5

By Ryan Burton, at the scale

Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, Nev. - The weights are in for Saturday night's big main event. The finalists of Showtime's bantamweight tournament, Joseph "King Kong" Agbeko (28-2, 22KOs) and Abner Mares (21-0-1, 13KOs), will clash over twelve rounds for the IBF and WBC silver bantamweight titles. The fight will take place at The Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, Nev.

IBF champion Joseph Agbeko failed to make weight on both of his allotted attempts. On the second attempt he was slightly over the limit at 118.2 pounds.  His opponent Abner Mares, the WBC silver bantamweight titlist, came in a ripped and ready 117.5 pounds. Agbeko has two hours to lose the weight. 

Agbeko and Mares were scheduled to meet last April 23, but the fight was postponed when Agbeko was injured moments after his arrival at Los Angeles International Airport for fight week. Doctors diagnosed the champion with sudden onset sciatica, a back injury.

[QUOTE=DiegoFuego;10979747]I love how nobody makes weight anymore. And nobody cares that nobody makes weight. If I was boxing today and was as big a name as say...Amir Khan is now, I would never make weight. What are they going to…
