Darchinian is getting his ass beat.

Just started watching. Definitely looking forward to the main event. Supporting Agbeko, but as they say, may the best man win.

I hope Vic does not move up in weight. I don't think he'll take he power with him. I'm hoping agbeko avenges his loss.

The ref is letting Mares' corner get away with caking vasoline all on that cut.

These guys are going for broke! Technically good stuff to watch. All thrown with thought and still mean intentions.

It really was fun seeing two top notch boxers using the jab so well to attack and set up, IMO, Agbeko won that one. Agbeko was definitely doing more damage with his jab and overall he imposed himself more.

Mares won with no doubt this time. I still hate him... Hope he gets Donaire in the spring.

BTW... Agbeko cant fight inside to save his life. EVERYTHING is a jab or straight. His hooks looked horrible. He had no uppercut to speak of. The uppercut is there all night. Donaire will stope Mares on an uppercut, IMO. Agbeko was too slow and didnt have the diversity in his aresenal. Didnt the guy who fought Darchinyan look just like Agbeko?? He fights like him too. They should fight each other. I hope they wear the same color trunks that night too.

I had it for Mares 8-4 or 116-112. The judges were way off with 118-110 3x each for Mares. Cheesy, you thought Agbeko won, what was your score? I thought it could have maybe been 115-113 for Mares or 7-5. He just did more in critical moments of the fight. The judges gave ALL close rounds it seems to Abner. Ref Moret was excellent. Abner shows he can fight clean and be a good fighter in doing that.

From what I saw, the fight was mostly an outside fight. Mares did land some shots to the body, but I thought that he also fought from the outside and overall, Agbeko's outside game did more damage. I agree though, Agbeko didn't show me that his inside game is where it should be if he wants to clearly beat boxers like Mares.

I missed the undercard, so I didn't see Agbeko's twin.

Lol did i not call it? EASY WORK for Mares. Lol it was obvious the first fight, mares had more tools and more ring iq. He took agbeko to school fighting a completely different style! Counter punching the majority of the fight and rocking agbekos at times. Left joseph crying, dazed and confused after that brilliant onslaught. Way to go Mares!

am i the only one who saw mares foul blatantly in the opening rounds and the ref get in agbeko and his corners shit for complaining about it!? mares was kidney punching him, pulling his head down and hit him low a few times. mares is a dirty fighter and doesn't have to be. he has skills. i think the dirty tactics are a weakness or lack of confidence. the ref sucked and i thought this fight was decided when it was made. agbeko was a fool to think he would get a fair shake in cali. his statement at the end was just him not wanting to sound like he was complaining. mares did outwork him and landed the better shots. agbeko was killing him with the jab but didn't follow it up with anything significant. disappointing fight to watch.

I wasn't able to pay attention to the initial rounds, so I missed that. The rounds that I did see where by no means a steal for Mares and I gave the fight to Agbeko because his jabs were definitely catching and hurting Mares( plus he definitely threw enough to make the damage count), but as was mentioned earlier you've got to have a good inside game too when fighting top boxers.
