Agbeko collapses, fight off

By Flattop

Don King Productions publicist Alan Hopper has informed FightNews that IBF bantamweight champion Joseph Agbeko (28-2, 22 KOs) has been forced to pull out of Saturday’s fight with SHOWTIME Bantamweight Tournament Final against undefeated WBC Silver titlist Abner Mares (21-0-1, 13 KOs) due a back condition called “sudden onset sciatica.” Agbeko collapsed Monday night in Los Angeles and after an examination, doctors said the fight is a no-go. It is not yet known if the card at Nokia Theatre L.A. LIVE in downtown Los Angeles will go on with a replacement opponent for Mares, just the other fights as scheduled or if the whole card will be postponed. Stay tuned.
