Report: Lytle vs. Hardy

Report by Anthony Springer Jr.

Chris Lytle did it his way. With more than 50 fights to his name, “Lights Out” decided to call it a career after his UFC on Versus bout with Dan Hardy. With time ticking away on his career, Lytle caught Dan Hardy with a tight guillotine to force the late round tap. Lytle shined throughout the fight, blasting Hardy in the opener with a series of looping right hands. When he wasn’t going to the face, the fulltime firefighter scored with some big body shots. “The Outlaw” seemed a step or two slower during the bout. There were brief signs of life from the UK fighter in the second. He rocked Lytle with a hard shot but was unable to finish the bout. An unintentional eye poke from Lytle temporarily halted the momentum Hardy was mounting. When the bout resumed, the pendulum swung back in the veteran fighter’s direction. Hardy’s undoing came in trying to steal the third round with a takedown. After lunging at Lytle, the father and husband quickly locked in the guillotine and rolled Hardy over, forcing him to tape at the 4:16 mark. “I just want to tell you guys, I honestly love being a fighter,” an emotional Lytle said with two of his kids by his side. “I love it more than anything in my life except for one thing, that’s my family. It’s time for me to dedicate my time to them an stop putting myself first. It pains me to do it but I’m making the right choice.” Lytles professional mark stands at 31-18-5. He also racked up 10 fight night bonuses. (more…)

A referee is supposed to be the invisible third man in the ring. Never should he make a difference in how the fight ends. Russell Mora changed all of that on Saturday nigh at Showtime’s Bantamweight Tournament Final between IBF champion Joseph Agbeko (28-3, 22 KOs) and WBC Silver titlist Abner Mares (22-0-1, 13 KOs) . . .

There was only one thing on everyone’s mind after Abner Mares defeated Joseph Agbeko via majority decision in the finals of the Showtime Bantamweight Tournament to claim Agbeko’s IBF title to go along with his WBC Silver title – how did referee Russell Mora do such a terrible job officiating? It was mindboggling how a usually reliable ref can ruin an excellent fight. The obvious foul fest tainted Mares’ performance on Saturday night at the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas, NV and Joseph Agbeko was none too happy about what took place in the ring . . .

More on Mares-Agbeko

Photos: Tom Casino/SHOWTIME

In a great action fight Saturday marred by puzzling officiating by the referee that left fans at The Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, those watching on SHOWTIME® and the telecast team themselves totally perplexed, Abner Mares won The Bantamweight Tournament Final: Winner Takes All and the International Boxing Federation (IBF) bantamweight title with a majority 12-round decision over defending IBF titlist Joseph King Kong Agbeko. The unbeaten Mares (22-0-1, 13 KOs), of Hawaiian Gardens, Calif., scored two knockdowns – one in the first and one in the 11th that was one hotly disputed – en route to outpointing the New York-based Agbeko (28-3, 22 KOs) of Ghana by the scores of 115-111 twice and 113-113.

But talk afterward centered less on the terrific performances of the talented, proud prizefighters and more on the referee, Russell Mora, whose failure to deduct a point from the winner despite at least five warnings for low blows and several other shots that seemed south of the border left many in disbelief.

Mares wins SHOWTIME tourney

In the long awaited SHOWTIME Bantamweight Tournament Final, unbeaten Abner Mares (22-0-1, 13 KOs) laid his claim to being the world’s best 118-pounder by dethroning IBF bantamweight champion Joseph King Kong Agbeko (28-3, 22 KOs) via a controversial twelve round majority decision on Saturday night in the highly acclaimed at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas.

Mares was erroneously credited with a knockdown by referee Russell Mora in round after Agbeko slipped. Mares was quicker and landed the cleaner shots, and also repeatedly hit Agbeko low without getting a point deduction. Agbeko came on late but went down in the eleventh from a clear low blow which Mora called another knockdown. Scores were 113-113, 115-111, 115-111.
