Abner Mares Workout

Story and photos by Francisco Salazar

Bantamweight Abner Mares (21-0-1, 13 KO’s) put in a hard day’s work at the Elite MMA Academy in Santa Fe Springs on Friday in preparation for his bout against Joseph Agbeko on August 13th at the Hard Rock Casino in Las Vegas. “I feel great,” Mares told Fightnews.com early Friday afternoon. “We’re right where we want to be with my weight. Joseph seems like a slow guy, but he is sneaky in landing those right hands, so we have to fight smart and look for those punches.” Mares said that he weighed in at 123.5 pounds and is benefitting from sparring bigger fighters in unbeaten Raul Hirales, Jr. and Efrain Esquivias. Mares is trained by Clemente Medina. Click here for more photos…

Fury inspired by McIlroy

Rory McIlroy has the golfing world at his feet and another 22-year-old Irishman, Tyson Fury believes he can do the same in the ring over the next 12 months.

Fury said: “Rory McIlroy is an inspiration to every young sports man and woman and I’m no different.

Mares-Agbeko, take two

Story and photos by Chris Cozzone

With the air only a rematch can produce, Joseph “King Kong” Agbeko (28-2, 22 KOs) and Abner Mares (21-0-1, 13 KOs) officially announced their showdown today at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas.

Only problem is, the two have never fought before.

It only seems so for, in April, just six days before the two were to step into the ring to decide the winner of Showtime’s bantie tourney, Agbeko was floored – literally – with sudden onset sciatica of the lower back. Rather than find a last minute sub for Mares, the finale was delayed . . . Click here for more
