It’s been a long, hot summer and it’s still got a way to go….Hope you’re all well and enjoying it 다운로드.

At the Hard Rock in Las Vegas this Saturday, on Showtime TV, Abner Mares and Joseph Agbeko put it all on the line for the IBF bantamweight crown 다운로드.

Mares, a native of Mexico, now living in Southern California, sports a record of 21-0-1 with 13 knockouts.

Agbeko, a hard hitter from Ghana brings another strong record into the ring, 28-8 (22) 다운로드.

Agbeko is only 28, but he has fought most of the iron in the bantamweight division and done well against them.

Mares 23, doesn’t have quite the same caliber of opponents, but he is exciting to watch in the ring 다운로드.

Size wise, they match up well, although Mares has a three inch reach advantage.

Although it should be a great fight to watch, this is a hard fight to pick as I can see Mares winning a decision and/or Agbeko winning via a stoppage.

Okay time to put my butt on the line again……Mares by decision.

Glove to Glove:
