IBF and WBC Silver Bantamweight Champion Abner Mares and former two-time IBF Bantamweight World Champion Joseph King Kong Agbeko were the principals at a widely attended press conference Saturday to officially announce their highly anticipated rematch set for Saturday, Dec. 3, at Honda Center in Anaheim, Calif., which will be televised on Showtime. Right here, find a collection of quotes from Mares, Agbeko and their teams from that opening presser.
In the co-featured bout, WBA Bantamweight Super Champion Anselmo “Chemito” Moreno will defend his title against former Two-Division World Champion Vic “The Raging Bull’’ Darchinyan.
Here’s what those involved had to say on Saturday:
I’m really happy and ready to fight on Dec. 3. Right after the first fight I was asked if I had a problem with a rematch – I said ‘no.’
“I want to fight him again because he deserves it. He’s a great champion. If this is what the people want we’ll give it to them.
