Pictures from Abner Mares vs. Joseph Agbeko II & Vic Darchinyan vs. Anselmo Moreno
On December 3rd, 2011, the Bantamweight Tournament and its aftermath finally concluded with the Abner Mares vs. Joseph Agbeko 2 battle. Mares retained his new title belt by earning a close but clear unanimous decision over Agbeko. Also on the card was an intriguing fight between Vic Darchinyan and Anselmo Moreno, as Moreno got the biggest win of his career by controlling the tough Raging Bull. Relive all the action and build-up to these fights with this collection of Darchinyan-Moreno and Mares-Agbeko 2 pictures.
It was a very exciting card, featuring four of the best fighters in the bantamweight division. The first Mares-Agbeko fight was filled with fouls and controversy, so Mares really needed to come out and fight well, and fight clean, in order to cement his status. He did that and was able to beat Agbeko for a second time, this one without any questions.
Darchinyan had been hoping to win yet another title in his illustrious career, but was denied by the slick boxer Moreno, who was on the big stage in the United States for the first time in his career. Moreno is now in line for more big fights, potentially even against Mares.
