Re: The all things technical thread.
How anyone who has seen his fights can think he's an innocent party is beyond me. I'm a fan of Mares but that first Agbeko fight was disgusting and left a bad taste in my mouth. I don't mind roughhouse tactics but he was being clearly and intentionally illegal and he new the ref wouldn't say anything to him. That's why he was so blatant.
I also want to point something else out in that fight, which sickened me. Agbeko’s corner did him a MASSIVE disservice. They should have been ALL over the referee. I also think Agbeko did himself a disservice. There is no way he should have allowed a man to tee off on his groin like that and not do the same in return. Most fighters who break the rules whether knowingly or unknowingly, don’t enjoy when the same rules are broken against them. Some of the best fighters you will ever see are rule stretchers. If the ref is not going to stop them, then freaking do it back to them and see how they like it. Agbeko is a man’s man, but he should have went low right back at Mares.
Mares has to be becareful. One of these days the chickens are ganna come home to roost...
