Okay, so only a handful of fight fans crammed into the Hard Rock’s Lounge to watch yesterday’s uneventful weigh-in. Tonight’s bantamweight showdown between Joseph “King Kong” Agbeko and Abner Mares should make up for the slow pre-fight “build-up.” Both fighters made attempts at yesterday’s weigh-in. Agbeko tried to get Mares to flinch during their face-off (it didn’t work) and Mares’ team wore black T-shirts depicting an Aztec warrior holding up the head of a gorilla with “The Death of King Kong” beneath it – not the most political thing to do (just ask David Haye how that worked for his fanfare.)
