IBF bantamweight Joseph Agbeko was scratched because of injury from the Showtime mini-tournament main event, but the Saturday show at the Nokia Theatre in LA will go on, in modified form.
Foe Abner Mares (21-0) still wants to fight, and matchmakers are scouring the land for a replacement for the 31-year-old Ghanian. The details of his injury are sketchy, but word is that he was having trouble making weight, and this week has been doing excess cardio to get to the desired poundage.

The Vic Darchinyan-Yonnhy Perez semifinal is still a go, we hear.

More details to come...
