By William Trillo


The score was even at the end of the first period at The Honda Center an during the break Joseph “King Kong” Agbeko (28-3-1, 22 KOs) told fans as he signed autographs that he wants to even the score with WBC Silver Bantamweight Champion Abner Mares (22-0-1, 13 KOs)." King Kong" will get that chance this Saturday, Dec. 3 at Honda Center in Anaheim, Calif. as the two will square off again after a highly controversial and entertaining first fight. For Mares this one is about proving there would have not been a different outcome no matter what, he is sure he can win again.

As far as the game went, it was deadlocked at 1-1 at the end of the first period but after that it was all Ducks as they scored 3 more goals in the remaining 2 periods while shutting out a bewildered Montreal club. The Ducks snapped a seven game winning streak but that didn't stop Anaheim brass from giving coach Randy Carlyle his walking papers and hiring Bruce Boudreau as their new head coach. Duck management thanked Carlyle greatly for his hard work and dedication to their franchise, not the least of which was a Stanley Cup championship.
