In of the ugliest performances by a boxer we have seen in recent years, Abner Mares faced Joseph Agbeko on August 13 for the Showtime Bantamweight Tournament Championship trophy. In a fight that could have been otherwise very competitive, Mares continuously hit Agbeko with low blows from Round 1 all the way to Round 12. It was an ugly display by Mares but an even uglier one by referee Russell Mora who allowed him to get away with over 15 low blows on his way to winning the fight. 

As consequence of his performance that night, Abner Mares now shares an ugly reputation with some iconic unsportsmanlike fighters such as the nine others featured on this article.
