Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

Joseph Agbeko tookcare of business on his first return to the ring in

17 months, pounding Filipino opponent, Juanito Rubillar Saturday night

in the El Paso County Coliseum, EL Paso, Texas, USA.

Agbeko, the former three-time world bantamweight champion, has lost

some recent tough decisions —and his title.

He needed this win to get back into the title picture and he got just

that with a fourth-round technical knockout over veteran Juanito

Rubillar (49-23-7) of the Phillipines in their super bantamweight


Agbeko (now 30-6, 26 knockouts) cut Rubillar over the left eye in the

second round and continued to use good angles, good combinations to

finish off his opponent.

The fight was stopped at 1:31 in the fourth round as the cut continued

to get worse.

"It took me a few rounds to get warmed up," Agbeko said. "But this is

my best comeback."
