Abner Mares is a Mexican undefeated professional boxer, answers Nonito’s wish to unify all the belts at 122 lbs. (pounds). Though, he admired what the Filipino Flash did last July 7, 2012 at Home Depot Center in California, but it doesn’t impede the World Boxing Council super bantamweight champion Abner Mares to challenge Nonito “ the Filipino Flash” Donaire.
“He showed a lot. He’s always known for being skillful. He knows how to use the ring,” Mares said in an interview with Boxing Scene. “But I think I could give him a good fight.”
If this match will push through, this will give Nonito Donaire chances to become undisputed super bantamweight champion and add another belt into his WBO and new grab IBF belt from Jeffrey Mathebula, the WBC belt which in Abner Mares hand.
“(He got hit with) a lot of shots that he wasn’t supposed to,” Mares said. “It’s a future fight. We definitely are willing to fight this guy, and we want this fight. We’re definitely going to study him.” Mares added.
The only problem was that Abner Mares was a Golden Boy fighter and the Filipino Flash fighting under the Top Rank Promotions of Bob Arum. The two promotional companies are currently not in good terms.
“I think it can be worked out,” according to Mares. To my belief, I think it should be the first Top Rank-Golden Boy fight that should be made.” “Let’s ask for the promoters to come to an agreement,” Mares added.
