Sport Bookie: Abner Mares will put undefeated record on the line
By Andrew Scott Thursday, 29 August 2013 07:27
Sport bookies learned that Abner Mares wants to put his undefeated record on the line when making the first defence of his WBC featherweight title on Saturday night in his fight against Jhonny Gonzalez in Carson, California.
Price per head services saw that in April, Mexican Mares became a three-weight champion when he beat Daniel Ponce De Leon in the ninth round of their title bout.
And bookmakers UK services can see that Mares enters the fight against former champion Gonzalez as the big favourite with sport bookies, having a solitary draw staining an otherwise perfect 27-fight professional career.
But bookmakers UK and price per head services found out that the 27-year-old has plenty of respect for the challenger, who before losing to Ponce De Leon made four successful defences of the belt.
“I won’t disappoint, I promise you a great fight like I always do,” said Mares. “This is another tough fight, but I want to fight nothing but the best.
“Champion, ex-world champion, whoever you bring, whoever the fans want me to fight, you know I’ll fight. I like and admire Jhonny Gonzalez.
“I like his style of fighting and know his camp because ‘Nacho’ Beristain was my trainer for three years. I know the style and it’s nothing but finesse and nothing but pureness.
“I’m ready to experience coming out and putting on a real show for the fans.”
And sports bookies know that Gonzalez (54-8), who earlier in his career also held the WBO bantamweight title, is still a threat with 46 stoppage wins to his name.
“The question I’ve been asked the most is if I am looking at this as my last chance at the big time,” said the 31-year-old from Mexico. “Well, I am not. One way to stop getting this question from the media is to win on Saturday.
“Every fighter wants to get a shot at the world title, and then to win it, but my body feels good and I still feel I have a lot of fight left in me. I’m not looking ahead, but I can see a possible move to super featherweight in the future.
