Abner Mares: Gonzalez Will Not Knock Me Out Again!

By Rene Umanzor

Abner Mares (26-1-1, 14KOs), the former World Boxing Council featherweight champion, is concentrated on his rematch against Jhonny Gonzalez (55-8, 47KOs). The fight will take place on February 15 at Staples Center in Los Angeles. Their first meeting took place on August 24th at the StubHub Center, where a shocking result took place when Mares was dropped and stopped in the first round.

"He is coming with the confidence that he knocked me out in one round. It was a good shot and I won't take anything away from him, but that won't happen again. I'll be in Mexico City for a week before the fight and after that time I'll fly to Los Angeles," Mares said.

The former Olympian will continue to work with Clemente Medina in his corner, plus Luis Garcia, who will do the physical work.

"I will continue with my entire team. I came to terms with my coach and I think I made the right choice," he said.

Mares has to box his a** off in this rematch. Sometimes Mares telegraphs his punches and gets caught. He can't afford to do that with Gonzalez or he will get blitz again.

Mares could not recover because Jhonny threw a HUGE bomb and landed.. It happens. Mares was not thinking JG was going to come out like that. I for one think Mares will dominate the rematch. He has faced much better…
