By James Blears

New WBC featherweight champion Abner Mares (26-0-1, 14KOs) is strongly hinting that silver champion, number one contender and fellow Mexican Robinson Castellanos (18-9, 11KOs) could very well be his next opponent. Abner was at hand in Mexico City to be presented with the green and gold belt, by WBC President Jose Sulaiman. And Abner suggested:

I dont have a preference. But I do realize that Robinson is the challenger and that hes earned his spot. He went all the way to Panama and was successful, and I think he deserves his chance for the title. Robinson is the guy who deserves the opportunity.

Abner whos also said he want his first defense to be on home turf in Guadalajara, or in Mexico City.

Guillermo Rigondeaux whos WBA and WBO world champion at super bantamweight defeated Abner as an amateur. Hes recently said hed like to repeat the dose in the pro ring. Grinning and not in the least nettled, Abner dubbed Rigondeaux a defensive fighter.

He added: I wouldnt mind fighting him, as hes been running his mouth. But he doesnt want to move up to 126 pounds. Andall my eyes are on whos at featherweight.

Abner said hed also consider going for a fourth title at super feather commenting: If my body lets me move up and I feel strong Ill most definitely try. Why not!

Its a risk but boxing is a risk and Ill try my luck. Im capable of going up to super featherweight because of my skills.

Abner has raised the bar so high on competition that there is no reason for him to fight an 18-9 fighter.

[QUOTE=Hands of Iron]He's willing to go back down if the fight were to ever seriously present itself, but would prefer to stay at 126.[/QUOTE] If he doesn't mind going down to 122, why would he even bring up Rigo not wanting to come to 126? [QUOTE]He added: I wouldnt mind fighting him, as...

[QUOTE=blak81]Props and respect to Mares. A fighters favorite fighter. I do want to point out that Rigondeaux has been calling Mares before he went to 122 and Mares recently said he would love down to 122 to fight Rigo so I'm a bit confused why he said Rigo wn't come up to 126. Hmm.....[/QUOTE...
