The super bantamweight world champion of the World Boxing Council (WBC), Abner Mares, is looking at the possibility of moving up to the featherweight divison if he can't get a unification clash with WBO champion Nonito Donaire. Mares is not holding his breath for the fight to happen, as their respective promoters are involved in a bitter feud.

"My promoter (Golden Boy) and Top Rank said they are pushing for this fight, but to be frank I'm hopeful that some day they can do it and it disappoints me a lot [that it's not happening] because it's a big fight for me and people want it," said Mares.

Mares doesn't have an issue with facing undefeated Leo Santa Cruz, the IBF world champion at bantamweight, but says his team is clearly asking for Donaire.

"I have no problems with confronting Santa Cruz, he's very good - but it disappoints me a lot because I'm asking for a big fight like Nonito and [they] want me to fight someone else," Mares said.

He doesn't rule out the possibility of going up to the featherweight division to target a possible third crown.

"In my division there is nothing but opponents who are just coming up and I do not want to be step [for them]. I want to fight the best and right now I [I'm thinking about going to featherweight] to face a champion in that division," Mares said.

This is one of those fights that both fighters are riding high and should meet but looks like it is not happening ala May/Pac Such a shame that the boxing politics won't allow it to happen

[QUOTE=4Corners]Hey Reyes, it looks like Donaire-Rigo may actually happen. Apparently Rigo's contract extension guaranteed a Donaire fight in his next 3 fights.[/QUOTE] It won't be the first time that Bob don't do what he is supposed to do...

[QUOTE=SoggyLungs]lol true...his 122 resume is pretty much non existent. i think he'd be too small for 126 too..why not just fight santa cruz if he can't get donaire and rigo since they're with top rank?[/QUOTE] Santa Cruz is also campaigning @ 118...the Mares problem is that the SBW division ...
