By Salvador Rodriguez

According to Golden Boy Promtions head matchmaker Eric Gomez, former three division world champion Abner Mares (26-1-1, 14KOs) is now likely to return as part of the Showtime Pay-Per-View undercard to Saul "Canelo" Alvarez vs. Erislandy Lara, which takes place on July 12th from the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Mares has been inactive since suffering a first round TKO defeat at the hands of Jhonny Gonzalez last August. They were set for a rematch in February, but then Mares withdrew with a rib injury. Mares then appeared to be returning on Golden Boy's Showtime date of June 21, which is now being ruled out.

The WBC recently ordered a final eliminator between Mares and Jayson Velez, who Golden Boy co-promotes with Miguel Cotto. A date of May 29 has been set down for the purse bid, but Velez expects Mares to take another direction.

Another fight that might appear on Canelo-Lara, according to promoter Fernando Beltran of Zanfer Promotions, is the mandatory lightweight bout between champion Omar Figueroa and challenger Daniel Estrada.

Abner is one of my favorites. Great move to come back on a big stage. Can't wait for this card.

He needs to get back in the mix ASAP. Take an mma perspective to losing, it doesn't mean jack.

[QUOTE=PBP]I sure hope so. This undercard is trash right now.[/QUOTE] **** that ***** unless its a rematch against jhonny on the canelo lara card then **** him which it wont be.
