By Alfredo Jaime Gomez, notifight.com

Former champion Abner Mares (25-0-1, 13KOs) is looking for his third world championship. After winning titles at bantamweight and super bantamweight, Mares has set his sights on a the WBC's featherweight crown. A few weeks ago Mares vacated WBC title at super bantamweight and announced his plan to move up in weight to 126-pounds.

According to Mares' manager, Frank Espinoza, Abner will debut at featherweight in mid-April on U.S. soil against a yet to be determined opponent.

The WBC title is owned by Daniel Ponce De Leon (44-4, 35KOs), who Espinoza also manages. Ponce De Leon defends the title against undefeated Puerto Rican Jayson Velez (20-0, 15KOs) on March 2 in New York City.

"The green belt (WBC) is the biggest and I want another one. At this weight there are some very good opponents and I want the best, so we're train hard. The guy to beat at super bantamweight was Nonito Donaire. I challenged him several times and he always rejected me, so I decided to drop my WBC title. I want the winner of Daniel Ponce De Leon and Jayson Velez. Mexicans have great fights," Mares said.

[QUOTE=ELHURACAN58]Mares is really not featherfisted, his power hovers around 60% problem is he doesnt know know how to finish them. In truth I would like to see Vazquez Jr. vs Mares.[/QUOTE] I agree.....

[QUOTE=jtcs1981]Which one? Him struggling against Beranza? Fighting a non skill like Sanchez, anyone can look good. And other youtube videos I seen of him, he is nothing special. I dont understand why Mares wants to move up. He can fight and dominate at 122 and a fight in the future again...

mares should at least beat someone ranked at 122 before heading to 126...why not defend against terrazas? all he did at 122 was beat morel and moreno both of whom weren't ranked in the division. what's the rush?
