Abner Mares-Victor Terrazas Could Head To a Purse Bid
By Jose Luis Camarillo, notifight.com
The World Boxing Council could very well order a purse bid for the fight between WBC super bantamweight champion Abner Mares and his official challenger, Victor "Viking" Terrazas. Mares wants to unify with WBO champion Nonito Doniare, but Terrazas' promoter Fernando Beltran of Zanfer Promotions, is likely going to push the issue with his fighter securing a long awaited shot. Mares (25-0-1, 13KOs) won the title in April and made a vonuntary defense in November. Terrazas (36-2-1, 21KOs) won the WBC's silver title last year with a victory over Fernando Montiel and then he won a final WBC eliminator in April with Jose Palma.
Terrazas wont beat Mares, too much pace and too much talent. He beats Donaire though.Comment by lopez36 on 12-22-2012

This is another hindrance for possible face-off between Nonito and Mares. I think Mares needs to fight his official challenger first just to retain his title, otherwise if his belt stripped by his refusal to defend his belt, then Nonito…Comment by [email protected] on 12-22-2012
