Measuring Nonito Donaire vs. Abner Mares
the top dogs in the 122 Lbs. division, an undefeated super bantamweight champion with an all out no quits aggressive fighting style coupled with an impressive record up against the division's undisputed lineal champion who is arguably the most complete fighter in the entire lower weight division is a sure candidate for fight of the year, maybe even knock out of the year.
the mares-donaire fight is the fight that everybody's talking about. however, the fight may be difficult to make since golden boy and top rank, mares's and donaire's respective promoters, are not in a working relationship, to put it mildly. after an entertaining show stopping performance by mares, he called out donaire to face him next.
there is talk of dela hoya would even see arum in person by going to vegas to discuss a potential match between donaire-mares. i personally think it makes a lot of sense in terms of p4p draw not to mention also generate huge revenue. after the arce fight (which is obviously all about money), donaire's most logical move would be to face mares.
