WBC featherweight champion Jhonny Gonzalez (55-8, 47KOs) feels better than ever after knocking out Abner Mares (26-1-1, 14KOs) in the first round of Saturday's fight at the StubHub Center in Carson, California. Gonzalez had some personal problems, and an injury, before last year's decision loss to Daniel Ponce De Leon. He was convinced of victory after examining Mares' mannerisms at their final press conference. He says Mares looked worried and very timid.

"I had some personal problems in the past but now they are behind me. Before the fight with Ponce De Leon I injured a rib. I was sparring and I injured a rib and I didn't want to cancel the fight. It was a big stage, an important show, Canelo Alvarez was fighting and I wanted to be on that card. I learned from that. Next time if I get hurt I won't fight," Gonzalez said.

"Since the press conference [I was confident that I would win]. This week, since the press conference. I wasn't able to go to the last press conference because I had a problem with my flight, but this week at the press conference I saw something in him. I saw something in him and I knew that I won the first round. He looked a little worried because he knew I was ready."

mares just needs to stay away from guys who can box him and have the power to stop him in his tracks (i.e. gonzalez, donaire, rigo, mikey garcia, etc...)..

People that say Mares was overhyped don't understand this...when you fight tough opposition and don't pick and choose carefully...when you will fight anybody not just fighters below your weight class or hyped fighters, these are the risks. Mares means what he says when he says he'll fight anyone,...

Mares hardly did anything wrong Saturday night. He was expecting a body shot, covered up his body, and got caught with left hook to the head instead. After that the fight was pretty much over. Even if he held on to survive the round he would have been blasted again because Gonzalez hits hard a...

[QUOTE=parrish duke]What is it that you see that makes you think JR is a little bit worried? First off the key to Mayweather that everyone seems to be missing is that 1) he trains year round 2) he fights at his walking around weight 3) he is 36 going on 37 years of age - where people really need ...

[QUOTE=parrish duke]Mares is not overhyped, stop bashing these fighters because they got beat. Gonzales is a tough fighter. Mares to me, just got careless and caught. If he would have held on I think he would have made it out of the round. Then who knows, But man how gracious he was in defeat spe...
