Gonzalez: If I Were Mares, I Wouldn't Do Fast Rematch

By Rene Umanzor

Jhonny González, the World Boxing Council (WBC) featherweight champion, has no problem with facing Abner Mares for a second time in a row, but doesn't think it's such a good idea. Last Saturday night in California, Gonzalez shocked the odds by scoring a first round knockout of Mares. There was a rematch clause, which Mares exercised a few days ago. The rematch should take place before the end of the year.

"The rematch [taking place] does not depend on me, it is a matter of what my promoters will present. I am ready for the moment they tell me to face this opponent or that opponent, with a good purse, and I'll go prepare myself," Gonzalez said. "If I were him, I would not do an immediate rematch after a knockout of that magnitude, because after such a defeat you are not doing well emotionally, but if his promoters are asking for it right now then we'll do the fight."

Sounds like he feels bad. Probably going to let him win the rematch Mitchell-Banks 2 style

mares is embarrassed by the loss rather then proving that he's a "warrior" he's embarrassed. wrong move on his part. mares needs lots and lots of sparring & a soft touch (let him build up his confidence) going into this…
