StubHub Center, Carson, California - Jhonny Gonzalez (55-8, 47KOs) proved once again that he is one of the hardest punchers in the sport of boxing when he stopped previously undefeated Abner Mares (26-1-1, 14KOs) in the very first round to regain the WBC featherweight title. Mares was starting to warm up with his combinations when Gonzalez caight him cold on the chin. Mares went down hard on his back and barely made it up. Gonzalez went on the attack as Mares tried to fight him off, but Gonzalez dropped him hard for a second time and the referee waved things off.
