Jhonny Gonzalez: Mares Rematch on March 8 or March 15

By Salvador Rodriguez

WBC featherweight champion Jhonny Gonzalez (55-8, 47KOs) expects the rematch with Abner Mares (26-1, 14KOs) to take place on either March 8 or March 15.

If the date lands on March 8th, it would be part of Saul "Canelo" Alvarez's undercard at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

The rematch was scheduled for February 15th at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, and had to be postponed when Mares suffered a rib injury.

They first met last August at the StubHub Center, where Gonzalez shockingly stopped Mares in the first round.

"I only know that Richard (Schaefer) - the CEO of Golden Boy - said it would take place in a month (from the old date). The date of March 15, which is unofficial, was being looked at for the fight. But on Monday Golden Boy is getting us a new date. We are not ruling out either that the fight will be on for March 8 in Las Vegas, on the same day Canelo Alvarez comes back. It may get the event more attention, but we'll be ready for any date," Gonzalez said.
