Jhonny Gonzalez Wants Abner Mares To Accept Fight

By Miguel Rivera

Two division world champion Jhonny Gonzalez (54-8, 46KOs) has launched a challenge at the newly crowned World Boxing Council (WBC) featherweight champion Abner Mares (26-0-1, 14KOs). Gonzalez lost the the WBC crown to Daniel Ponce De Leon via technical decision last September. Last Saturday in Las Vegas, Mares stopped Ponce De Leon in nine rounds to capture the belt.

Gonzalez had a rematch clause with Ponce, but now Mares holds the title. Gonzalez has already won two bouts since the loss to Ponce.

"I would have liked a rematch with Ponce de Leon, but now Abner Mares has the championship and we want to fight for the title. Abner has shown that he is not afraid of anybody," said González. "After the performance he gave on Saturday, knocking out Ponce, we know it will be a very difficult fight, but we have the discipline and skills to dethrone Mares. It will certainly be a war between Mexicans, the kind the fans love."

This fight actually makes alotta sense; gonzales had the rematch clause and Mares has an optional defense before taking on his WBC mandatory...why not?

I'd rather Jhonny be Gary Russell Jr's TBA for July and the winner of that fight Mares.
