Mares Would Not Rule Out a First Defense With Terrazas

By Miguel Rivera

Last Saturday in El Paso, Guadalajara's Abner Mares (24-0-1 13 KOs) captured the vacant WBC super bantamweight title with a dominating twelve round unanimous decision over Puerto Rican veteran Eric Morel. While Mares wants to secure a unification with Nonito Donaire (28-0-1 18 KOs) - the WBC's silver champion at super bantamweight, Victor "El Vikingo" Terrazas (33-2-1, 19KOs), wants his earned opportunity to fight for the full championship.

Since suffering a ninth round TKO loss to Rendall Munroe in 2010, Terraras won his next eight bouts - which includes wins over Nehomar Cermeno and Fernando Montiel.

"Victor is certainly deserving [of a shot]. He's fought the best, and his last fight [against Jose Palma] was spectacular. Certainly it would be a great battle between two fighters from Guadalajara," said Mares to Ana Betancourt.

Mares will now take a two week break. He plans to travel to Mexico City and Guadalajara before returning to training camp.

Good fight. I wanted Donaire to fight either Nishioka or Rigondeaux, but a fight with Terrazas was also pretty good since Terrazas is big and strong, and just beat Montiel in good fashion, but hey Nonito is going to fight…

[QUOTE=ChiTown2Diego;12036395]Gotta appreciate fighters like Abner who really do want to fight the best possible opponent that his promoter can put in front of him. I'm just concerned about him burning out. The pace he's been on along with the level…
