BoxingScene.com has been advised that former three division champion Abner Mares (26-1, 14KOs) has suffered a rib injury while sparring in Mexico City. When reached on Monday afternoon, Mares' manager Frank Espinoza confirmed the reports that are circulating in Mexico.

"Yes, the reports in Mexico are accurate. Abner did injure a rib in sparring, but I don't know anything else [regarding the extent of the injury] because I'm not down there," Espinoza told BoxingScene.com.

Mares was scheduled to face WBC featherweight champion Jhonny Gonzalez on February 15th at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. The fight was a rematch of their August battle, which saw Gonzalez score a shocking first round knockout.

A new date is unknown at the moment, says Espinoza, who already reached out to Golden Boy Promotions to discuss a new date. However, sources informed BoxingScene's Chris Robinson that a date of March 15th has been mentioned.

It "seems" really hard to come back from a one shot drop and eventual KO like the one Mares received, especially when you are fighting the exact same fighter in your next fight. I say seems because I am not a fighter so I can only speculate. I feel like if Mares can make it past the first few...

I wish GBP would let Gary Russell Jr. fight Leo Santa Cruz on Mayweather's card instead of Mares/Gonzalez. That would be a great fight!

All Mares has to do is survive the first round, thats half the battle right there. He will have to fight the perfect fight, but i possibly got Gonzalez winning this one too, unless Mares lands clean first, since Jhonny doesn't have the best chin.

[QUOTE=El Angel]I always have trouble distinguishing sarcasm from you :lol1:[/QUOTE] You shouldn't have... I only write two types of posts here: 1) denotative argumental; 2) "sarcastic" (literature of the absurd has deep roots in my country -- I.L. Caragiale in the 19th century, Urmuz, Dadaism...
