Mares vs Moreno in Serious Talks For 10/13 in Vegas

By Ryan Burton

BoxingScene.com has been advised that a fight between WBC super bantamweight champion Abner Mares (24-0-1) and WBA bantamweight champion Anselmo Moreno (33-1) is being discussed for October 13th at the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, NV. 

Sources close to the situation say that Mares' title would be at stake if a deal is reached. BoxingScene's Rick Reeno recently reported that a WBA lightweight title tilt between Richard Abril and Sharif Bogere is being negotiated to serve as the co-feature.

Showtime and Golden Boy are looking for a strong card to compete against HBO and Top Rank's doubleheader that takes place in Carson, CA that will feature Nonito Donaire facing Toshiaki Nishioka and Brandon Rios squaring off against Mike Alvarado.
 
Golden Boy Promotions and CBS are also planning on staging a show on October 14th at the Mandalay Bay to showcase the professional debuts of some of the 2012 Olympic class.

Mares is certainly the more proven that Moreno. But Moreno has beaten good fighters also. This is a great fight, great great fight. The best fighting the best. I'm picking Moreno by Decision but it won't be easy.
