Nacho: Abner Mares Will Be Tough, But Not Invincible

By Miguel Rivera

Trainer Ignacio "Nacho" Beristain is confident his Jhonny Gonzalez (54-8, 46KOs) will recover the featherweight world title of the World Boxing Council (WBC), when he faces champion Abner Mares (26-0-1, 14KOs)on August 24th in Carson, California. Nacho, the trainer of such fighters as Juan Manuel Marquez, says the underdog role is motivating Gonzalez even further as a fighter. Gonzalez was unseated when he lost a technical decision last year to Daniel Ponce De Leon, who Mares knocked out in May to capture the crown.

"I enjoy studying his opponents and we talked about the strategy. We will not fail, and he is also very motivated. Mares is a great fighter, who is going through a great moment in his career, but he is not invincible. He does make some errors that Jhonny can take advantage of. Mares also has the pressure of being a heavy favorite who is going up against a very technical fighter with a very fearsome punch of fear," Nacho said Beristain. "Jhonny will regain the championship and then move forward to fulfill his next dream."

This should be a great fight unless Gonzalez fights the way he did against Vazquez. That will get him stopped again!
