Nacho: Mares vs. Gonzalez Will Not Go Past Six Rounds

By Rene Umanzor

According to veteran trainer Ignacio "Nacho" Beristaín, the featherweight match between Abner Mares (26-0-1, 14KOs) and Jhonny Gonzalez (54-8, 46KOs) will not go beyond six rounds on the 24th of August at the Stubhub Center of Carson, California. Nacho is training Gonzalez for the fight. Gonzalez lost his WBC featherweight title to Daniel Ponce De Leon last September with a technical decision verdict, but Mares knocked out Ponce in May to capture the belt. Now Gonzalez gets his opportunity to capture the title from the man who beat the man.

"I do not think this fight will be very short but I'm sure it won't reach the twelfth round. We are going in there with the belief that we'll reclaim the title, in a fight that I don't think will pass the sixth. Abner has come a long way physically, he is very strong and it is going to be difficult for the two of them because Jhonny is the bigger puncher. Jhonny is good fighter, and perhaps he fails to convince more people about his strength and the stamina in the jaw, but he is a very good boxer and he can hit very hard," Nacho said.

Mares is going to steamroll Gonzalez. Dude has a lot of wear and tear and got dropped in his fight before last against Osejo. He is done.

Mares is better overall in many aspects/the only thing keeping Jhonny in the bout will b his big punch, if he can get a clean shot in...

Perdon, Nachillo pero yo voy apoyar al compa Mares. Pero no voy a mentir la pelea es peligrosa

Nacho is right this fight won't go past 6th rounds. He used to train Mares and deep down inside he knows Mares will beat Gonzalez.
