Photos: Mares-Gonzalez, Terrazas-Santa Cruz Weigh-In

By Jake Donovan

All four televised participants successfully made weight for Saturday’s SHOWTIME-televised doubleheader, which airs live from the StubHub Center in Carson, California.

The headliner features Abner Mares (26-0-1, 14KO) in the first defense of his featherweight belt, which comes against its former claimant, Jhonny Gonzalez (54-8, 46KO).

Mares came in at 125.5 lb. in his first fight since winning the belt from Daniel Ponce de Leon this past May. Gonzalez came in slightly lighter at 125 lb., in his attempt to become a two-time featherweight titlist.

In the televised co-feature, all-action former bantamweight titlist Leo Santa Cruz seeks his second title reign, as he faces reigning 122 lb. titlist Vic Terrazas (37-2-1, 21KO).  

Santa Cruz, who previously reigned as bantamweight titlist, tipped the scales at 121.75 lb. Terrazas came in slightly lighter at 121 lb for the first defense of the belt, which he won in his vacant title fight versus Cristian Mijares earlier this year.

Sounds like people are underestimating Jhonny Gonzalez.If anything, He has the power which is enough to put anyone down. Going to be a great card.
