Sulaiman: Abner Mares vs. Victor Terrazes Must Go Next

By Miguel Rivera

World Boxing Council President Jose Sulaiman has advised BoxingScene.com that Mexico's Victor "Viking" Terrazas (36-2-1, 21KOs) will be the next opponent for WBC super bantamweight champion Abner Mares (25-0-1, 13KOs). The match was ordered at last year's WBC convention. Out of respect for Mares, the WBC allowed him to proceed with negotiations to make a unification with WBO champion Nonito Donaire. After watching their negotiations fall apart, the WBC has told Golden Boy Promotions that Mares must face Terrazas. 

"Mares is becoming an idol and he does not need to fight with Nonito [to become one]. He must go against Victor Terrazas. We have a purse bid planned for this Friday, if the promoters fail to reach an agreement," said Sulaiman.

Sure why not GBP doing events with Zanfer can't hurt the sport.

[QUOTE=Jocknerd94;12974424]If Mares does not want to fight Terrazes he could move up or fight the winner of the vacant IBF belt. Mares has many good options.[/QUOTE] whatever happens he needs Donaire to further his career
