Abisai Mares, Brother of Abner, Will Debut in Tijuana

By Salvador Rodriguez

At the age of 27-years-old, Guadalajara's Abisai Mares, brother of former three division world champion Abner Mares, will make his pro debut later tonight in Tijuana, where Mexican fan favorites Jackie Nava and David Sánchez take part in a doubleheader on a Zanfer Promotions card. Mares, who debuts as a featherweight, will face Edgardo Daniel Ahumada (1-1).

Abisai only had four amateur fights, winning all four and two of the knockout. He took part in boxing training since the young age of nine, but never made it a lifestyle like Abner, who was a 2004 Olympian and won three divisional titles as a pro.

"It is an honor for me to see my brothers, in this case Abisaí and Adan, follow in my footsteps to go pro. Although I know that Abisai has ​​not had a lot of amateur fights, he is a natural fighter and with the right dedication he could go far," said Abner, part of a family of 11 children.

Abner, who turned pro in 2005 and captured titles at bantamweight, super bantamweight and featherweight - has a pro record of 26-1-1 and 14 knockouts. Adan Mares, who turned professional in 2012, has a record of 12-0 with 3 knockouts.
