According to reports in Mexico, trainer/manager Nacho Beristain has broken ties with undefeated bantamweight prospect Abner Mares over his recent signing with manager Frank Espinoza, who also handles numerous fighters such as Israel Vazquez.
It appears that Beristain was upset that Mares signed the deal without letting him know and/or speaking to him about it. Nacho spoke to Mares and told him not to return to the Romanza Gym in Iztacalco, Mexico.
"Abner will no longer train in this gym. It has really bothered me that he signed with Frank Espinoza and did not tell me. I like to know who I'm working with and who I'm not. It's not that he closed the door. It was a decision he and his dad thought was appropriate, so I hope they do well by signing with Mr. Espinoza, but we will no longer train him," Beristain told The Record.
