As Abner Mares looks toward facing Jonathan Oquendo on July 12, he admits that the referee who stopped his contest against Jhonny Gonzalez last August made the right call.
On July 12 Abner Mares will be in the ring for the first time since his wild, first-round KO loss to Jhonny Gonzalez a year ago, and he’ll do so with a new trainer in his corner.
Abner Mares will face Jonathan Oquendo in his first fight under trainer Virgil Hunter on the Showtime PPV undercard of the July 12 Canelo Alvarez-Erislandy Lara main event at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Golden Boy Promotions announced on Monday.
