Abner Mares was driven to challenge the best fighters in the sport of boxing and once he was surprisingly knocked out in the first round against Jhonny Gonzalez, Golden Boy Promotions faeared they had made a mistake moving Mares up so fast. Mares the true warrior he is, accepted a rematch to fight Gonzales, but due to an injury was forced to step out the bout. now it seems like he and his team will look for another fight instead of Gonzales, which would please they powers that be at GBP.
Word around the campfire was that Richard Schaefer was worrying about that rematch so much that he was trying to get Gonzales to take another fight for the same amount of money and even offered the same to Mares, to fight another opponent. The issue is, due to the cold war between Top Rank boxing and GBP, we may never get to see Mares fight the type of fights we find appealing.
