The Mexican faces Miguel Flores this Sunday, hoping to raise his head

Abner Mares, Olympic boxer in Athens 2004 and multiple times holder of various world champion beltswill have a great challenge in his career this Sunday, when he faces Miguel Flores at the Crypto Arena (formerly Staples Center).

Throughout his career of 35 professional fights, 31 of them won (15 on the fast track), 3 losses (1 of them by KO) and a draw, Abner has had 10 fights that stand out from the rest.

It is his most recent fight, in which he unfortunately lost the WBA and WBC diamond super featherweight titles. Abner unintentionally headbutted Leo and Santa Cruz ultimately won a decision.

The victory was by technical decision, after Gutierrez suffered a cut in his eye and the fight was stopped in the 10th round and he was suspended. Mares won by the recorded score after the fourth round.

Despite being a highly contested fight, Mares ended up falling by way of chloroform, after visiting the canvas a couple of times in the first round and not being able to recover.

These were two resounding wins, without a doubt in these fights we saw one of the best versions of Abner Mares, as he successfully defended the WBC and IBF bantamweight titles.

This was without a doubt the fight that elevated Abner Mares. Few expected the victory, which in the end was a split decision. Mares was down once in the second round and Darchinyan in the seventh.
