If there ever was a guy who literally has taken no easy way to his three world titles, it is the little guy that could, Mr. Abner Mares. Mares has consistently faced the elite of his division, winning Showtime’s Bantamweight tournament and then capturing two more titles while not really having any long breaks. His last win was a impressive KO victory over veteran and former champion Daniel Ponce De Leon. Now he has to face another former world champion in Jhonny Gonzalez as he looks to defend his title and get another sensational win. We had a chance to get some behind the scenes exclusive footage of Mares shadow boxing after a intense sparring session with Mexican Olympian Oscar Valdez. Mares faces Jhonny Gonzalez this August 24th at The Stub Hub Center in Carson, CA.
