Al Bernstein Calls Mares-Moreno A “Special Match”

Boxing Channel LogoSHOWTIME's Hall Of Fame Boxing Analyst Al Bernstein calls the November 10 Abner Mares-Anselmo Moreno bout “one of those classic style match-ups that you don't often see.”

The undefeated Mares will defend his super bantamweight title against Moreno, who has not lost a match in 10 years. Bernstein said, “This is really a special match, because both men are at the top of their game and bring to the ring styles that make this fight so intriguing. Mares is a boxer-puncher with an emphasis on the puncher while Moreno is a boxer-puncher with the emphasis on the boxer. But, both throw a lot of punches and both have a huge will to win. I think this will be special.”

Bernstein will be at ringside calling the fights for SHOWTIME along with Mauro Ranallo and Paulie Malignaggi. The broadcast begins at 10 p.m. EST on SHOWTIME.
