Undefeated WBC Featherweight World Champion Abner Mares will make the first defense of his title in his sixth consecutive championship fight this Saturday on SHOWTIME.

I don't like neither one. Of course, I'd like for the fighter with the G last name to win. But I will say Mares will take him out. Holla!

Mares....because we've already seen Jhonny reach his limitations..
Mares not so much. Rico could but that fight would never happen because of the "promotional Rift".
