What the public wants to see Abner is a clean fight for once. I swear he is one of the dirtiest fighters in the sport today and Nonito would demolish Mares.

watched viloria vs marquez great back and forth fight!!! where is the coverage on that fight!!!!!! congrats viloria!!!! Top Rank is king when it comes to maximizing profits and matchmaking so why fight abner when he is getting paid 1 million dollars to fight arce a natural 112 pounder. so in december we have a 112 against a 140 fighter nice!!! now style wise donaire doesn’t throw jabs so how is he going to hold off abner who has quicker and more educated feet = angles to not get hit? that is why arum is milking it donaire is the favorite because he has more power and quicker fists but he is always looking for the perfect punch… one last thing if anyone watched this fight viloria hit marquez with at least 10 low blows in the groin or hip but no one calls him dirty its boxing…. cant wait for viloria vs chocolatito!!!!

@Chicago Guy Why all the hate on Mares?? last i heard, Bob arum stated Top Rank will not work with GBP…..if anything thats the kind of bs thats killin boxing!!

The Mexican fought incredibly dirty.. but as we know that’s how they roll..
The Mexican Judge and Referee should be thrown out of boxing.. the Fix was in from the beginning.

Mares is hyping himself of having interest of fighting Donaire because he knows that Oskie will not allow to happen.

Posted November 18, 2012 9:33 am 


In the past 2yrs no one has fought better competition then Abner Mares an Andre Ward. These two guys are fighting like we would hope all fighters would, but not everyone has it in them to face the best (Mayweather) an some how be good enough to win. Nonito is the top dog no doubt but Mares has shown enough an gaining so much experience he might be able to catch Nonito on a good night an again come away with the W. You don’t get better facing old guys an guys the real fight fans no have no chance against Nonito, Mares an Ward are fighting the best an getting better because of it.

Posted November 18, 2012 6:17 am 


If the contest between Mares and Nonito (if they fight) is predicated on the amount of low blows, detected or not by the referee, thrown in the fight, Mares wins hands down.

Posted November 17, 2012 10:26 am 


The notion that Mares ‘resume is better than Nonito is laughable. I have not seen Mares broke jaws, sent fighters to the canvas with twitching legs or severe disorientation aith one punch, and these were opponents of the upper boxing echelon (Montiel, Dachinyan, Mathebula, Shederenko, Nishioka). Will Mares give Nonito a good fight – of course he will or he would not be ranked like he is now. Fighting Donaire and beating him are two very different scenarios. There is nobody that will hang with Nonito in his weight division. If you fight him, you have to contend with his speed, his chin, his stamina and his lethal KO power in both hands. I have not seen anything in Mares’ last fights that indicates he can hang with Nonito. If they fight, Nonito will KO him with either hand inside of nine rounds.

Donaire looked dominant at the lower weights but over the past year he’s looked pedestrian. Make him fight Mares and win or lose I’ll say he’s doing solid against top comp. Or better yet make him fight Rigondeaux. Stop cherrypicking.

Posted November 16, 2012 8:04 pm 


he Mad Scientist – Look at the guys that Nishioka’s been in the ring with….from all his experience and considering his long undefeated streak…Why was he so scared to fight Donaire? I mean, the guy was frozen stiff, and the second he thought “I can win this” he was put on his behind, TWICE and his corner had to save him. After the fight he basically said that Donaire’s speed and power was just too much. I’m telling you, Donaire is one of those guys that needs an ELITE opponent to bring out the best in him…ask Montiel and Darchinyan, they were “elite” and Donaire SMOKED them. Yes, lower division, but top notch in those respectable division nonetheless.

Posted November 16, 2012 7:50 pm 

The Mad Scientist

Titopa -I think you’re still stuck on the Nonito of old who use to dominate and destroy guys at 118lbs and 122lbs Donaire has looked confused and lost with no clue what’s so ever on what to when he can get a guy out of there..Im not saying Donaire isn’t dangerous for anybody at 122lbs but in a sense he has been expose as guy who’s been getting by on physical advantages (speed,power,athleticism) more so than actual boxing skill or ring IQ..if you can’t see it I think its time to get off the weed vato-loco, its affecting you beyond just sueding you after a hards day work and your sleeping problems, SERIO..Lol!

Posted November 16, 2012 7:43 pm 


hecdog – But none of those guys have/had the pop Donaire does….Mares is hittable, Darchinyan proved that by dropping him and giving him a helluva fight, and that’s because Darchinyan is a puncher, and we all know who hits harder between Darchinyan and Donaire. Donaire is going to KO him.

@titopa…i meant mares…not arce

Posted November 16, 2012 5:18 pm 


As far as resumes go…Mares wins, HANDS DOWN! He’s been defeating the BEST. No doubt. I can’t and won’t argue that.

Posted November 16, 2012 4:45 pm 


I must agree though…Bob Arum is doing a TERRIBLE job with Donaire, with Shaw, Donaire was getting “THE FIGHTS”.

Posted November 16, 2012 4:44 pm 


The Mad Scientist – I just believe that Donaire is THE best from 122lbs down….I think skill wise, he’s unmatched, that’s it. I’m not down playing Mares’ abilities, I thought he looked good and did what he had to against Moreno, but Moreno is no Donaire in the power punching department, NOTHING Moreno threw could discourage Mares, Donaire is a MUCH more polished fighter who uses his opponents mistakes to land his bombs….Mares, although a VERY good fighter, makes A LOT of mistakes, hence the “sloppiness” of his punches, Donaire WILL capitalize on them.

Posted November 16, 2012 4:42 pm 


te tumbo – What happened to Montiel? Oh yeah, DESTROYED!!! Montiel is FAR, FAR more accomplished than ANYONE (minus Mosley, who was WAY past his best) on Canelo’s resume, I agree that Donaire hasn’t been fighting the VERY best in his last couple fights, yes, Vazquez is a good fighter who gave Arce fits, but Donaire can do better….and I believe he will. It’s simple

Posted November 16, 2012 4:38 pm 


The Mad Scientist – What?? I’m just a realist….it’s simple. I don’t go for Mexican’s JUST because they’re Mexican, I go for the fighter I believe will win…I like Mares, he’s a bit dirty, but I like his approach to boxing, he WANTS the best and he’s been beating the best, I’ve rooted for him every time he’s fought and I picked him against his last 4 opponents. But against Donaire, I’m sorry, I just don’t see him winning, Donaire is just TOO explosive for him, if wild swinging (chin out) Darchinyan can drop him with his “power” shots, then Donaire is going to destroy him with HIS “power” shots.

Posted November 16, 2012 4:35 pm

If The Filipino Flash doesnt fight Arce or Rigo next,….hes pullin a chump move….Mad props to Mares not afraid to call out the best!!

Posted November 16, 2012 4:01 pm 


mookie…yes your right and the reason is the promoters. u think bob gonna let donaire fight mares? i personally love the idea of that fight happening, but it won’t. bob’s greed and ego killing our sport. we the fans, the only thing we can do about this is not buy ppv’s or attend any fight cards until they are forced to co-promote because we the fans won’t accept anything else. but we all know that won’t happen either. peace ya’ll

“. . . seriously overlooking the fact that Donaire is MAKING them look like they’re “no threat”. that is actually a sober and insightful post that Titopa NEVER makes in favor of Mexican fighters like Alvarez who may be doing the exact same thing. instead, it’s the undefeated and busier Alvarez whose “hype” and “overrated” (lol).

Posted November 16, 2012 3:12 pm 

te tumbo

“yeah I know you’re a fan of Marquez now that he reduced Pacquiao’s amazing run from David Diaz to Shane Mosley down to rubble” (LoL). MAD SCI, there are indeed some severe self-loathing issues going on with Titopa. he’s constantly slicing off his nose to spite his face with his typically off-base analyses of Mexican fighters. neither Salido, Alvarez, Marquez, or Mares were “real” enough for him before they proved him wrong, Again. afterwards, he predictably backpedals into the mug of the next up-and-coming Mexican fighter before releasing yet another burst of toxic gas in their face. “Lol” is right.

Posted November 16, 2012 3:08 pm 

The Mad Scientist

Titopa there was a time you believed Marquez could no longer compete with Manny Pacquiao during a time what seemed to be an incredible run for the you’re starting to believe Donaire is worlds ahead in class above anybody else in the 122lbs division by pumping up his wins over lame competition at 122lbs..if you don’t know yet you’ll find out soon enough that Nonito is no longer the untouchable elusive, overwhelmingly fast, strong, powerful fighter he appeared to be at 118lbs and below..I wouldn’t be shocked if the Flash takes an “L” before a fight between he and Mares can be!

Posted November 16, 2012 2:37 pm 

The Mad Scientist

Titopa -te tumbo was right about one works harder than you at trying to sound like a neutral mexican fight fan by not allowing yourself to give mexican fighters the benefit of the doubt until they prove you wrong like Marquez did against Pacquiao and Mares will against Donaire..yeah I know you’re a fan of Marquez now that he reduced Pacquiao’s amazing run from David Diaz to Shane Mosley down to rubble..Lol!

yea sure but there are exceptions like nonitos first loss, and against rafeal concepcion where he was being pressured and couldnt put a dent in eithers chin

Posted November 16, 2012 1:47 pm 

Mookie blaylock

try to give mares some credit nonitards, theres a reason why nonito chose to fight a retired nishoka and a faded arce

Posted November 16, 2012 1:41 pm 


Mookie blaylock – I’m a realist and I’m a huge fan of Donaire, but Donaire has never really been one to “attack”, he’s much more of a counter-puncher who relies on his opponents to make mistakes….he needs to work on ‘attacking’ fighters who are just too scared (Navarez, Mathebula & Nishioka) to fight. But against guys who really try to win, he SMOKES them, he’s explosive and if he can tag you, he’ll knock you out. Which is why I feel he’ll KO Mares, because Mares IS willing to engage and is NOT afraid to “fight”, which will favor the more powerful Donaire. You’ll see, Donaire will STOP Mares inside 8.

Posted November 16, 2012 1:39 pm 


Those of you claiming that Donaire’s opponents posed “no threat” are seriously overlooking the fact that Donaire is MAKING them look like they’re “no threat”….Nishioka had been knocking dudes OUT, he smoked Gonzalez and many others, he was supposed to give Donaire a big challenge, except they forgot to tell Nishioka that…the man was MESMERIZED by Donaire’s speed and power, and the moment he “tried to win” he was DROPPED, twice!!! Donaire is making these foos look silly…what happened to Montiel when he “tried to win”?? Yeah, he was sent to never never land. It’s not his fault his opponents FREEZE when they feel his speed and power. Donaire stops Mares with NO problem.

Posted November 16, 2012 1:36 pm 

Mookie blaylock

nonito so called arsenel is overrated, alot of his fanboys compare him to a smaller roy jones jr, I dont see it, nonito couldnt even overwhelm and ko a old smaller fighter in nearvarez, yes narverez fought to survive but nonito was head hunting throughout the fight, never went to the body to bring narvarez gaurd down and probably outweighed the argentine by at least 15+ pounds

Posted November 16, 2012 1:31 pm 


rca – You sir, knows what’s up! Donaire is LETHAL with BOTH hands.

Posted November 16, 2012 1:30 pm 


Mookie blaylock – Didn’t Donaire retire Nishioka with a right hand? Um Yes. If you think Donaire’s ONLY weapon is his left, then you’re blind. The man is lethal with both hands….he’s better than ANY fighter at 122.

Posted November 16, 2012 1:29 pm 


This is a MUCH, MUCH better fight than Donaire vs Rigo…because unlike Rigo, Mares is ACCOMPLISHED, he’s been beating the TOP guys of his division(s) for years…with that being said, Donaire wins via TKO/KO, he’s just too explosive, he will NOT let Mares get wild on him and he will NOT allow Mares to think he can attack, Donaire is just an overall a MUCH better fighter.

mookie Triniad was always a one trick pony. Oscar proved that moons ago before he fought Hopkins. The Hopkins fight then wasnt a surprise to me. Donaire though has a lot more to his game. Will be a scorcher when they get it on i reckon

nonito only has that left hook, the same way hopkins neutralized trinidads monster left hook, im picking mares to do the same, mares will excute a game plan to beat the filipino fraud donaire

true that tim. I dunno whats happened to Donaire since sending Montiel into orbit. Hes been winning but it hasnt been pretty. Would be a toughie against Mare no ifs or buts. But Donaire for me. But its gotta happen soon

Posted November 16, 2012 12:40 pm 

terror tim

Daly I too think Donaire would win but the fight needs to happen. Agbeko is a good fighter and as good if not better than everyone Donaire has fought. Time for Donaire to start fighting the best. Mares is a good fighter but I agree with those that complain about his dirty tactics. He isn’t even sneaky about it, just blatant. Good boxer but he needs to stop with the low blows.

I have a loada respect for Mare but the filipino Flash does it all the way. Mare struggled big time against that african dude in the bantam weight super 4, but look better in the rematch to be fair. Still aint enough for Donaire

Mares all day!!!

Posted November 16, 2012 8:34 am 


If the fight happens, it will be a good one but it not will go the distance. Mares will fight like Nishioka by trying to avoid Donaire’s lethal left and will be KOed by Nonito’s equally lethal right. Donaire by KO in the ninth !!

In an ideal World Mares fights Donaire & the winner takes on WBA champ Rigo to decide who really is 100% #1 @ 122Lb. I know Gary Hyde & Rigo want it.

Hecdog didn’t you pick against Mares in his last fight..? If so, looks like you have come around, either that or you’re still not to fond of Donaire..IMO, Nonito and Mares is a 50/50 fight for now but if Donaire fails to impress against Arce I see Mares beating him because of the same reasons you mentioned..hopefully the fight can be made so we can no for sure but Uncle Bob is starting that funny talk again so I wont be getting my hopes up..LSC vs Mares is a great fight I wouldn’t mind watching that can be made if Top Prank decides not to co-promote with GBP..

Posted November 16, 2012 3:05 am

Boxtra I agree..those who picked against Mares in his last fight against Moreno want to see him get knocked out..btw, have you checked out the new ring ratings to see who cracked the top 10 P4P list..?? Can you say 2012 FOTY..?? Lol!

Posted November 16, 2012 2:48 am 


Mares relies on illegal tactics, and if I were Donaire, I would make sure to get a referee not afraid to deduct points for the dozens of low blows Mares is sure to throw.
