Santa Cruz and Mares Press Conference Highlights – Earlier this week the Premier Boxing Champions were in Los Angeles for a press conference announcing their October 14th doubleheader on FOX. Review your local listings for start times.
The west coast portion of the night sees the PBC at the StubHub Center and sees the featherweight division step into the spotlight with two world title fights. WBA world champion Abner Mares (30-2-1) defends his belt against Andres Gutierrez (35-1-1) while WBA “super” world champion Leo Santa Cruz defends his belt against veteran Chris Avalos. Santa Cruz and Mares have met before, back in August of 2015 and that crowd-pleasing bout saw Santa Cruz edge Mares via a majority decision. A rematch between the two has been called for ever since and with victories on October 14th both Santa Cruz and Mares will be once step closer to their return bout.
