“This moment right now is the single greatest and most glorious moment of my life,” said an elated Jhonny Gonzalez to Showtime’s Jim Gray after he reclaimed the WBC featherweight title with an explosive first round knockout against previously unbeaten three-division champion Abner Mares. “When I came to the United States for this fight no one gave me any credit. All they talked about was Mares fighting Santa Cruz. I didn’t say anything but I knew I was getting disrespected.”

Describing the fight’s sudden end, Gonzalez commented “I knew I had him badly hurt after the first knockdown. I thought I’d better take care of him now because he could recoup and I didn’t want that to happen.”
