Mares returning on September 15?

By Gabriel F. Cordero

It is reported that WBC super bantamweight champion Abner Mares could be added to the undercard of the September 15 card at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas on the card headlined by Saul “Canelo” Alvarez defending his WBC super welterweight belt against Josesito Lopez. Mares would defend against an opponent to be announced. On Tuesday at the iconic Placita Olvera in Los Angeles Golden Boy will officially announce the September 15 “Knockout Kings” event. Over the weekend it was confirmed that Marcos Maidana will face Jesus Soto Karass in a ten round welterweight scrap. Also Johnny Gonzalez and Daniel Ponce De Leon fight for the WBC featherweight title, so Golden Boy is putting together a strong undercard to compete with the PPV telecast of Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. vs Sergio Martinez.
