Mares returns March 25

Bantamweight Abner Mares (19-0, 12 KOs), rated in the top five by the WBO, WBA and IBF, is closing in on a world title shot in 2010. But before he can challenge for a championship belt, he will have to get through another tough battle, this time against Colombian veteran Felipe Almanza (17-15-4, 8 KOs) in the ten-round main event of the March 25 edition of the hit series “Fight Night Club” at L.A. LIVE’s Club Nokia. Also in action will be junior featherweight prospect Derrick Wilson (5-1-1, 2 KOs) facing undefeated Khabir Suleymanov (9-0, 4 KOs) in the televised co-featured bout, plus undefeated featherweight prospect Ronny Rios (9-0, 4 KOs). An opponent for Rios, as well as a full undercard will be announced at a later date.

    For 18 years,® has delivered daily boxing news to fight fans around the globe. From the beginning, we have always kept Fightnews free to our readers and relied on advertiser support. Anyway, the Miami Herald, The Guardian, and Wikipedia among others have been using the “crowdfunding” revenue model, so we thought we’d test it too.
