In his first defense of his WBC featherweight championship, Abner Mares (26-1, 14 KOs), Guadalajara, Mexico, fell to Mexico City’s Jhonny Gonzalez (55-8, 47 KOs) Saturday at the Stub Hub Center in Carson, Calif. Gonzalez, a veteran of over 60 fights, scored a shocking first round knockout over the previously unbeaten Mares.

The round opened with the fighters jabbing away. Later in the round, Gonzalez caught Mares with a solid right. Moments later, Gonzalez tagged him with a flush left hook to the chin that sat Mares down to the canvas. Mares staggered as he got up. Gonzalez continued his assault, connecting with a straight right that knocked down Mares again. Referee Jack Reiss began a ten-count but then stopped the action at 2:05 . . . click here for more
