Mares is a favorable style matchup for Donaire. Donaire eats come-forward swarmers and brawlers alive. Vasquez, Mathebula, Narvaez, and Nishioka all came to survive, not fight. Mares would take the fight to Donaire and eat some huge shots coming in. He'd eventually get KO'd in the mid to late rounds.
