Default Abner Mares Vs. Leo Santa Cruz

Lets be honest, Top Rank-GBP I doubt a big fight like Donaire-Mares happens. This is the clear next best thing judging by last night.

I'll take a controversial pic of Leo Santa Cruz by decision.

Too soon. Maybe in 2-3 years.

But what else can Abner do? Yamanaka, Vazquez Jr, Koki Kameda, Arce maybe but those would still be hard to make as of Top Rank-GBP, Yamanaka, Kameda likely won't come from japan. Arce might retire soon. Vazquez is with Top Rank I believe.

It's getting slim. But I agree he should take a little break for now against top guns for a fight or two but there are few who can test him now since he fought Moreno, Darchinyan, Agbeko already.

Maybe now but I do see flaws in his game, Guy leaves a lot of openings and Leo is a sharp kid. Then again so was Moreno.

With development I look at Santa Cruz as a better fighter long term. But let Mares prove me wrong. I am not ashamed to say I thought Darchinyan and Moreno would defeat him already.

LSC not ready dude is just 24 and coming into his own... let him feast on these other top rated cats at 118, maybe even fight Moreno then move up to 122 and fight some of their higher ranked non elite opponents and they we can talk about that..

Right now Mares is on a Mission to become the best of the best, an HOF bound beast mixing it up with the best like Donaire.

And LSC on his way up to, no need to ruin our 2 best Mexicans with each other when they can feast on the best for 2-3 years then fight each other when they destroy everyone else.

I like this forum to much, but I'm always down for an AVY bet.

I see what you mean, Would like to see the fight happen though in a couple years, maybe after Leo fights a couple contenders and in the meantime Mares can take a break.

I'm in for AVI bet on Donaire.

Mares doesn't have the skillset that Nonito has. Not enough defense.
