On Saturday night, Dec. 10, Abner Mares stamped another mark in his legacy by defeating former champion Jesus Cuellar over twelve rounds inside of the USC Galen Center in Los Angeles, Calif. Mares has won belts in three weight classes and again now in the featherweight division he is a champion, as he adds the WBA featherweight crown to his collection.

Mares (30-2-1, 15 KO’s) used his skills and boxing ability in the face of Cuellar (28-2, 21 KO’s) , who appeared to be the bigger and physically stronger fighter inside of the ropes.
