According to a report Salvador Rodriguez at BoxingScene.com, former three-division champion Abner Mares appears to be moving away from a heavily-anticipated rematch with WBC featherweight champion Jhonny Gonzalez.

As we first reported, Mares pulled out of his scheduled Feb. 15 rematch with Gonzalez after suffering a rib injury while sparring down in Mexico City.

While it looked like the rematch was going to be pushed back just a month, it now appears that Mares may land on Floyd Mayweather’s pay per view return on May 3 in Las Vegas.
