The other bout is a good one as well featuring WBA featherweight champ Jesus Cuellar against former three-division world champion Abner Mares. The bout has an interesting built in storyline as trainer Robert Garcia use to train Cuellar, who suddenly left Garcia’s gym. Garcia now trains Mares, making Garcia a key factor in the fight.
