Former champions Abner Mares, Fernando Montiel to meet on CBS

Former champions Abner Mares, Fernando Montiel to meet on CBS

Southland fighter and former three-division world champion Abner Mares will return to the ring March 12 in the co-main event with the Keith Thurman-Shawn Porter welterweight title fight on CBS.

Mares (29-2-1, 15 knockouts) will meet Mexico’s Fernando Montiel (54-5-2, 39 KOs), a 36-year-old former three-division world champion, in a featherweight bout.

“They’re both coming off difficult losses, but it’s a fun fight -- a crossroads fight,” said Lou DiBella, who’s promoting the Premier Boxing Champions card at the Mohegan Sun casino in Connecticut. “The winner’s back on track, the loser has to rethink things.”
