The Tune Up: Santa Cruz & Mares Saturday PBC Doubleheader

In tomorrow night’s second Premier Boxing Champions double-header card, both Leo Santa Cruz and Abner Mares enter the ring at the StubHub Center, in Carson, California. However, they won’t be facing each other as originally anticipated. Instead, they’ll both be facing other lesser known opponents, in what is ostensibly a tune-up fight for both of them, before they square off in  early in 2018.

“It’s a big drama show. I want to thank all my fans, I want to thank all my Kazakhstan fans for supporting me, for coming out. Of course I want a rematch, this was a real fight. Look I still have all the belts, I’m still the champion.”

Gennady Golovkin

“I thought I won the fight. I was superior inside the ring. I won at least 7…8 of the rounds. I was able to counterpunch and even make Gennady Golovkin wobble a couple of times. It’s up to the people if we fight again, I feel frustrated over this draw." Canelo Alvarez
"I trained very hard for four months, I fought for Thailand, and this is what I dedicate this fight to, Thailand. For the first fight I only trained for two months. For this fight I trained for four months. I knew I was going to knock him out." Srisaket Sor Rungvisai
“I’m focused first on my fight, but it is going to be an excellent night of boxing. I’m definitely excited about regaining that belt. I’d like to think that I’m defined not by the belt, but because of all the things I’ve done in my life.” Román "Chocolatito" González
