Abner Mares, Leo Santa Cruz and J’Leon Love Win On Mayweather/Guerrero Undercard
Abner Mares dethroned defending WBC Featherweight World Champion Daniel Ponce De Leon to win a world title in a third division. Mares (26-0-1, 14 KO’s) knocked down Ponce De Leon (44-5, 35 KO’s) twice en route to a ninth round (2:20) technical knockout victory.
Undefeated Leo Santa Cruz (24-0-1, 14 KO’s) put on a dominating performance in his first fight at 122-pounds, knocking down Alexander Munoz (36-5, 28 KO’s) three times en route to a fifth-round technical knockout win (1:05). The former IBF Bantamweight World Champion picked apart Munoz, a former world title challenger, in a scheduled 10-round bout that was never in doubt.
In the opening bout of the SHOWTIME PPV telecast, J’Leon Love (16-0, 8 KO’s) overcame the bout’s lone knockdown to score a 10-round split decision over the game Gabriel Rosado (21-7, 13 KO’s) by the scores of 97-92, 95-94 and 94-95.
