I watched that Darchinyan vs Donaire fight AGAIN a few days ago and it was not even close Donaire had him figured out QUICK and was landing and unaffected by the few blows that Darch got thru… He murdered Vic with one shot and I seriously doubt a rematch would go further than 4 rounds… Whats this about guys who could not compete before getting additional shots? Donaires stock has gone UP and Vic’s down from when he was undefeated…Time for new horizons Donaire is WAY too much for Darch and he would murder Mares but that fights not gonna happen due to the GoldenBoy/Top Rank stalemate.

I like Mares, but i can see him walking onto a similar bomb Montiel got hit with.

This fight wont happen unless Mares signs with Top Skank..

That offer means nothing because Arum will not work with Golden Boy on a huge fight like that. They will work together on little fights that they can put together but nothing major that will generate money.

nonito caught darch coming in and throwing huge leverage for the punch landed by nonito darch beat or came close to beating mares it was real close mare of course was throw groin punches all fight long ive always wanted a darch nonito rematch will never happen now though mares seems to have learnt and grown from that fight i would rather watch rigo fight either of these two first …..

Donaire fought Darchinyan when he was a wrecking machine and destroyed him. Mares fought Darchinyan a few years later and on the way down and barely got the decision.

“Chicago guy”(?) has finally been revived from the deep sleep that Marquez dropped him in (lol) . . . :twisted:

Shaefer got the courage of making that offer because he knows that the fight won’t be made. TR and GB are not partner of promoting a fight. Chicago guy

“a straight up one-fight only” challenge. i Love it. drop everything, put the b.s. on pause, and go heads-up. Mares has stepped out of a time machine or something(?).i hope he’s a preview of the future. Mares, Marquez, Guerrero, are role models for becoming UnAvoidable. i actuallly give the edge to Donaire but am convinced that Mares is perfectly capable of executing the brutal upset. just like Marquez and Guerrero. Donaire needs to drop everything, pause the b.s., and join Mares by signing on the dotted line . . . “Let’s Get It On!”

Yep, Donaire is too accurate and Mares’ defense is too leaky. Mares’ would have to be able to withstand one of today’s most thunderous punches. And I just don’t see Mares’, or anyone else’s, chin standing up to that level of power for very long, certainly not if they’re getting hit cleanly and/or repeatedly — something Mares would have to endure to win.

I doubt if this fight can be made, not because of the boxers, but because of the promoters. Perchance the fight goes through, Abner (low blow) Mares will just be target practice for Nonito , who would be well advised to wear a kevlar cojones protector during the fight. Mares is one dirty fighter.

UJelly?

Hard to call this fight. I’d lean a little towards Donaire, but it’s hard to say… Mares is very good at getting inside and Donaire is only “KO” dangerous when he’s throwing counters at arm’s length.
But it’s a fight that MUST happen. Then the winner of this takes on Rigondeaux, after which there are no more questions about who is the best fighter in the division (note I said “who is the best fighter”, NOT “who has the most impressive resume”)

I hope this fight happens… I see Donaire hurting this kid and permanently damaging him like Tito did to Vargas… Mares style makes him too easy for Donaire to hit… I think Mares will give him a fight but will not be able to take his punches all night… Donaire by late K.O.

Arum has to make the deal here but he probably won’t. GB will take over the sport if Top Rank continues to deny his fighters these kind of fights. He is a smart of business man to understand the long term ramifications of his company if his fighters are never going to get their fights. Looking at Arums stable it isn’t nearly as impressive as it was just a short time ago. He has Mikey Garcia and Jose Benavidez for the future but not much else.

Donaire better stuff a pillow down his pants if he ever gets in the ring with Mares.

@Patrick2

Don’t underestimate Mares’ dirtiness. Did you see how many times he hit Agbeko in the balls in their first fight?

Other than that, he gets ktfo if he ever fights Donaire in a neutral location. That’s why I see Shaefer’s offer only a machismo bluff for his fighter so Mares looks good in his fans’ eyes… other than that, if they ever have the cajones to fight Donaire, Donaire will castrate him!!!

Even tho I think arum well opt out just because he hates goldenboy so much and the thought of mares beating his best at that weight I wish im wrong. mares more than anyone deserves the chance to prove once and for all who is the best. There is old school in that boy just like andre ward.

Mares is a good little fighter, but Donaire is on whole ‘nother level. If this fight is made (let’s hope it gets done), Donaire is going to pick him apart, set him up, and then land one of his classic left hooks (Mares will look like Montiel) — Mares won’t make it past 8. Rigo is a much bigger challenge than Mares.

3 mil seems a little short, they should be getting at least 2.5 mil each.

Posted January 26, 2013 8:45 pm 


T-Bag

they’re afraid of a legit threat!!! Mares is easily the biggest threat to Nonito, close to a 50-50 fight!

nonito better start hitting those weights if arum doesnt except this offer …
