Ponce tells Jim Gray the fight should not have been stopped— Michael Woods (@Woodsy1069) May 5, 2013
Fight was very close on cards at time of stoppage. 77-74, 76-75, 76-75 Mares. Would've been some finish.
Watching Mares, who has a very good blend of power, speed and accuracy, makes it more disappointing we didn't see Mares-Donaire— Chris Mannix (@ChrisMannixSI) May 5, 2013
Absolutely. Mares showed a lot tonight. Much more than Donaire did against Rigo.
Mares deserves a ton of credit for winning this fight.
But Jay Nady gave a quick hook there. Ponce de Leon was throwing back, had his hands up and was definitely still in the fight.
Either way though it's Mares by 9th round TKO as he captures the WBC featherweight title.
PDL was hurt, but had his hands up and was focused on his opponent.
That HAS to be allowed to continue!! Granted the referee has to make a quick call but that was the definition of an early hook.
PDL deserved a chance to fight he was back.
Wow. Jay Nady steps in and stops the fight in the ninth!!
That's an absolutely atrocious stoppage!
And absolutely out of NOWHERE Mares drops PDL again in the ninth with a HUGE shot. PDL in trouble now and on the verge of being stopped!!!
This fight has drastically changed in favor of PDL. Mares is clearly slowing down, as the affects of the bigger man's punches are starting to show.
Extra weight could be affecting Mares as PDL has landed more as Abner has slowed a bit. Subtle but a change.
Going to eighth, Mares needed a break for low blow and rallied to land some good rights.— Lance Pugmire (@latimespugmire) May 5, 2013
Gave Mares that round but PDL has narrowed the distance and appears to be hurting Mares now with some consistency.
PDL getting much more aggressive. Starting to land his left hand more and Mares has appeared to slow a tad.
PDL lands a low blow, how ironic, and Mares goes down. Jay Nady tells Mares to suck it up because he was holding.
Favored the aggression of Ponce de Leon there in round five. Gave it to him to narrow the fight to 3-2 in rounds for Abner Mares.
With the knockdown though he leads 48-46
PDL winging those huge lefts at Mares all night. He's landed a few and Mares has taken them well thus far. Round up for grabs here in the fifth.
Loving the work Mares is doing here in the first third of the fight. He's quicker, more precise and his punches are landing on target with force.
Got him up 3-1 in rounds 39-36 on the cards.
Will get interesting though if PDL lands something big.
PDL had Mares cornered there and didn't do enough...
PDL again stunned by a huge Mares right hand near the end of the round. The two men trade huge shots along the ropes to punctuate the third round.
Tough to score but I favored Mares who now leads 2-1 in rounds 29-27.
