Gonzalez shocks Mares, Santa Cruz cruises

It may only be August, but boxing's Upset of the Year may be in the books. Johnny Gonzalez stunned the boxing world Saturday night by demolishing undefeated world champion Abner Mares with a 1st round KO victory. The fight didn't last long, and started off slow with both fighter's feeling each other out. Gonzalez landed a crushing left hook that sent Mares to the canvas, and finished him off a few seconds later forcing the referee to stop the fight. 


To open the card, Leo Santa Cruz didn't suffer the same fate as his undefeated record remained in place by defeating Victor Terrazas with a third round TKO victory.
