In the co-feature of the Chris Avalos vs Leo Santa Cruz @ the Staples Center, Los Angeles, California, USA. Abner Mares dominated Gutierrez over 10 rounds. The fight was stopped when the ringside doctor stepped in to call the fight. The scores were 100-90, 99-91, 99-91. Gutierrez, suffered a bad gash over his eye that forced the stoppage.
Mares dominated every round landing with fluid speed and accuracy. Within three rounds you could see that Gutierrez was clearly outclassed. However Gutierrez kept pressing the action and moving forward as he was eating punches and punches. Gutierrez has a moment in round nine but not even close to making any waves of turning the fight around.
Mares returned to the ring last December and defeated heavily favored Jesus Cuellar to win the WBA "regular" featherweight title by a split decision. Before that fight he lost to Leo Santa Cruz by a close MD in an action packed fight. This is to set up that rematch next year.
