On December 10, 2016, Jesus Cuellar will defend his title live on Showtime against former champion Abner Mares in an exciting 126-pound main event bout.

Find out what it will take from each fighter to leave the ring victorious. Then, on Saturday, December 10th, be sure to tune into Showtime at 10pm ET / 7pm PT to see who wins!
A year-long wait before their first together is an unusual stretch for a fighter-trainer tandem, but 3-time world champion Abner Mares and new trainer Robert Garcia look at it as a blessing in disguise. Despite setbacks in the last year, they've remained dilligent in their work, and now hope that their first fight together ends with Mares claiming a fourth world title in his upcoming battle with featherweight champ Jesus Cuellar on Saturday, December 10, 2016, in Los Angeles.
