Abner Mares is escorted to the ring by his late friend, Ariel Camacho, prior to his December 13 fight against Jose Ramirez in Las Vegas.

In the third episode of the “Getting to Know Abner Mares” Web series, the three-time world champion talks about his varying tastes in music that represent the lives he’s lived both in Mexico and the United States.

Music has helped keep Mares going during a grueling training camp that leads up to arguably the biggest fight of his career, as he takes on Leo Santa Cruz on August 29 at Staples Center in Los Angeles. The fight will be broadcast live on ESPN (10 p.m. ET/7 p.m. PT).
