Abner Mares of Hawaiian Gardens stopped Mexico’s Jose Ramirez after five rounds of their scheduled 10-round featherweight bout Saturday night at MGM Grand in Las Vegas. The bout was contested underneath Amir Khan-Devon Alexander.
Mares decked Ramirez (25-5) in the first, third and fifth rounds. Mares (28-1-1, 15 KOs) is now 2-0 since losing his featherweight title to Jhonny Gonzalez, who knocked out Mares in the first round in August 2013 at StubHub Center in Carson.
