This might seem like a strange request but I know the boxer that is fighting Abner Mares on the upcoming undercard of the Hopkins/Pavlik card. I'm here in Colombia training with him and he told him he's never seen him fight, they just called him for it about a week ago. I was wondering what you guys think of Mares. Strengths and more importantly faults.

I remember seeing him fight for the first time on the Soto/Guzman undercard and was very impressed. I'm a little worried for my friend, even moreso because he has no idea what kind of fighter Mares is. So any help would be appreciated.
