It seems as if the partnership between Abner Mares and Virgil Hunter is no more. Mares announced via his Facebook that he was headed back to Clemente Medina.
“I’m back where I started, with my trainer from before, Clemente Medina, and I came back to my style from before with everything I got,” posted Mares.
The last time Mares fought was against Jonathan Oquendo in a bout where many thought Hunter restricted the style of Mares and made his bout with Oquendo unpleasing to the eye. No word from Mares as to why the switch was made from Hunter to Medina.
