Mexican Leo "Terremoto" Santa Cruz won the prestigious WBC Diamond Belt  by defeating  compatriot  Abner Mares via UD in a wonderfully intense lion hearted battle, Saturday night at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California.
 
In the rematch of their thrilling encounter almost three years ago, which Leo won by MD,  this time. the Judges determined that he won unanimously with cards of 115-113, 116-112 and 117-111, against tough, swarming and intense Mares.  Lanky  Leo astutely used his longer reach, ring smarts  and maturing guile to keep Mares at bay for longer spells,  on the outside looking in.
 
"It feels great," said Santa Cruz. "Abner is a great fighter, he left his heart out there, it was a tough fight, but thank God we got the victory. We had to be smarter and it was a good one."
 
Similar to the first time they fought with everything they had...and then some....bringing the best out of each other, resourcefully drawing on power and ferocious work rates, so much so that more than 2000 punches were thrown throughout.
 
"It was a fight of the year as I said before," said Mares. "I hope you like the fight because I fought for you, Los Angeles, win or lose, we did it for the fans. It was a great fight, it is what it is, I do not want to discuss scores. The Judges  decided and that's it.  I'll do it again, let's do it again... Mares-Santa Cruz 3."
