Abner Mares Becomes U.S Citizen

June 25, 2020


Four-time and three-division world champion Abner Mares of Hawaiian Gardens, California by way of Guadalajara, Jalisco Mexico, was sworn in as a U.S. Citizen yesterday in a Naturalization ceremony in Los Angeles. Due to COVID-19, Abner’s naturalization ceremony was moved to a drive-thru swearing-in process, keeping all of the new citizens safe.
"I'm so happy to be a U.S. Citizen, it's a dream come true,” said Mares. “I came here without papers at age seven and have always considered myself a citizen of both the United States and Mexico. Having been here for over 20 years, it's an honor to officially be part of this great country as a citizen. My heart is bursting with pride, and I look forward to registering to vote, and voting this November."
