Cristian Mijares Says There is A lot More Left in The Tank

By Miguel Rivera

Former champion Cristian Mijares (47-6-2, 22KOs), 31-years-old, has been around the sport since 1997. With an eleven fight win streak, that began in 2009, Mijares is ready to continue his success on April 20th at the Arena Ciudad de Mexico in Mexico City. He faces Victor Terrazas (36-2-1, 21KOs) for the vacant WBC super bantamweight title. Mijares, the listed underdog, was impressive when he stopped veteran Rafael Marquez in nine rounds last October.

"I'm not finished. I showed that in the fight against Marquez, in which I displayed that I can hit strong enough to knock out a tough fighter and one where many gave me no chance of victory. Many are saying that Terrazas could be my last chance to dispute for something important. Today I am a fighter who comes with the maturity of having ascended to the heavens, and from there I came crashing ... and fell even lower [before I raised myself back up," Mijares said.
