Jose Felix Eyes Mikey Garcia, Argenis Mendez in 2014

By Ryan Burton

On November 16th, undefeated super featherweight prospect Jose Felix Jr. (26-0-1) capped off a successful 2013 campaign with a third round knockout of Santos Benavides in Laughlin, NV.  Felix went 4-0 for the year with three knockouts.  He said that he was somewhat surprised that he was able to dispatch of the Nicaraguan veteran so quickly.

"I was very happy to get the win.  I thought that Benavides would last longer and give me more rounds.  I thought he would be a little bit tougher because he was left handed and because of his style but I was able to get him out of there," said Felix.

Even though Felix is only 21 years old, he already is a veteran of 27 professional fights and feels that he ready to step up and fight for a world title.  The Los Mochis, Sinaloa, Mexico native said that he wants to face the best fighters out there and dropped the names of IBF super featherweight champion Argenis Mendez and WBO champion Mikey Garcia.

"I am ranked #4 by the IBF where the champion is Mendez.  I feel ready for a fight like that or a guy like (WBO champion) Mikey Garcia.  I feel like I am ready for the best right now and I would like the chance to prove it.  I know that I am young but I was born with boxing gloves on my hands and I feel ready to fight for a title.  I hope to get the chance soon," Felix told BoxingScene.com.
