BoxingScene.com has confirmed that Raul 'The Cobra' Martinez (28-1, 16 KO's) was forced to withdraw from his scheduled shot at IBF super flyweight champion Cristian Mijares (41-6, 18KOs). The fight was set for May 14 in Ciudad Obregon, Sonora, Mexico. Martinez suffered a bad cut on his nose during a recent training session. The handlers for Mijares are looking for a late replacement. Martinez, the IBF's mandatory challenger, will wait for a new date.
