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.

[QUOTE=Carlos Alberto]Phucken guys. Have they ever heard of a cross-bar headhear? Who knows when he'll get another title shot! Raul is 29 years old already and has failed to acquire a title yet. He really was a standout amateur and is a very solid pro; the train is passing him by!!![/QUOTE] ...
