Former champion Cristian Mijares (46-6-2, 21KOs) is hard at training in Torreon, preparing for his big fight with Rafael Marquez (41-7, 37KOs) on October 27th in Mexico City. The WBC has placed the silver super bantamweight title in the fight.

Mijares has gone unbeaten since September 2009, winning ten in a row and capturing various belts at bantamweight, super flyweight and super bantamweight. He expects to be the veteran and then he wants to move forward to a potential fight with Filipino champion Nonito Donaire.

"Thanks to God that I was given the opportunity that we were looking to get for months. Marquez is a great opponent, a great fighter and very experienced but I'm very motivated, I know it will be a great fight - that's why I've done a lot in my preparation, I'm ready and confident that I will win this Oct. 27, I want to be world champion again and I will do it," Mijares said.

"I am very confident in my preparation and motivation of course. Above all, you must be very smart and not give anything away [in the ring]. Beyond the given strategy for the fight, I think my desire to be a world champion is what will give me the victory."

"I have a lot to gain with this victory but first I have to beat Marquez, and then we'll be looking for Nonito Donaire. I know that I have to do a lot [to win]. Marquez, at 37, he said that if he lost to me he was retiring. I am convinced that I will win."

[QUOTE=-Kev-]If Marquez beats Mijares, Donaire's next opponents will be Arce and Marquez. Dude is on a roll.[/QUOTE] I hope Marquez loses, we need to start getting these over-the-hill fighters out of boxing.

[QUOTE=artfuL_]This is a joke. WBC has the Silver title on the line when Nonito is the Diamond belt-holder and Mares is the WBC World Champion. WBC becoming a bigger joke by the day.[/QUOTE] The Diamond belt is not a regular belt, it's just a trinket, a prize. There's no sanctioning fees at...

This is a joke. WBC has the Silver title on the line when Nonito is the Diamond belt-holder and Mares is the WBC World Champion. WBC becoming a bigger joke by the day.

Donaire will give mijares a bigger beating than the one Darchinyan gave him (whom Donaire gave a beating to as well).
