Former champion Cristian Mijares (49-7-2, 24KOs) is really motivated to face WBC super bantamweight champion Leo Santa Cruz (26-0-1, 15KOs) in 2014. Mijares is the mandatory challenger to the title.

Mijares started the year with a close split decision loss to Victor Terrazas in April. He then won his next two 2013 outings by knockout. Santa Cruz easily knocked out Terrazas in August to capture the WBC title.

The two of them were due to fight on December 14th, but a deal could not be finalized and Santa Cruz instead defended, and retained, his title against Cesar Seda of Puerto Rico.

"When I get the opportunity to face Leo, I am going to demand a lot from him. I have experience to do it, I have the fortitude and the hunger to become the champion of the world - so I am going to put him to the test. Leo is a great champion, and he has many good qualities. He is very strong but I believe that he has not fought with an opponent who demands a lot from him," Mijares said.

Mijares has the skills to pull it off, I'm still not sold on Santa Cruz.
