Mijares Feels Southpaw Style Will Bother Santa Cruz

Cristian Mijares is very focused on his last week of training for his upcoming fight against WBC champion Leo Santa Cruz on March 8th in Las Vegas, Nevada, and he's got a vintage message.
 
The so called "Diamante" (49-7-2, 24 KO’s) is sharping and shaping any rough edges with the sole purpose of conquering the world title.
 
“I’m a very experienced fighter who has faced the very best in the world. My experience will prove very useful in this fight. Also, being a southpaw will work in my favor. We've clearly seen that the fights against southpaws complicate his strategy. Santa Cruz is a great champion. He knocked out Victor Terrazas and then defeated a tough rival like Cesar Seda. So I know this won't be an easy fight, but I’ll do my level best to defeat him and conquer the WBC title,” Mijares promised.

Honestly Seda gave Santa Cruz so many problems. Cruz is good, but he will take a loss to a fighter with movement and counterpunching ability

Mijares used to be a name. I actually pretty much forgot about him until this fight got signed.

I would like Mijares to win, but I believe Santa Cruz will be to much for him...

I remember MIJARES entering the ring vs VIC so confident and i could understand because the mexican was so good at that point of his carreer,VIC was too much though and the two losses vs CERMENO in a row after…
