Mijares Surprises Many at 30-Day Weighin For Santa Cruz

by Miguel Rivera

A few days ago, former champion Cristian Mijares took to the scale for his 30-day weigh-in for the upcoming fight with WBC super bantamweight champion Leo Santa Cruz on March 8th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Mijares is telling everyone that he's training for the fight of his life, and now many are starting to believe him. He weighed in at 127-pounds, which shocked everyone by the scale. With a month to go, Mijares weighed five pounds over the 122-pound limit and way below the 30-day maximum as allowed by the WBC.
