By Rafaelo Soto, Joel Colon
Arena, Mexico City, Mexico - In a battle for the vacant WBC super bantamweight title, Victor Terrazas (37-2-1, 21KOs) got drilled hard in the twelfth and final round, but held on to win a very close twelve round split decision over countryman and former champion Cristian Mijares (47-7-2, 22KOs). The scores were 114-113 Mijares, 114-113 Terrazas and 115-112 Terrazas.
Former two division world champion Juan Manuel Lopez (33-2, 30KOs) knocked out late replacement Eugenio Lopez (31-25-1, 25KOs) in the second round of a fight held at the super featherweight limit. A left uppercut followed by a right hook put Lopez away in the second.
Mexican middleweight sensation Gilberto Zurdo Ramirez (25-0, 20KOs) made short work of Colombian Juan de Angel Monterrosa (9-3-1, 9KOs) with a knockout in two minutes of the third round.

I just watched Mijares/Terrazas, and I had it 114-113 for Terrazas. Pretty good fight, too bad it had to be on the same night as Canelo/Trout.Comment by BattleAxePurist on 04-21-2013
Terrazas/Mijares was absurdly difficult to score majority of the rounds neither guy did anything to standout so even though Terrazas was hurt a couple times and down it was an OK call I guess but Mijares has a claim to…Post a Comment - View More User Comments (14)
