The wheels are now in motion. According to Victor "El Vikingo" Terrazas (36-2-1, 21KOs), an all-Mexican clash with former multi-division champion Cristian Mijares (47-6-2, 22KOs), for the vacant WBC super bantamweight title, will probably take place in the third week of April [4/20]. Mijares is unbeaten since 2009 and won his last eleven fights. Abner Mares vacated the title on Wednesday and plans to pursue a belt in the featherweight division. Terrazas is the mandatory challenger to the WBC crown.
"Until now no one has officially informed me that Mares has changed divisions. My team and I found out by comments on social networks, but there is no problem. If Abner is not ready, then I would suggest Cristian Mijares or any of the super bantamweights that want to challenge for the title - I'm more than ready," Terrazas said.
