Terrazas-Mijares WBC Title Fight in Play For April

By Rafael Soto

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.

Mijares is just a name at this point - a pale,mediocre version of what he was when he was in his prime.If you've been watching him over the last 2-3 years,you'll understand what I'm saying,yo.

Huge fan of Mijares though I need to go with Victor here. Mijares has been one of the most pure boxers in recent years, really amazing to see the way he out classed Arce but Terrazas did a real job…

Been a huge fan of Mijares since 2007 when he beat the crap out of Arce. Cant wait for this fight. Terrazas is getting knocked out.
