Cristian Mijares Continues His Run, Decisions Jesus Arevalo

Former multi-division world champion Cristian Mijares is not ready to walk away from the sport just yet, and proved that he still has something left in the tank, as he outboxed Jesus Arevalo over ten rounds to win a decision at the Unidad Deportiva in Campeche, Campeche, Mexico.

The 36-year-old Mijares (58-8-2, 26 knockouts), who resides in Gomez Palacios, Durango, Mexico, won his first world title belt in January of 2007, defeating Rafael Hernandez in a tune-up bout on July 29.

In his previous bout on Apr. 8, Mijares won a close decision over Tomas Rojas. Mijares has now won his last nine bouts - as streak which may earn him another world title shot. This was Mijares’ third consecutive fight at 130 pounds. He is currently ranked number five by the WBC.

Mijares’ best days was when he fought at 115 pounds, winning the WBC junior bantamweight title in January of 2007. Mijares would successfully defend the title six times before losing to Vic Darchinyan in a high stakes WBC, IBF, WBA unification that was televised by Showtime.

Mijares would win another world title belt at 115 pounds in December of 2010, defeating Juan Alberto Rosas by unanimous decision.

His last world title fight came in March 2014, when he lost a twelve round unanimous decision to then WBC super bantamweight world champion Leo Santa Cruz on the undercard of Canelo Alvarez vs. Alfredo Angulo at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. It was the last defeat that Mijares suffered thus far. 

The 28-year-old Arevalo (25-2-1, 15 KOs), who currently resides in Cabo San Lucas, Baja California Sur, Mexico, had won his last four bouts, all against mediocre opposition.

Arevalo’s most noteworthy fight was a unanimous decision victory over Juan Alberto Rosas on July 30 of last year.
