Cristian Mijares Gets Stoppage Win Over Fernando Saucedo

By Miguel Rivera

In what some felt was a controversial decision by referee Florentino Lopez, former world champion Cristian Mijares was able to pick up an eight round stoppage victory over Argentinean Fernando Saucedo, on Saturday night at the Oasis Arena in Cancun, Quintana Roo.

Lopez felt that the South American fighter was taking too much damage, so he decided to stop the fight. a

The ending of the contest provoked an angry complaint from Saucedo and his team, as they considered the outcome was very premature and they also felt that they had a good chance of winning the fight.

Mijares, who wants to get himself in position to win another world title down the line, was being tested in the lightweight contest with Saucedo.

During the eight round, Mijares landed a good hook that made Saucedo go back to the ropes and once he was there, Mijares threw himself in there with everything in search of hurting him. Although he failed to do so, he was able to impress the referee, who evidently jumped in to stop the contest.

Thanks to the controversial move, Mijares improved his record to 59-8-2 and 27 knockouts, while the enraged Saucedo got struck down 61-8-3 and 10 knockouts.
