Mijares (41-6-2, 19KOs) feels ready for a title shot, and wants either WBO super bantamweight champ Jorge Arce or WBC/WBO bantamweight king Nonito Donaire. Mijares dominated Arce at super flyweight in 2007. 

"I feel much better at bantamweight, very strong and fast. This year I want go for the title against any of the world bantamweight champions, like a fight against [Fernando] Montiel, Arce or even Nonito Donaire. I'm going to meet with my representatives and discuss any options," said Mijares
