Mijares is Confident He Can "Knock Nonito Donaire Out"

By Alfredo Jaime Gomez, notifight.com

Former champion Cristian Mijares (45-6-2, 21KOs) looked very strong last Saturday night in Morelia, as he knocked out Eddy Julio in four rounds.

The victory may have secured a huge opportunity in July, against WBO super bantamweight champion Nonito Donaire (28-1, 18KOs).

Mijares, once regarded as a pound-for-pound boxer, suffered several defeats between 2008 and 2009, but now he's put together a seven fight win streak - and won two new titles. 

"I hoped more opposition [in my last fight], but I felt powerful. I will rest for ten days and I will prepare for two and a half months in the city of Mexico for [the fight with] Donaire, a dangerous boxer - however, no one is invincible," Mijares said.

"I'll be ready for twelve rounds, but I feel that with my strength I can knock him out. The fight will be very hard, because the Filipino is left-handed, has a good hook and he's a counter-puncher. [I have my] experience, intelligence and my boxing ability and I will deliver."

mijares is making a boost of himself because he knew very well that donaire is hard to beat let alone knocked out...watching darchinyan making a foolish punching bag out of mijares made me lol...donaire will not only flatten mijares but…

Donaire's left hook is kicking ass and taking names

he won't knock out donaire, if donaire will fight him he will be in the knocked out list of donaire. he is just looking for a fame again.
