Photos: Mijares Back Home, Demands Terrazas Rematch

By Miguel Rivera

On Monday afternoon former champion Cristian "Diamante" Mijares arrived at the International Airport in the city of Torreón in high spirits with his wife Rina, his mother Doña Lupita and her brother Roi. Besides being greeted by family and friends, he was also addressed by the local media. This past Saturday night in Mexico City, Mijares fought Victor Terrazas for the vacant WBC super bantamweight title and lost a close split decision. Mijares nearly pulled off the win after dropping Terrazas in the final round and almost finishing him off.

"Well, even though I'm still upset over the defeat - the truth is that I am also very happy with all the outpouring of support that I've received. I've arrived in Torreon with empty hands, I get emotionally charged by the affection of my people and the recognition of those who believed in me and thought that I was a victim [of a robbery]. That is very valuable to me, for all of that I am very grateful and that motivates me and pushes me to go harder for the rematch," Mijares said.

"Today I received the good news that they are working on the matter of a rematch with Terrazas. I will gladly accept it whenever and wherever. Everyone knows that the belt should have come with me but hey, I accept things as they are and of course I'm waiting for the date to start preparing againt to get the championship."
