Yuriorkis Gamboa, Cristian Mijares Double on 11/15

By Miguel Rivera

Mexican promoter Pepe Gomez of Cancun Boxing is putting together a doubleheader featuring two former world champions in actions.

Former world champion Cristian Mijares (50-8-2, 25KOs) will return to the ring on the 15th of November at the Plaza de Toros in Cancun, Quintana Roo, where he will face contender Nicaraguan Lester Medrano, the current national champion of his country, and ranked at number eleven in the classifications of the WBC. The battle between Mijares and Medrano was agreed upon to take place at the featherweight limit over ten rounds.  Medrano has a professional record of 14 wins, 2 losses and 1 draw, nine of his fights ended before the limit.

Also on the card, in his first fight since getting knocked out by WBO lightweight champion Terence Crawford in June, former champion Yuriorkis Gamboa (23-1, 16KOs) will look to get back on the winning track. The Olympic gold medal winner will face Joel Montes de Oca (18-3, 10KOs) in a ten round lightweight bout.

Why is Boa fighting at lightweight???? Smfh he's too damn small for the weight. He needs to get his ass down to 126 or 130 atleast man.
