MIJARES, TERRAZAS SET TO BATTLE FOR WBC PAPER TITLE
Ex-115 pound champion Cristian Mijares, has arrived in Mexico City ready and bristling to face Victor Terrazas this Saturday for the paper WBC 122-pound championship. [The WBC title is a bogus one because the WBC stripped Toshiaki Nishioka of the title before he fought Nonito Donaire. Nishioka lost to Donaire who had the IBF and WBO titles and Donaire lost to Guillermo Rigondeaux who had the WBA title, so putting ridiculous strippings aside, Rigondeaux is the true world champion at 122 pounds and Mijares-Terraza, while a worthy fight, is bogus as a so-called championship contest]. Mijares [a Mexican] who will fight Terrazas, [another Mexican, while the WBC is based in Mexico (see a pattern here?], said, “I’m here in Mexico City to win the WBC title, This is my time, my moment and I won’t let anybody take what’s mine. The fight against Terrazas will very hard, but I had a wonderful preparation, so I won’t have problems in defeating him.” Mijares is 47-6-2 and Terrazas is 36-2-1.
