Mijares aiming for rematch with Terrazas

Former world champion Cristian Mijares (47-7-2, 22 KOs) returns Saturday night against Carlos Jacobo (20-5-1, 16 KOs) in a non-title featherweight ten-rounder in Comitan, Chiapas, Mexico. Mijares is staying busy as he awaits a rematch with WBC super bantamweight champion Victor “Vikingo” Terrazas, whom he lost a controversial split decision to in April. Mijares and Jacobo both weighed in at 127.2.

“I should have that belt and not Terrazas,” stated Mijares, “but I’m fine now. What matters is today and I’m looking to get back the title so I need to win convincingly.”
