Default Where's the Mijares express?

Come on my fellow Mijares fans, he has a fight coming up against a can, a stay busy fight no less because none of the other titlists want to sign to fight the beast known as Mijares.

To help with Mijares awareness, we need to elevate him to 'Calzaghe status' in regard with a cult of personality and loyal fans that will not blow over. This does in fact help a fighter in gaining recognition among online fans and it tends to spread around well even if some people do not like it, only truly special fighters deserve it.

Since Joe Calzaghe is the original 'supernatural', Cristian Mijares, along with the great Joan Guzman are both 'mini-Supernaturals', these guys are just amazing. What the young Mijares showed against Arce made me a dedicated fan for life, he's phenominal and highly dynamic with just about every intangible you'd want, save for real punching power, but he's beautifully brutal and a warrior.

Anyone aboard the 'hardcore Mijares express'? He's got a fight coming up and he needs the support of a dedicated, eccentric fanbase to assist in gaining online awareness and recognition/appreciation of his skills and ability.

Mijares is in my P4P list, is he in yours?

He's staying busy because none of the others want to mess with him at the moment as he is an assured loss for anyone in the 112-115 weight classes, this includes the great Montiel even, who'd lose a hard fought 8-4 and the classy Martin Castillo, who'd be beaten up and stopped on cuts.

Mijares is simply a mini-supernatural, he's scary to potential opponents, you have to admire that he wishes to stay active to keep himself sharp, I believe he wants the best fights and his overall competition is pretty damn decent, the last tune up being at least gate keeper level.

Taking on Kawashima and Arce in close proximity is really nice, two class opponents. He'll probably get another fight by the end of the year, I hope it's someone in the top 10 so he can brutalise him and cement his lower top 10 P4P status.

I like Mijares(despite being another person who's an Arce fan) but Gorjux is pathetic for an opponent , even if he can't get a top name they can do better than that .

Surely someone like [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] would take the fight .

Boxing fans amaze me(not you gentlemen who have jumped on this soon to be legendary express ).

Boxing fans wouldn't know a mini-Supernatural if it hit them in the face.

Mijares can likely walk on water, grow up boxing fans.

Montiel would do his best, but would lose a competitive fight to a genius, no shame in that. I also feel he'll get beaten up pretty nasty and we don't like excessive violence.

We like elegance through brutality, which is what a supernatural produces.

Simms had the potential to be a 'supernatural', but he was far too old by the time we caught on. However, Cristian Mijares, a warrior of unspeakable talent, is only 26 and let's support him and hope the big fights come his way!

He needs a loyal fanbase like Calzaghe has.

Mijares is getting very highly rated for the fight against Arce, and to me it was more of an exposure of Arce's lack of boxing skills than it was a showcase of Mijares skills.

Mijares does not have alot of power and his speed isnt really defining either, hes just a tall fighter with good technique who fought the smart fight against Arce (who btw kept lunging after Mijares in their fight). I guess i can see Mijares outworking Montiel to win some rounds, but Montiel's body shots could close the show real quick and end it all for Christian.

Kikui was a decent gate keeper, problem is who he's promoted by, I fear we'll have a 'JMM situation'... but let's hope for the best, maybe the internet can help and we can get a massive fanbase started that will echo through many forums and sites.

Go Cristian!

Supernatural being>Montiel.

There, that solves everything, hope we get good odds and hope Montiel is up to the challenge.
