Fight Prediction: Vic Darchinyan vs. Cristian Mijares

Uatu says...

Mijares has slowly been making his way up pound for pound lists from many writers, including making the "Next 7" in the BoxingWatchers Boxer Power Rankings. ESPN has Mijares at 9 pound for pound, and the Ring has him currently at 7. No doubt, this is one talented guy.

Darchinyan lives up his nickname of the "Raging Bull" quite regularly, as he is an aggressive, if somewhat awkward, power punching bully.

Mijares is on a roll having won ten in a row going back to a draw in 2006, and has not been beaten in 26 fights going back to 2002!

So it all comes down to the not so simple matter of staying away from Darchinyan's power. Uatu believes, if Mijares is indeed as good as his rankings would indicate, that Mijares will win this battle, but it will be chock full of drama as he has some nervous moments. Vic will land the harder punches, but Mijares will land the crisper punches more often and will win more rounds.
Mijares by decision.
