Segura gets revenge, Mijares loses again

Segura_cancila_20_medium Giovanni Segura got his revenge on Cesar Canchila with a fourth round TKO in Baja California yesterday, taking the interim WBA junior flyweight title in the process. The title, if you're wondering, has been "interim" since the two last fought for it in July '08. Jake Donovan has a full and extensive write-up here. Segura is now 20-1-1 (16), while Canchila falls to 27-2 (21).

In Torreon, Cristian Mijares moved up to bantamweight for the first time and lost a shocker of an upset to Nehomar Cermeno via split decision. Mijares (36-5-2, 15 KO) took one card 117-111, but Cermeno won the other two by scores of 116-112 and 115-113. 29-year old Cermeno (17-0, 10 KO) was born in Venezuela and lives in Panama, so that means the decision went against Mijares in Mexico against a foreigner.

With his second straight loss, the shine is fully off of Mijares, who was in some pound-for-pound top tens prior to his destructive loss to Vic Darchinyan in September. Prior to these two losses, Mijares had been unbeaten since 2002. It puts his career at a bit of a crossroads to say the least.
