Both looked very impressive at the Pavlik-Taylor undercard...especially Montiel. Both guys are without a doubt the best fighters in their division.

Who would win?

This is probably the best fight that can be made at 118lb and below. Mijares may give Montiel alot of trouble because of his reach but Monty was able to hang and IMO beat a taller/bigger fighter in Gonzales. Mijares is a bad dude but I think Montiel can do eveything just a little better.

Montiel by decision in a very entertaining fight.

it's nice to see Montiel finally realizing he can be the boxer/puncher a lot of people thought he could be. Mijares is making a claim to being the best at 115. Natural matchup IMO.

Montiel has a fight schedulled for april 26 in Mexico and Arum said before the Castillo fight that he might remacth Z Gorres.....I hope Mijares-Montiel happens by the end of the year.

Off topic, but I don't think Montiel has 76 ko's

Too bad the REALLY little guys don't get the exposure they deserve. The good thing about it though-the real tiny guys are willing to face each other moreso than the higher weights.

Why the hell would he have Montiel take on Gorres again? That is bad matchmaking. The first fight between the 2 was pretty damn close.

If he wants to rematch Gorrez thats fine I think Montiel will stop him the 2nd time around.
