"Cancun Boxing" Tomorrow night at 10 p.m. ET on CBS Sports Network

Former world champions Cristian Mijares & Tomas Rojas battled in main event

CANCUN, Mexico (April 19, 2017) - The second installment of the 2017 "Cancun Boxing" series, presented by Pepe Gomez Boxing in association with Neon Sports & Entertainment, will air tomorrow night (Thursday night, April 20) in North America, starting at 10 p.m. ET / 7 p.m. PT, on CBS Sports Network.


The event took place this past April 8th at Grand Oasis Cancun the Hotel Complex, Cancun`s ONLY Ultimate All-Inclusive Entertainment Resort, which hosts all series events.

Three-time world champion Cristian "Diamente" Mijares (55-8-2, 26 KOs) and former super flyweight titlist Tomas "Gusano" Rojas (48-14-1, 32 KOs) squared off in the 10-round main event in a showdown between a pair of veteran Mexican featherweights.

Mijares vs. Rojas was a rematch of their March 12, 2004 fight in Mexico, in which Mijares won a 12-round unanimous decision for the Mexico super flyweight championship. They had a combined pro record of 103-22-3 (58 KOs), along with four world titles in two divisions, upon entering the ring last Saturday evening.

The reigning World Boxing Council (WBC) featherweight champion, Mijares is rated No. 4 and positioned for another world title shot with a victory over Rojas. Mijares is a three-time world super flyweight champion who is 11-5 in world title fights.

The 35-year-old boxer has defeated a Who's Who of lower weight division boxers during his decade-plus professional career, including Reynaldo Lopez, Jorge Arce, Chatchai Sasakul, Francisco Arce, Juan Alberto Rosas, Jonathan Perez, Alexander Valdez, Rafael Marquez, Johnny Soto, Teppei Kikui, Jose Navarro, Alexander Munoz and Katsushige Kawashima.

WBC No. 18-rated Rojas is a former WBC super flyweight champion and the reigning WBC Americas featherweight titlist. Rojas, 36, was the WBC super flyweight world champion from September 20, 2010 to August 19, 2011.

His most notable wins have been against Kohei Kono, Noburo Mashiro, Juan Jose Montes, Everado Morales and Evans Mbamba.

In the eight-round co-feature event, undefeated Mexican bantamweight prospect Aaron "Ghost" Alameda (18-0, 10 KOs) stepped up in class to fight battle-tested Edgar "Power" Jimenez (22-12-2, 16 KOs), of Mexico.

The 24-year-old Alameda was relatively untested, in terms of facing high-quality opposition, while Jimenez is a proven upset specialist having taken a 10-round majority decision over 28-0 Ivan Morales in 2015.

CBS Sports Network is available across the country through local cable, video and telco providers and via satellite on DirecTV Channel 221 and Dish Network Channel 158. For more information, including a full programming schedule and how to get CBS Sports Network, go to www.cbssportsnetwork.com
