Successful Mijares vs Montiel Exhibition Fight in México

In a stellar exhibition fight billed as "Knockout a la Pandemia," former Mexican world champion Cristian Mijares battled friend and fellow Mexican former world champ Fernando “El Cochulito” Montiel yesterday in Tlalnepantla, México.
It was an entertaining exhibition fight, where both warriors showed their skills and fighting spirit to the delight of fans.
The exhibition between the two Mexican heroes was for the benefit of fellow Mexicans badly affected by covid-19.
Interestingly, Montiel and Mijares have both visited the Philippines, both loving their visit here. 👍
Montiel came to fight Filipino Z Gorres at the Abellana Sports Complex in Cebu in 2007, a close 12-rounder that I attended with my GF at the time Louttah of Ormoc. Fernando Montiel won by split decision.
Cristian Mijares never fought in this blessed Pinoyland. But he traveled to Manila to attend the Drian Francisco vs Roberto Vásquez clash at the Cuneta Astrodome in 2009. I attended that fight as well, a battle the Filipino won by knockout.
Beautiful and inspiring job, nicely done by Montiel and Mijares, fighting for the noble cause of helping the ones in need. May God bless both of you, great warriors! 🙏🏼
