Monday Meet and Greet: Tomas Rojas Defends His WBC Super Flyweight Title

Tyler CurtisAnalyst IFebruary 7, 2011

Tomas Rojas defended his WBC super flyweight title for the first time this past weekend against Ring rated No. 2 Nobou Nashiro. Rojas controlled the fight with his superior reach and height advantage and cruised to a unanimous decision over 12 frames.

He is much better than his record indicates and could have a lengthy reign at the top (fight video).

Fight I Want To See

A fight with Hugo Fidel Cazares or a rematch with Cristian Mijares. They would both be all-Mexican showdowns and would provide fireworks. The fight with Mijares would also represent a chance for him to avenge his loss against him. On the flip side Cazares is the only name he hasn’t fought yet in this division and Cazares owns a win over Nashiro as well.


What Is in His Future

I haven’t heard of anything so I have no idea.
