Dunno yet, I might watch both, I might not watch either. Considering one of my dream fights is Montiel/Mijares, I'm more interested in Kirilov, who's the other titlist at 115. I keep hearing that if Mijares doesn't get Montiel next, they'll line up Kirilov for him (or it could be Montiel getting Kirilov, who knows).
115 is one of my favorite divisions right now. When you got guys like Montiel, Mijares, Kirilov, Darchinyan, Munoz, Arce, Navarro, Banal, and Gorres there, and the X-Factor in my boy Donaire (who'll probably move up eventually), there's almost not a bad fight that can be made at 115. And unlike the more glamorous divisions, these guys are practically compelled to fight one another, because the only big money these guys get comes by fighting each other.
The one rumor that had me excited was a card toward the end of the year that had Montiel/Mijares headlining and Donaire/Arce on the undercard, with the Donaire/Arce winner getting a crack at the true champion at super flyweight/jr. bantamweight. But I also hear that Donaire could defend his flyweight belt against his mando soon, on the undercard of a proposed Mijares/Kirilov fight in the fall. We'll see.
But yeah, good times for some hardcore fight fans on August 2.
