Canelo Alvarez vs. Jaime Munguia: Clash for Undisputed Super Middleweight Glory

347

Boxing history will be made on May 4 in Las Vegas when Canelo Alvarez, the undisputed super middleweight champion, takes on Jaime Munguia.

Reports have confirmed that the highly anticipated bout will be available for viewing on Amazon Prime Video PPV and DAZN, opening up access to a global audience of boxing enthusiasts.

The stakes are high for Alvarez, who stands to pocket over $35 million from the event. This fight comes on the heels of his recent departure from Premier Boxing Champions, with whom he had two bouts left on a three-fight deal. 

While Alvarez is slated to face Munguia under a one-fight agreement with PBC, there remains optimism for future collaboration between the parties, as reported by ESPN’s boxing insider Mike Coppinger.

Alvarez’s journey to the undisputed super middleweight title has been nothing short of remarkable. In November 2021, he made history by becoming the first Mexican to claim the undisputed title after defeating Caleb Plant. This victory unified the belts of all four major boxing entities, namely the WBC, WBA, WBO, and IBF.

Canelo Alvarez’s First Mexican Opponent Since Chavez Jr.

Jaime Munguia, his next opponent, has an amazing record of forty-three victories, zero defeats, and thirty-four knockouts. Munguia’s victory over John Ryder recently demonstrated his skill in the ring and set the stage for an exciting bout with Alvarez.

Notably, Munguia will be Canelo Alvarez’s first Mexican opponent since his bout with Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. in 2017, adding an extra layer of intrigue to the matchup.

However, despite the anticipation surrounding the Alvarez-Munguia bout, some fans may express disappointment over the absence of a matchup with WBC interim super middleweight champion David Benavidez. 

Benavidez, known for his formidable skills in the ring, has repeatedly called out Alvarez, expressing frustration over what he perceives as avoidance by the champion.

The impending fight between Alvarez and Munguia has drawn everyone’s attention, seemingly shelving Benavidez’s hopes for a rematch with Alvarez. An incredible evening of action-packed entertainment in Las Vegas is in store as the boxing community excitedly anticipates this historic occasion.
