(Jaime Munguia vs. Canelo Alvarez Fight) More About:

At T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on Saturday night, Canelo Alvarez defeated Jaime Munguia by majority decision to retain his unchallenged super middleweight belts.

Although Munguia is strong, he moves a little slowly. After the battle, Alvarez remarked, “I can see every punch.” “Sometimes he got me because I got so confident, but you know like I say, that’s why I have this kind of thing, which is why I’m the greatest.

Beginning in the second or third round, Alvarez maintained control of the fight by effectively countering Jaime Munguia’s pressure with fast and accurate blows. Munguia persisted in his plan to stay in Alvarez’s face, but even with frequent hits, Alvarez seemed unfazed.

As Munguia attacked Alvarez, he left himself vulnerable, and Alvarez continued to chip away. Although Munguia put up a fierce fight, Alvarez eventually kept the action moving at a steady pace and appeared at ease the entire time.

In response to a question about who would come after two-time super middleweight champion David Benavidez, Alvarez remained evasive.

“I’m going to rest, so I’m not sure right now. Alvarez said to himself, “I’m going to enjoy my family.” “But you know, if the money is right, I can fight right now.

Alvarez claimed that given his circumstances, he is free to fight anyone and demand anything he wants. Fans will undoubtedly wish for Benavidez to be that man.

Preview: Canelo Alvarez vs. Jaime Munguia:
Alvarez (60-2-2, 39 KOs) hasn’t fought another Mexican in a boxing ring since defeating Julio Ceasar Chavez Jr. via unanimous decision in May 2017. Despite having held the WBC middleweight title previously, Chavez Jr.’s career took a severe turn after his defeat by Alvarez, as he lost three of his last four fights, featuring a matchup with Anderson Silva, the former UFC champion.

According to Alvarez, he has deliberately avoided playing against Mexicans in order to prevent potentially ruining their careers and leaving the sport with fewer Mexican athletes who are stars and champions.

But he did make an exception for Munguia, believing that a defeat on Saturday would not diminish his already remarkable career or legacy. Furthermore, Munguia’s successes have inspired Alvarez to see their bout as a celebration of Mexico’s rich boxing heritage and to use it as a springboard to give fans an unforgettable display.

Indeed, I’ve stated that I don’t want to battle Mexican fighters,” Álvarez declared at a press conference on Tuesday. However, I’m happy that we were able to bring this fight to Munguía, who is a respectful person and has deserved it. I’m really proud of this because it’s very Mexican-inspired.

Munguia defeated John Ryder in a super middleweight battle held in Phoenix earlier this year, and he comes into this match with a perfect 43-0 record. Before finally winning via TKO in the ninth round, he had four knockdowns. He’ll feel more confident after that victory because Ryder defeated Alvarez last year.

Munguia vs. Canelo prediction
Although Canelo is the clear favorite, Munguia has a chance to surprise on Saturday. Munguia is an all-action combatant who seldom ever retreats. Throughout the fight, he applies constant pressure on his opponents and attacks them closely. Munguia’s fighting distance against Alvarez and the pressure he faces will probably decide the outcome of the bout.

He might succeed if he can close the distance on Alvarez, but Munguia’s explosive offensive style has always made him vulnerable to counterattacks, which is something Alvarez excels at.

Munguia may exert pressure on Alvarez, but in the midst of the rounds, Alvarez will probably figure out how to read Munguia’s forward strikes and dismantle him with counterpunches.

It wouldn’t be shocking to see Alvarez settle into a groove in the middle to end of the bout and nail Munguia with a powerful counterpunch. Even though Munguia has demonstrated a good chin in the past, few are as powerful as Alvarez, thus while Munguia can keep this fight intriguing for as long as it lasts, eventually Alvarez will be able to catch him off guard.
