Canelo vs. Munguia: Fight Night Breakdown

Action is still expected in Saturday’s all-Mexican bout despite the pre-fight turmoil. The hard-hitting Jaime Munguia will challenge super middleweight king Canelo Alvarez to defend his undisputed titles (televised on PBC/Prime Video PPV, 8 p.m. ET, and on DAZN PPV).

The Context

Alvarez believes that Munguia’s established career makes this fight a celebration of Mexican boxing rather than a career gamble, despite the fact that he has avoided facing other countrymen in the past. Unbeaten and renowned for thrilling bouts, Munguia aspires to create history.

Pre-Fight Jokes

The rivalry between Alvarez and his former promoter, Oscar De La Hoya, who is also co-promoting Munguia, has taken center stage. The fighters themselves were overshadowed by De La Hoya’s outburst during the press conference, which revealed a rare and insane side of Alvarez.

The Story of the Tape

  • Alvarez: With a 500-point advantage. His advantages are experience, talent, and devastating counterpunching. However, his usual domination in battles has diminished recently. A victory restores his pound-for-pound ranking.
  • Munguia: The unfavored team (+300). possesses not been tested at the highest level, but possesses heart, a powerful blow, and a recent history of thrilling finishes. Freddie Roach, his trainer, adds even more mystery.

Essentials for Winning

Alvarez: Pace management is essential. He must precisely counter Munguia’s assault by dismantling him piecemeal.
Munguia: Everything or nothing. He needs to use his size advantage to force Canelo inside by overwhelming Alvarez with volume and taking a chance on a blow.

Highlight of the Undercard

Mario Barrios will take against Fabian Maidana in an attempt to retain his WBC interim welterweight belt.  After defeating Ugas with great ease, Barrios now takes on Maidana, a less seasoned fighter who will probably require a knockout to cause an upset.

Professional Forecast

Munguia will put up a fierce fight, but Alvarez is too strong. Anticipate Alvarez to use crisp counters to gradually break down Munguia, which might result in a late-round finish.  The more important query is whether the drama leading up to the fight eventually eclipsed the actual combat.
