Jaime Munguia Vs. Maciej Sulecki Attainable For April 23/twenty fourth — Boxing Information


Oscar De La Hoya of Golden Boy Promotions is ready for affirmation by DAZN for the combat between middleweight contenders Jaime Munguia (36-0, 29 KOs) and Maciej Sulecki (29-2, 11 KOs) for April 23 or twenty fourth in Florida.

It’ll be an attention-grabbing combat if DAZN provides the inexperienced gentle to it, as Munguia, 24, is a former WBO 154-lb champion with plenty of punching energy. We’ll see if DAZN agrees to this combat.

There are higher match-ups on the market for Munguia than Sulecki clearly, however they’d be dangerous for him.

Boxing followers would clearly favor to see Munguia combat Sergiy Derevyanchenko or Chris Eubank Jr, however these could be toss-up fights for Jaime.

Sulecki, 31, is a two-time middleweight world title challenger with plenty of expertise. He’s coming off a 10-round unanimous choice over Sasha Yengoyan final August.

Earlier than that, Sulecki misplaced to WBO middleweight champion Demetrius Andrade by a 12 spherical unanimous choice in June 2019.

“Munguia-Sulęcki seemingly April twenty third or twenty fourth, per sources. Florida rising as a frontrunner, although particulars nonetheless being labored out,” mentioned Chris Mannix @SIChrisMannix.

“Subsequent up is Golden Boy Boxing champ Jaime Munguia1. Ready on DAZN for the ultimate affirmation and it’s on. Can’t look ahead to April to see our star within the making,” mentioned Oscar De La Hoya @OscarDeLaHoya.

Proper now, it’s early to be calling Munguia a star within the making, as he appeared to have gotten a little bit of a present in his combat towards Dennis Hogan in April 2019 in Monterrey, Mexico.

Boxing followers are nonetheless complaining in regards to the outcomes of that combat, with many believing that Hogan bought robbed. If De La Hoya needed to given DAZN a superb combat, he’d carry Hogan again for Munguia to combat in a rematch.

It’s necessary that Munguia present the followers that he’s higher than Hogan due to the controversy over his win towards the Irish fighter is following him round like a skunk.

What makes Munguia look even worse is the convenience with which WBC middleweight champion Jermall Charlo defeated Hogan in December 2019 in stopping him within the seventh spherical.

It’s arduous to take Munguia severely proper now as a “star within the making,” as De La Hoya calls him, with the controversy surrounding his ‘win’ over Hogan following him.

“What a terrific profitable present Saturday evening. Very stunned DAZN had not one govt that evening witnessing a star within the making.

“Wanting ahead to Jaime Munguia, Gilberto ‘Zurdo’ Ramirez [and] Ryan Garcia dates. Let’s go,” mentioned De La Hoya.

Who is aware of why nobody from DAZN didn’t present up for the Vergil Ortiz Jr vs. Maurice Hooker combat final Saturday. It was a superb combat, clearly.

I do know that boxing followers needed to see Vergil combat somebody higher than Hooker, who was not too long ago knocked out by Jose Ramirez and hadn’t fought in two years.

It appeared like one other gimme for Vergil going into the combat, so it was arduous for some followers to get enthusiastic about it.

Folks wish to see Vergil face somebody that basically checks him, particularly after his uneven efficiency towards Hooker. Let’s face it; Ortiz Jr didn’t look that nice towards Hooker, getting marked up badly across the face, and hit an terrible lot.

In distinction, Jose Ramirez had a simple time beating Hooker of their combat in June 2019 in Arlington, Texas.

On the finish of the combat, Ramirez’s face didn’t appear to be he’d fallen off a bike at excessive speeds the way in which that Vergil Ortz’s did. I’m simply saying.

If I had been working for DAZN, I’d wish to see Vergil Ortiz combat certainly one of these guys:

  • Jeron Ennis
  • Keith Thurman
  • Danny Garcia
  • Shawn Porter
  • David Avanesyan
  • Abel Ramos
  • Daniyar Yeleussinov
