Maciej Sulecki injured, Jaime Munguia lookig for substitute for April twenty fourth on Dazn ⋆ Boxing Information 24
April 7, 2021
By Dan Ambrose: Former WBO junior middleweight champion Jaime Munguia requires a substitute opponent for his April twenty fourth card on DAZN after scheduled foe Maciej Sulecki suffered an damage. I knew it was too good to be true.
This author predicted Sulecki would endure an damage coaching camp and would want to tug out, and positive sufficient, that’s what’s occurred. That’s nice information for Munguia as a result of Sulecki was a REAL menace to him.
In keeping with Mike Coppinger, D’Mitrius Ballard (20-0-1, 13, a stablemate of Munguia (36-0, 29 KOs) at Golden Boy Promotions, is somebody they’re to step in.
It’s simply as effectively for Munguia that he’s now not preventing the 31-year-old Sulecki as a result of that will have been a dangerous combat, and there’s likelihood he would have misplaced.
The 28-year-old Ballard is extra beatable for Munguia, and he’s coming off a ten spherical draw in opposition to two-time Olympian Yamaguchi Falcao final December. Ballard was very lucky to get a attract that combat, as Falcao regarded like he deserved the win.
Aside from that, Ballard has been a professional for eight years and fought just about nobody. It’s arduous to grasp how Ballard floated via eight years, and the most effective identify on his resume is Falcao, who ought to have overwhelmed him. However then once more, Munguia’s resume is lackluster as effectively, and he’s an eight-year professional.
Jason Quigley can be a chance for Munguia as effectively. Quigley misplaced to Tureano Johnson in 2019 by a ninth-round technical determination. The truth that Quigley misplaced to Tureano, Munguia’s final sufferer, is motive sufficient for him to not be thought of.
Good choices for Munguia:
Chris Eubank Jr
On this case, Golden Boy wants to contemplate pulling an opponent from the 154 or 168-lb weight lessons for Munguia to combat in order that they will discover somebody that can curiosity followers. Who wouldn’t need to watch Tim Tszyu, Erislandy Lara, Jarett Hurd, or Israel Madrimov tackle Munguia.
I doubt Golden Boy would comply with let any of these guys combat Munguia for apparent causes, however it will be enjoyable to observe.
In scanning the middleweight division’s rankings, the 160-lb weight class has actually weakened.
There are actually nearly no names within the division now, and it’s pathetic how weak it’s. Although Munguia is extremely flawed fighter, he’s prone to win a world title at 160 as soon as Jermall Charlo or Gennadiy Golovkin filter.
The damage for Sulecki is dangerous information for DAZN as a result of a mismatch between Munguia and a substitute gained’t curiosity boxing followers. We’re assuming that DAZN will keep on with Munguia as the primary occasion in opposition to whoever Golden Boy can discover for him.
However it will be attention-grabbing if DAZN rejects the combat if the substitute isn’t ok to spark curiosity from the followers. Because it was, Munguia-Sulecki was arguably a borderline-level combat. But it surely’s arduous to say if Ballard is a large enough identify to get DAZN to provide the inexperienced mild to him because the substitute.
One of many criticisms that Munguia has had is he’s been matched in opposition to weak opposition his total eight-year skilled profession.
Though Sulecki had misplaced his largest fights as a professional in opposition to Daniel Jacobs and Demetrius Andrade, he was nonetheless world’s higher than the fellows that Munguia had been feeding off of.
Followers need to see Munguia lastly face somebody, as they’re uninterested in listening to how nice he’s going to be sometime. They need to see him combat somebody good now as a substitute of watching him beat up on 2nd tier opposition.
Munguia has current wins over Gary ‘Spike’ O’Sullivan, Tureano Johnson, Patrick Allotey, and his doubtful determination win over Dennis Hogan. In Munguia’s final combat in opposition to Tureano, he stopped him within the sixth spherical after chopping his lip with an uppercut final October.
