Canelo And Munguia Come Face To Face At Kick-Off Presser

Canelo Alvarez and Jaime Munguia held their kick-off presser ahead of their super middleweight clash on May 4. 

Alvarez defends his Undisputed Super Middleweight Title against the undefeated Mexican. Canelo has not fought since beating Jermell Charlo last year. The performance did not show much about Canelo’s form since he was fighting a 154-pounder who was moving up two weight classes. However, following the win, Canelo claimed no one could ‘beat’ this version of him. Alvarez has been criticized for not fighting David Benavidez, but he cannot afford to overlook Munguia, a KO artist. 

Munguia’s record is 43-0, including 34 knockouts. He heads into the fight with one of his best performances. The Mexican stopped John Ryder in the ninth round, dropping him four times in the fight. Canelo failed to stop Ryder, making Munguia’s win more impressive, as Ryder would later retire. Munguia knows he is one win away from becoming a PPV star. Here were the key highlights from the presser.
