WBC champion Jermall Charlo and Jaime Munguia have reached an agreement to face each other in principle, provided that all promoters are on board.
The potential fight would see Charlo returning to the ring after a two-year layoff. His last fight was a win over Juan Macias Montiel via a unanimous decision.
Thereafter, Charlo’s title defense against Maciej Sulecki collapsed due to the former’s back injury. While the WBC refrained from stripping him, any chances of a fight with Munguia would depend on them.
The current interim WBC 160-lb champion, Carlos Adames, would have to step aside. Not only that, but the WBC could face criticism if they agreed to such a thing, given Charlo’s inactivity.
But if that were bypassed, then Munguia would present a challenge. He is unbeaten in his 41 bouts, with 33 knockouts, even if Charlo has a similar record (32-0 22 KOs).
With that being said, Charlo urged Oscar De La Hoya to get on board, as Munguia made his feelings known too.
