Munguia Punishes O’Sullivan for TKO Win

Jaime Munguia’s middleweight debut was a success, as he defeated Gary O’Sullivan to remain undefeated.

This fight marked Munguia’s first fight at 160 after claiming the WBO super welterweight title in May 2018 and defending it five times.

After tagging O’Sullivan at the end of the first round, Munguia connected on several powerful single shots and speedy combinations in the second round. “Spike” did connect on a few shots of his own late in the round, however.

Both men traded power shots in the third, with O’Sullivan rocking Munguia before the bell. O’Sullivan pressed Munguia to the ropes in the fifth, but the former 154-pound champion handled himself well and fired off a strong combination.

In the sixth, Munguia landed a low blow that caused him to be deducted a point. Munguia then appeared to drop “Spike” in the seventh, but it was ultimately ruled an accidental low blow. He was not deducted another point. O’Sullivan was beginning to tire, and Munguia punished him with his jab and combinations over the next two rounds.

After forcing O’Sullivan on his back foot in the 10th, Mugnuia rocked O’Sullivan and fired off a couple of flurries until his corner threw in the towel.

Following the fight, Munguia said he welcomed fights with all of the middleweight division’s champions, including Canelo Alvarez, Gennadiy Golovkin and Jermall Charlo.
