Munguia Wants Middleweight Title Shot in 2020
Former WBO super welterweight champion Jaime Munguia is preparing to make his middleweight debut, which comes on January 11 against Gary O’Sullivan at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas.
Munguia has been training at high elevation in Otomi, Mexico, looking to come into the fight with great conditioning. Following fitness routines in the morning, his days are filled with rounds upon rounds of sparring, exercises, jump rope and shadowboxing.
The undefeated Munguia feels a change in weight class will be a great benefit to him and that he can win gold at 160 pounds soon enough.
“We have had a great camp. Physically I feel very good, very strong, very fast, and, from a boxing sense, we have developed a more complete technique, better profiled and with more movements in the ring, but without losing the aggressiveness,” Munguia said. “I think that the change in weight is going to help us a lot, especially not to sacrifice so much in the week before each fight. I will go up to the ring with more force, with more resistance and with more condition.
Our plan is to be able to fight for a middleweight championship in 2020
