NSAC Won’t Approve Munguia To Fight GGG
Gennady Golovkin thought he found his replacement for Canelo Alvarez in Jamie Munguia, the Nevada Athletic Commission is not impressed with the selection.
Per a report from Boxing Scene, Nevada’s governing body will not approve the undefeated Munguia as Gennady Golovkin’s opponent on May 5th in Las Vegas.
Golovkin’s promoter, Tom Loffler will be submitting at least one potential opponent to replace Alvarez to the NSAC by Friday. If Munguia is on that list, sources informed BoxingScene.com that he won’t be approved due to the belief Munguia is up to the step up in competition.
While the talented Mexican fighter is undefeated, the NSAC may not think that he’s ready for Golovkin with under a month’s notice to face someone the caliber of Golovkin, and was competing at welterweight less than a year ago.
If it is not Munguia to replace Alvarez, Golovkin could fight Gary “Spike” O’Sullivan at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on May 5th. O’Sullivan was considered the front runner for not only a fight with Golovkin, but also for a September battle with Alvarez.
