Photos: Jaime Munguia Faces Off Against Dennis Hogan At Final Media Event Before Defense Of His WBO
Mexico's WBO Junior Middleweight Champion Jaime Munguia (32-0, 26 KO's) faced off with Dennis "The Hurricane" Hogan (28-1-1, 7 KO's) from Ireland at the final media event at the Arena Monterrey in Monterrey, Mexico today.
Munguia will be defending his title for the fourth time since capturing his championship belt by knocking out Sadam Ali (27-2, 14 KO's) at the Madison Square Garden in 2018.
The mauling Munguia's last title defense was against the warrior Takeshi Inoue (13-1-1, 7 KO's) from Tokyo Japan at the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas in an all out war.
He is now returning back to Mexico to fight for the third time after his first appearance in the United States in 2017. He became Mexico's world champion after only five years as a professional.
Munguia will no doubt be welcomed by his home fans in Mexico and the fight will be streamed live on DAZN on Saturday, April 13, 2019 at the Arena Monterrey in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico.
At the press conference Munguia said "I feel very happy and proud to be here. We have been advancing, little by little and we had four very tough world title fights. We've been learning a lot, and we've been gaining a lot of experience during the past year. I also want to say that I will leave everything in the ring this Saturday. I want you all to see a different Jaime Munguia, a better version with better abilities. I want to tell Dennis Hogan that this world title will stay in Mexico. He is not a better fighter than me. This fight is dedicated to all of Mexico!"
