Jaime Munguia To Fight O'Sullivan In San Antonio, Texas And Move Up To Middleweight
After five defenses of his junior middleweight title, the undefeated Jaime Munguia (34-0, 27 KO's) from Mexico, is now making his move up as a true middleweight on DAZN against Gary "Spike" O'Sullivan (30-3, 21 KO's).
The fight will be held at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas on January 11, 2020. The only other time he has fought in Texas was in Houston, when he won a unanimous decision against Takeshi Inoue in January of 2019. This was a very exciting and entertaining fight which Munguia had his hands full against the very tough Inoue.
This time he goes against a tough and rugged O'Sullivan, a fighter who although is twelve years older than the young Munguia, he packs a big punch.
Having fought and won three times in 2019, including a very controversial decision against Dennis Hogan, Munguia is taking his first step in the middleweight division against O'Sullivan, although Munguia is the favorite.
Junior middleweight world titlist Jaime Munguia, who all along planned to move up in weight in 2020, will do so for his next fight.
Munguia, one of boxing's most crowd-pleasing battlers, will move up to the 160-pound middleweight division to fight Gary "Spike" O'Sullivan, a fellow brawler but prohibitive underdog, in a 12-round main event on Jan. 11 (DAZN) at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Golden Boy Promotions announced Wednesday.
