Jaime Munguia will take down Golovkin says Erik Morales
Via Sean Jones: Coach Erik Morales says his fighter Jaime Munguia will not only beat IBF/WBA middleweight champion Gennadiy Golovkin but knock him out when the time comes for the two to go head to head.
Munguia (41-0.33 KOs) has been pushing the fight against Golovkin (42-2-1, 37 KOs) for the past two years without any success, as GGG has shown a desire to throw bones at the opponent. failed, maybe because he was facing absolutely bad opposition for some strange reason.
Munguia is 26 years old and has been playing professionally for 10 years, but the best wins on his résumé have come against the lowly Gabe Rosado and Sadam Ali.
Curiously, Munguia is ranked highly by three of the sanctioning bodies at number 160 despite not having fought anyone qualified since moving to the weight class in 2020. Munguira is currently ranked #1. WBC, #1 WBO and #6 IBF.
Morales predicts KO for Munguia
“I dare say he will beat him by knockout,” Erik Morales said to Izquierdazo about Jaime Munguia taking out Gennadiy Golovkin. “People can say what they want,” said Morales, responding to Golovkin’s former coach, Abel Sanchez, saying Munguia could not stick with GGG.
“We haven’t had a strong opponent in the last two years, but that doesn’t mean we can’t. Jaime is ready. He has the speed, the power, the youth and everything to face whoever he wants,” Morales said.

Those are weak fighters and do not deserve Munguia to be ranked as high as IBF, WBC & WBO.
Golovkin will turn 41 in April, and it is unknown if he will ever rematch with another heavyweight after his recent big game against Canelo Alvarez last September. It was the match that Golovkin had been waiting for for the past four years.
Now that GGG has it, it’s highly questionable whether he’ll bother fighting anyone before retiring unless Canelo throws him a bone for old time’s sake in the fourth battle. .
Munguia, who is of Mexican descent, had the opportunity to compete for the world title with Demetrius Andrade and Janibek Alimkhanuly but opted out of the bouts, leading many boxing fans to assume that he was just being pushed around by promoters. for yourself at Golden Boy Promotions tossing cash- in the same way we see with Ryan Garcia.
Munguia should stay away from GGG
“Stay away from GGG. The only person who can cause trouble for GGG right now is Canelo,” Abel Sanchez told Artist KO Sports when it was announced that Jaime Munguia wanted to fight Gennadiy Golovkin. “It will be difficult to beat Gennadiy Golovkin. I don’t care if he’s 41.
“The one thing you can’t take away from him is that once he hits you, you keep getting beaten. So, without a talent like Canelo, it will be difficult to beat Golovkin.
“I didn’t want to fight because he was a Mexican kid about to be ruined, about to retire,” Sanchez said of the time Golovkin was intent on fighting Munguia for a short time in 2018.
He will be beaten for being ugly. Today, he does not need Golovkin. He doesn’t need that kind of beating,” Sanchez said of Munguia.
Obviously, Munguia will not listen to Sanchez and stay away from Golovkin because the money he will receive for that fight is too good for him to continue pursuing the game.
Furthermore, it was a match Munguia could have won based on his punch volume rather than talent as Golovkin looked extremely aggressive in his loss to Canelo last September. We saw the same thing from Golovkin during his fight with Ryota Murata last April.
Golovkin wasn’t as offensive as he used to be, and although he eventually blocked Murata in the ninth inning, it was not an impressive performance.
