It's a movement
Jaime Munguia gets one more fight in 2022.
Before the holiday season kicks off, Jaime Munguia (40-0, 32 KOs) will give fans a special treat as he faces Gonzalo Coria (21-5, 8 KOs) in a 10-round middleweight fight from Arena Astros in historic Guadalajara, Mexico on Nov. 19. The contest will be broadcast worldwide on DAZN (TV Azteca in Mexico).
“Everyone has been anxiously waiting for Jaime Munguia’s return to the ring,” Chairman and CEO of Golden Boy Oscar De La Hoya said.
“We are excited for him to put on a show for all his fans live in Mexico and worldwide on DAZN so he can end the year with a bang and start 2023 hungrier than ever.”
Munguia was last seen this past June when he knocked out Jimmy 'Kilrain' Kelly at the Honda Center in Anaheim, California. He sent Kelly to the mat three times before the referee stopped the fight in the fifth round. Coria was last seen in July in Cordoba, Argentina scoring a split-decision win against Emiliano Pucheta.
“We are prepared for this new challenge, and I’m excited to fight for the first time in Guadalajara,” Munguia said in a statement.
“We have never stopped training. Coria is not a simple rival. He will want to come and beat me in my home country. Once we get through this test, I hope to kick start 2023 with a big fight that all my fans are waiting for.”
Coria rides a three-fight winning streak heading into the most important fight of his career.
“I am more than prepared for this fight to go up against a great champion like Jaime Munguia,” Coria said.
“We are preparing with all our energy, and we are coming for a huge victory.”
