According to a report from Salvador Rodriguez of ESPN MX, it is reported that Canelo Alvarez might deal with Jaime Munguia in May and David Benavidez in September for his next 2 battles on Showtime PPV. Munguia has actually been looking for a bout with Canelo for a very long time, although his bad level of competitors and dull efficiencies have actually avoided it. Many argue that Munguia is not on the exact same skill level as Canelo and need to show himself against somebody like David Morrell Jr. before dealing with the boxing super star. Despite fans wishing for a more difficult challenger for Canelo in May, Munguia appears to be the most likely option due to his appeal amongst hardcore boxing fans. Canelo has actually currently satisfied his very first fight of the Showtime agreement against Jermell Charlo and still has 2 more battles to finish the arrangement. Showtime requires to satisfy these staying bouts before their agreement with Canelo concludes in 2023. Other choices for Canelo’s next fight consist of David Morrell, Dmitry Bivol, Artur Beterbiev, and Janibek Alimkhanuly. Munguia has a fight arranged in January against John Ryder, which he needs to win to protect the extremely expected match against Canelo. Some think that Canelo’s choice to think about Munguia exposes a sense of desperation, as Munguia has actually never ever dealt with top-tier challengers throughout his profession. If Munguia loses to Ryder, it stays unpredictable who Canelo will deal with next. In their current fight, Munguia had a hard time against Sergiy Derevyanchenko, causing doubts about his capability to beat Ryder without support from the judges. To streamline matters, it may be best for Golden Boy to continue straight to a Canelo fight with Munguia if possible. The 2 staying battles in the arrangement are anticipated to happen in May and September of next year and will be dispersed on Showtime PPV.
