Canelo Vs. Munguia Live On DAZN And Prime Video On May 4th In Las Vegas

Munguia’s fans will be glad this fight is happening, as he’s been targeting a fight against Canelo since he turned professional 11 years ago. The rest of the fans who wanted to see Canelo (60-2-2, 39 KOs) take on the dangerous, David Benavidez or David Morrell Jr., will be disappointed with this news.

Those are the fights that they wanted to see from Canelo, not Munguia (43-0, 34 KOs), who will be a massive underdog with little chance of winning. Munguia is an upgrade from Canelo’s last opponent, Jermell Charlo, but not by much. Munguia will at least try to win, but it will be hopelessly overmatched unless Canelo gets old overnight.

It’s going to be interesting to see how the build-up goes between these two, with the press conferences requiring a translator for Munguia. Canelo speaks broken English, but it’s unclear if he can speak well enough to create buzz for this fight.

Munguia was the guy that Premier Boxing Champions (PBC] wanted for the May 4th date, reportedly believing that it was a more financially viable fight for them on Amazon Prime PPV than Canelo’s original choice, Jermall Charlo.

Munguia is a fight that will make money, but it’s not going to be the blockbusters of Canelo’s first two fights against Gennadiy Golovkin or his fights against Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Miguel Cotto. Munguia will interest enough fans to make PBC happy.

The fight is a sure thing win for Canelo in my opinion.
