Chris Algieri analyzes and predicts fight between Canelo Álvarez and Jaime Munguía: “We will see a knockout” – La Opinion

Chris Algieri, former world champion, analyzed the fight between Saúl ‘Canelo’ Álvarez and Jaime Munguía for the undisputed super middleweight championship and predicted that The man from Guadalajara has a greater chance of knocking out the Tijuana native on May 4 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

In statements to ProBox TV, Algieri explained that Munguía neglects his guard a little when he throws the punches and Canelo Álvarez will take advantage of this to hurt him, so expect an interesting duel where youth and experience will play a fundamental role.

Munguía is one of those guys who throws so much, leaves a lot of holes, and the best version of Canelo counters him and stops him.. And she does it quite easily. Thirty-three is when things start to go downhill for most guys. But he’s also had a long career, and Munguía is approaching his physical prime and it will be interesting how the power will affect Munguía from the beginning, because he will have gaps. There will be stains. Think about Jaime Munguía’s fights, how many times have you seen him exchange left hooks and take hits? If he does that with Canelo, he’ll probably get hurt from the start. I think it’s going to be an interesting fight,” he said.

“I think Canelo is too sharp, too explosive, he chooses his points well and there are enough holes in Munguía’s offense for Canelo to find those shots when he needs them. At this stage of his (Canelo’s) career, his punching output is getting less and less, so it makes this fight kind of interesting. You have the young exuberance of Munguía, who is hungry and basically his entire career was made for this moment, and he has the opportunity for him against an aging Canelo. He’s not the same guy he used to be. And I think it’s going to be fun while the fight lasts, I think we’ll probably see a knockout in this fight, but as long as it lasts, I think it’s going to be a lot of fun. because Jaime Munguía is allergic to being in bad fights,” he added.

According to the predictions of several sports experts, Canelo Álvarez He is the favorite to win due to his experience, but they also agree that Jaime Munguía will give the Guadalajara a tough fight and that he could surprise. According to Fernando Beltrán, promoter of the challenger, the confrontation does not have a rehydration clause, but it does have an immediate revenge clause if the Tijuana native wins.

It should be noted that last Friday the man from Guadalajara officially announced that Munguía would be his next rival after having resumed negotiations with Premier Boxing Champions (PBC). This fight will be the first between Mexicans where the four belts are disputed. The last time the four-division champion fought another Aztec rival was in 2017 when he defeated Julio César Chávez Jr.
