Jorge ‘Travieso’ Arce gives his opinion on Canelo Álvarez vs. Jaime Munguía and chooses his favorite – La Opinion

Jorge ‘Travieso’ Arce, former world champion of five weight categories, gave his opinion on the fight and chose Jaime Munguía as your favorite to win from the dispute against Saúl ‘Canelo’ Álvarez for the undisputed super middleweight title on May 4 in Las Vegas.

In the Sparring Session program on ProBox TV in Spanish, Travieso Arce highlighted that hunger, youth and Freddie Roach, Munguía’s coach, could make a difference in combat and give him a chance to beat Canelo Álvarez.

“Without a doubt a super interesting fight. I think it’s going to be a screaming fight, with a reserved prognosis. Canelo against Munguía is an extremely interesting fight because Munguía has the youth, the strength, he has the hunger to win, he is undefeated and he has more than demonstrated in the ring that he is a fighter who is already made, who is trained and has a lot of desire. We saw it in his last fight against Josh Ryder, he tore him to pieces, knocked him down four times and beat a fighter that Canelo couldn’t knock out and who made Canelo Álvarez look bad. So I believe that Munguía has a good chance of beating Canelo or at least giving him a great fight.“, said.

“A highly anticipated fight. So I hope to see an extremely even, close fight, where sparks will fly. Fight between Mexicans is a guarantee of spectacle. (…) Be careful because I think Freddie Roach can make the difference. He is a great trainer with a lot of capacity and the capacity of Nacho Beristáin, who has experience, who knows how to strategize in the ring so that the boxer reaches his best moment and I think he showed it against Jaime Munguía in his last fight with John Ryder . He looked overwhelming, he looked imposing. So Canelo doesn’t have an easy fight at all. It is going to be an extremely interesting fight and be careful because Freddie Roach can make a big difference in Jaime Munguía’s corner,” he added.
