Middleweight Action Out in Anaheim – Rising Contender Jaime Munguia Set to Face Surging Gabriel Rosado

The Mexico vs. Puerto Rico rivalry will never get old, and is undoubtedly a 🎁gift that keeps on giving to the sport. No matter the results, boxing always wins. Young former Super-Welterweight world titlist 🇲🇽Jaime Munguia (37-0-0, 30KO👊) has been taking the time to soak up the tutelage administered by his Trainer, and former legendary boxer 👑🇲🇽Erik Morales, and improvements have been visible in his technique, as he was one who won the majority of his bouts with size, physicality, and punching power going back 3 years ago.

The 25 year old now harbors in the Middleweight division as a rising contender, one that is ranked #1 contender by the WBO (mandatory), and the WBC, while being ranked #4 by the WBA. Getting suitable competition for him is the name of the game right now, and on Saturday, he will face a stubborn foe.

Born a Philadelphia native, the blood of Puerto Rico strongly courses through 🇺🇸Gabriel Rosado’s (26-13-1, 15KO👊) veins, and is the very definition of a true throwback fighter – in fact, one of the last ones left when you scan through boxings ranks.

With the new age of thinking, one may look at his record, and wonder “how is he considered a threat with 13 losses❓ Well Rosado is one of those types who took on any, and all challengers that he came across, whether it was him taking opportunities on very short notice with truncated training camps, and giving the A-side all of the perks and amenities in order to make those fights materialize for him as a “by-all-means” method.

Along the way under those conditions, he was shorted a few times on the scorecards, and took his lumps when facing largely the best of the best Middleweights that were out there, with the disposition of never letting the losses define him, instead taking those lessons without shame, to continuously make him a better fighter.

It has been paying off for the 35 year old loquacious boxer, who is on a current run where Gabe could make an serious argument of defeating 🇺🇸Luis Arias, having 🇵🇱Maciej Sulecki out on his feet at one point…one who could make a decent case that he should’ve gotten the nod on the cards over 🇺🇸Daniel Jacobs, and delivering a devastating knockout over 2016 Olympic Silver-Medalist 🥈🇺🇿Bektimir Melikuziev in his most recent outing, to give him his first defeat as a professional.

This is exactly the type of test that Jaime Munguia needs at this point in his career, one that will be a true litmus test. Can he clear someone of Rosado’s current standing? and if so, how impressive can he do so in his performance? Can Gabriel Rosado continue his impressive streak of performances that he has authored up as of late? Those at the 🏟️Honda Center in Anaheim, California will get to see up close and personal. As for everyone else, this contest will be broadcast by 💻DAZN for a Saturday, November 13th date. Tune in.
