Erik Morales Expects Jaime Munguia To Look Much Better at 160

With great preparation, Jaime Munguía closed out his high elevation camp on Tuesday, with very satisfactory results in these seven weeks that the strong stage of his preparation in the Otomí Ceremonial Center in the cold mountains of the State of Mexico.

Former WBO super welterweight world champion, Munguía (34-0, 27 KO's) will make his formal debut at middleweight on Saturday, January 11, at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas.

He will face Irish boxer Gary "Spike" O'Sullivan (30-3-0, 21 KO's) in an interesting confrontation that will be broadcast on the DAZN digital platform and in Mexico by Azteca 7.

On the last day of 2019, Munguía worked in a double session, with a strenuous morning run, with freezing temperature, and in the afternoon he had a twelve round sparring session, where he looked great - with speed and power, in addition his measurements of resistance, recovery and pressure were optimal.

"Fighting in middleweight will make Jaime look looser in the ring, faster and at the same time stronger, he will be fighting in his natural weight and on January 11 the results of this concentration will be seen in the state of Mexico," stated former four division champion Erik Morales, who is Munguia's coach.

Munguía and his team will move to Tijuana today, where they will close preparation lightly until Sunday, the 5th. On Monday, the 6th, they will travel to the headquarters of the match in San Antonio, Texas, departing from San Diego.

"Munguía is a fighter who is going to mature personally and from a boxing stance. He is 22 years old, and he still has a lot to give and learn, even though he was already a world champion. He has that natural talent, but at the same time he captures very quickly the instructions and advice we give him, and we have great faith that he will achieve his second world championship, now at middleweight," said Morales.

The WBO ranked Munguía at number one in the middleweight division on its December charts, where the undefeated champion is Demetrius Andrade (28-0, 17 KO's).
