Erik Morales Promises An Improved Jaime Munguia in Carson

By Rafael Soto

Jaime Munguía is in the final stage of his training camp, and this week will be the key to achieving his maximum performance, conditions and recovery factor, as he gets for what will be the fifth defense of his WBO super welterweight world championship.

Munguía (33-0-0, 26 ko's) will face Ghanaian Patrick Allotey (40-3-0, 30 KO's) on Saturday, September 14, in Carson, California, as part of Mexico's Independence Day Weekend. The bout will be broadcast in Mexican territory by Azteca 7, and globally by the DAZN app.

Munguía will be premiering an upgraded corner, directed by the brand new Hall of Famer and multi-division world champion, Erik "Terrible" Morales, who has declared that Munguía is a natural fighter and his qualities must be exploited, so that he feels comfortable in the ring and develops his potential.

His opponent, Patrick Allotey, is the African super welterweight champion and has won his last six fights since 2016.

“Jaime is an aggressive fighter by nature, many people have criticized his defense, but he is not a defensive fighter. He needs to make an active defense - and his best defense is to attack.. and although we are not going to attack irresponsibly or acceleratedly, we are going to make him find a balance, defend himself with movements, with intelligence, but attack with a greater rhythm and manage the times and distance of the fight,” said Morales in an interview in Tijuana.

It will be the third defense for Munguía this year. In January he beat Takeshi Inoue in Houston, and in April he beat Dennis Hogan in a close and controversial bout in in Monterrey. Both fight were won by decision.

I wonder how frustrated Morales gets while training this idiot Bumguia. He looks so dumb with his mouth wide open like duuuuhhh he is the dumbest looking boxer. I dont think this relationship will last long. Average fighters make great…
