Tim Bradley enjoys himself a good brawl. Of course, he was in plenty of them throughout his Hall of Fame boxing career, so as long as he doesn’t have to endure any more punches, he’ll sit back and enjoy it. This past weekend, at the Footprint Center in Phoenix, Arizona, Bradley was excited to check out Jaime Munguia vs. John Ryder.

Before they tapped each other on the chin all night, Bradley had a feeling that it was going to be an explosive showdown. He was right. Ryder (32-7, 18 KOs) had his moments, especially in the middle rounds, but it was Munguia who closed the show, stopping Ryder in the ninth.

Watching the 27-year-old work his violent magic was a thing of beauty according to Bradley. Boxing from the outside and mastering the art of hit and not get hit, is always intriguing. But, Munguia (43-0, 34 KOs) never appears to be interested in any of that. The way he goes about his business in the ring is very analogous to the way former Mexican warriors carried themselves as well.

“He is the epitome of Mexican-style boxing,” Bradley told Pro Boxing TV. “This dude is never in a dull fight, always entertaining. He’s ‘I’ll take some of yours, let me see if you can take some of mine.’ That’s his mindset.”

Carrying the torch for Mexican boxing is something Canelo Alvarez has done for years. He’s captured world titles in four separate weight classes and currently has every major belt in the super middleweight division.

His accolades, without question, will eventually push him into the Hall of Fame when he decides to hang up his gloves for good. But, when it comes to grabbing the attention of fans everywhere, Bradley believes that’s where Munguia has him beat.

“Munguia is everything Canelo wishes he was with the fans.”
