40-0 middleweight phenom Jaime Munguia returns in a ten-rounder with Gonzalo Coria. This is likely to be a tune-up for the former WBO super welterweight champion as he eyes world middleweight honors in 2023. Munguia is hoping to get a title shot next year against IBF/WBA middleweight champion Gennadiy Golovkin or WBC champ Jermall Charlo, but it remains to be seen whether that’ll happen.
Munguia is coming off two knockout wins and is likely to seal a third against 21-5 Coria. Whenever the Argentine swims in world class waters, he drowns. Coria has a two-round knockout defeat to current WBO middleweight champion Zhanibek Alimkhanuly on his record, as well as a loss to former title challenger Artur Akavov. The smart money is on Munguia to further boost his world championship credentials with a quick stoppage.
There hasn’t been much of a promotion for the Munguia vs. Coria fight, and you wouldn’t know that it’s happening unless you were looking closely. It’s unclear why Golden Boy picked out Coria as the opponent for Munguia because of the recession from the opposition the 26-year-old former WBO junior middleweight champion has been facing since he moved up to 160 three years ago in 2019.
The Argentinian Coria has been in with a handful of well-known fighters and lost each time. That probably explains why he’s been picked out for Munguia to fight because he’s not a threat to beating him.
If Munguia does get a crack at either Golovkin or Charlo, hopefully, he’ll be ready because his opposition hasn’t prepared him for what he’ll be dealing with against either of those champions. If Coria beats Munguia, that would be a massive shock and a real disappointment for Golden Boy Promotions because they’ve not yet been able to put him in with a big name during his career.
