Canelo Alvarez vs. Jaime Munguia titles at stake

Alvarez will look to prove he is still the top dog at super middleweight when he defends his four titles against a fellow Mexican with the fight likely to start just after midnight on Cinco de Mayo.

The 33-year-old holds the WBO, WBC, WBA and IBF titles at super-middleweight, while Munguia holds the WBC Silver title.

Munguia was a previous world champion at light-middleweight and a win in May would catapult him to the top of the rankings at super-middleweight, while it would also boost his pound-for-pound position.

Canelo Alvarez record

Mexican Alvarez has one of the best resumes in boxing, with his professional record standing at 60-2-2.

Alvarez has been the face of the sport for the last five years, but he made his debut way back in 2005.

He has shared a ring with the likes of Shane Mosley, Austin Trout, Mayweather Jr., Erislandy Lara, James Kirkland, Miguel Cotto, Amir Khan, Liam Smith, Julio Cesar Chavez Jr., Golovkin, Daniel Jacobs, Sergey Kovalev, Callum Smith, Dmitry Bivol and Jermell Charlo.

Only Mayweather Jr. and Bivol have beaten him over the years, and not many fighters will ever be able to match his achievements in the sport.

Alvarez drew his fifth fight against Jorge Juarez in Mexico, while the first meeting with Golovkin also ended in a draw.

While he is known as one of the best boxers on the planet for his defensive skill set, he has recorded 39 stoppage victories during his 60 wins.

Jaime Munguia record

Munguia's record is a perfect one, with the Mexican's current resume standing at 43-0.

The 27-year-old has won 34 of his fights inside the distance, meaning his knockout-to-win ratio stands at an incredible 79 percent.

While Munguia's resume is not as decorated as Alvarez's, he too has beaten Liverpool's Liam Smith, while he has also proved too much for Takeshi Inoue, Dennis Hogan, Gary O'Sullivan, Gabriel Rosado, Sergiy Derevyanchenko and John Ryder.
