Canelo Alvarez vs. Jaime Munguia: Tale of the Tape

Canelo Alvarez returns to the ring to defend his undisputed super-middleweight title when he takes on the former WBO junior-middleweight champion Jamie Munguia in an all-Mexican battle.

Canelo was last seen when dominating Jermell Charlo over 12 rounds, before scoring a unanimous-decision victory last September. Munguia stopped Britain’s John Ryder, who had previously taken Alvarez the distance, in January and Rambo is undefeated in 43 professional fights.

The all-Mexican clash set for May 4, 2024 at the T-Mobile Arena promises to be a fantastic contest and Canelo is -600 to get the verdict in Nevada. Munguia captured world honors in the light-middleweight division and the Tijuana fighter is +400 to walk away with the belts. 

Alvarez is -138 to win by decision and +200 to win by stoppage, and it would make the first defeat of Munguia’s career should the Guadalajara great get the job done in Las Vegas. 

Canelo will be contesting his 65th professional bout at the T-Mobile Arena and while the 33-year-old is by no means at the end of his career, there are plenty of miles on the clock. 

The Guadalajara was beaten by Dmitrii Bivol is 2022 and although wins against Gennadiy Golovkin, Charlo and Ryder have followed, there has been talk that Canelo could be a fading force and perhaps time is about to catch up with the undisputed champ. 

But for now it’s time to take a look at the tale of the tape.

Canelo Alvarez Profile

Alvarez is the undisputed super-middleweight king and one of the best fighters the sport has ever seen. The Guadalajara fighter has fought 64 times in a glittering career and his own two defeats have come against arguably the best boxer of all-time in Floyd Mayweather Jr and when making the step up to light-heavyweight to take on Bivol.

Canelo had a memorable trilogy of battles against Golovkin and he has dismissed a whole host of top-level challengers.

Billy Joe Saunders, Caleb Plant, Daniel Jacobs, Sergey Kovalev, Callum Smith, Amir Khan and Miguel Cotto have all fallen at the gloves of the Mexican legend, and Alvarez remains one of the biggest draws in the sport.

The Mexican has held multiple world championships in four weight classes and he is the first and only boxer to have ever held all four major super-middleweight belts simultaneously.

Alvarez turned professional at the age of just 15 and he has worked his way to the very top of the sport.

Jamie Munguia profile

Munguia is a former junior-middleweight world champion, but the undefeated Mexican has decided to make the step up to the 168lbs division to progress his career. 

The Tijuana boxer was perhaps behind in his first fight at super-middleweight against Sergiy Derevyanchenko, before he ended the contest with a body shot in the final round.

Rambo stopped Ryder, who has previously taken Canelo the distance last time out, and perhaps there has been some improvement as Munguia has acclimatized to the new weight class. 

The 27-year-old is unbeaten in 42 contests, with 33 of his 42 victories coming by stoppage and he has shown that the power has carried through the division.

A clash against Canelo will mark the toughest test of Munguia’s career, as it does with most fighters, but there is an unexposed and untapped potential element to Tijuana man and he will carry the confidence and belief of an undefeated fighter.
