Jaime Munguia Wins Third Fight At Middleweight


In his latest outing, former WBO junior middleweight champion Jamie Munguia (37-0, 30 KO’s) kept his unblemished record intact. He accomplished this by claiming a sixth round stoppage of Kamil Szeremeta (21-2, 5 KO’s). The win also extends his current knockout streak to five consecutive stoppages.

Before the bout, Munguia already held extremely favorable standing in the middleweight rankings. At the moment the Mexican bruiser is #1 by the WBO and the WBC, #4 by the IBF and #5 by the WBA. With his rankings he should be able to press for title fights with either WBO champion Demetrius Andrade or WBC champion Jermall Charlo. Only time will tell if Munguia chooses to chase either one of those options. If he did they would make, by far, the stiffest competition of his career.

TOTAL DOMINATION

The first round was a standard feel out process were nothing overly captivating happened. Szeremeta established his educated jab while Munguia attempted to find his range. In the second round, however, Munguia began assuming control and found a cozy home for his thumping left hook to the body. Over the next two periods the Mexican fighter really started letting his hands go landing regular combinations.

When throwing his shots there was a heavy concentration on the body. Along with the depleting body assault Munguia began landing a series of head twisting uppercuts with both hands. Szeremeta was making things remarkably easier by largely standing directly in front of Munguia behind a high guard. Here and there the Polish fighter was landing his own offense but was not coming close to keeping up with Munguia’s numbers. By the fifth Szeremeta was visibly breathing very deeply.

Following another abusive round in the sixth period Szeremeta quit on his stool before coming out for the seventh round.

Earlier on the undercard, veteran Gabriel Rosado won a stunning knockout upset over undefeated rising contender Bektemir Melikuziev. This seems to be the man Munguia wants next as he expressed this in the post fight interview. Probably not ideal given his rankings in the four major sanctioning bodies at middleweight but an intriguing fight nonetheless.
