Jaime Munguia Stops Tureano Johnson In Six
In an entertaining contest, former WBO world junior middleweight champion Jaimie Munguia (36-0, 29 KOs) outboxed and out-punched veteran Tureano Johnson (21-3-1, 15 KOs) en route to a sixth-round TKO!
The fight began with fireworks from the opening bell. Johnson came out blazing, smothering Munguia and lading with hard left-hands and right-hooks from the southpaw stance. The second round saw Johnson switch-hit from southpaw to orthodox, still applying all kinds of pressure.
However, it was at this point in which you could see Munguia started to adjust. Normally someone who likes to come forward, the 24-year-old from Tijuana, Baja California, Mexico found success fighting and countering on the back foot.
The former champion found a home for countering left hooks, right hands, and right uppercuts to the head and body of Johnson. At the end of round three, the 36-year-old had the look of someone who was starting to tire.
The vet kept plugging away in rounds four and five. Late in the sixth, referee Raul Caiz Jr walked Johnson to his corner due to a nasty cut on his lip that was caused by a Munguia uppercut. On the replay, you could see the blood spurt from his mouth as soon as the punch landed!
At the end of the round, Caiz Jr took one last look at Johnson’s lip and saw the damage was too severe to continue. He decided call a halt to the fight.
Afterward, Munguia said he would like to return to the ring in January 2021, then go for a world title shot at middleweight against any of the current champions!
