Jaime Munigia looks to continue run of impressive performances.


WBO super welterweight champion Jaime Munguia (31-0, 26KOs) will make the third defense of his title against Takeshi Inoue (13-0-1, 7KOs) January 26. This fight will take place at the Toyota Center in Houston, TX. This will also mark the champion’s debut on the DAZN streaming application!

This essentially is a stay busy fight for the Tijuana native. He’ll enjoy every physical advantage and will be fighting in a crowd-friendly environment in Texas.

As for Inoue, this is an opportunity at a major world title on a major US platform. Inoue who hails from Tokyo, Japan will be looking to put on a marquee performance and get the upset.

The Tijuana native is seemingly on a path to stardom! His promoter, Golden Boy, has been strategic in guiding his career. They were able to maneuver Munguia into a title fight with Sadam Ali (who had several lucrative options on the table) and his career has sky-rocketed since.

Munguia seems to be the goods, and is poised to put on a showcase performance. Takeshi, on the other hand, is on a thirteen-fight winning streak after starting his career with a draw. The Japanese fighter has fought exclusively in his home country, primarily against domestic level opposition.

Setting Expectations

As for what to expect, this fight should be a one-sided affair with Munguia stopping a game but over-matched opponent. The Japanese contender will be forced to fight a near perfect fight; utilizing his jab and counters against the champion. Furthermore, he will have to be extremely defensively sound.

Munguia, who’s a pressure fighter with good hand speed, great durability and excellent punching power simply needs to be himself.

Expect a stoppage within the first four rounds as the champion will simply be too much for the undersized and inexperienced challenger.
