Oscar De La Hoya Continues Campaign to Make Jaime Munguia WBC Champion

Golden Boy Promotions CEO Oscar De La Hoya again suggested the WBC needs to strip middleweight champion Jermall “Hit Man” Charlo (32-0, 22KO). Furthermore, he wants the WBC title added in the upcoming showdown between Jaime Munguia (41-0, 33KO) versus Sergiy Derevyanchenko (14-4, 10KO).

It is not the first time De La Hoya has suggested the WBC reclaim the title away from Hit Man. In February, he accused the organization of protecting the champion while hinting at a possible fight with Munguia.

3kingsboxing.com reported that former WBO junior middleweight champion Munguia dropped the news of a Derevyanchenko fight on June 10. With their showdown official, De La Hoya is looking to use this opportunity to get a title around his fighter’s waist.

The Golden Boy stable of fighters is fruitful. However, they are in desperate need of a male world champion, which they currently don’t have as of the writing of this article. They have three female world champions in unified champions Marlen Esparza and Yokasta Valle, and IBF flyweight champion Arely Mucino.


De La Hoya is known for stirring up trouble, but the WBC seems to be treating Charlo like a privileged champion. Normally, the organization doesn’t allow the champion to sit out this long, regardless of their personal issues.

In the past, they’ve been quick to place a fighter in recess with the right to challenge for the title upon returning to action. Also, with #1 ranked Gennady Golovkin in semi-retirement, with Jaime Munguia and Sergiy Derevyanchenko holding the next two spots, De La Hoya makes a compelling point.
