Sadam Ali and Jaime Munguia are set for tomorrow night’s HBO main event, and Rey Vargas and Azat Hovhannisyan also made weight for the co-feature, which goes live tomorrow night at 10 pm ET from Verona, New York.
Ali (26-1, 14 KO) will be making the first defense of his WBO junior middleweight title, which was won from Miguel Cotto last December. Ali weighed in at 153 pounds, one below the limit. Munguia (28-0, 24 KO) came in at 152¾. The challenger is considered a top prospect in the sport, and is a very live dog in this fight.
The co-feature will see Vargas (31-0, 22 KO) defending his WBC super bantamweight title for the third time. He weighed in at 120 pounds, two below the 122-pound limit. Hovhannisyan (14-2, 11 KO) is getting his first world title opportunity. He’s won eight straight, and is coming off of a sixth-round knockout of Ronny Rios.
Topping the bill is the WBO Super Welterweight world championship clash between Sadam Ali, 26-1, and Jaime Munguia, 28-0. Munguia is a name fresh on the mind having been hotly linked as a replacement opponent for Gennady Golovkin in the wake of Canelo’s failed drugs test – the Nevada State Athletic Commission would go on to refuse to sanction the proposed bout – but the 21 year old Mexican has his crack at world title glory on at the weekend.
A crack that’s arose purely as a result of yet another withdrawal – this time to the mandatory challenger and, former WBO Super Welterweight champion, Liam Smith who was forced to pull out in thanks to an allergic reaction; the hope is that they’ll reschedule the fight for August with Frank Warren keen to bring it to the United Kingdom.
Mugnuia will be in his third fight of 2018 having secured two third round knockouts against Jose Carlos Paz and Johnny Navarrette already with the latter being enough to secure the WBC Latino title. Over the past twelve months Munguia has worked on his footwork and hand-speed enabling him to perform to the more archetypal explosivity expected of a Mexican boxer.
