Jaime Munguia will be the star of a new episode of the rivalry between Mexico and Puerto Rico on November 13, when he steps into the ring to face Gabriel Rosado in a middleweight bout.
The Mexican fighter is looking for greater challenges in the division, because his goal is very clear: to be world champion, when facing Rosado he will face a man of experience who has fought with: Daniel Jacobs, Martin Murray, Jermanll Charlo, Peter Quillin to name a few.
“We know he is an experienced opponent, who has had big challenges in his cart. So, we are excited and happy to be fighting Gabriel Rosado,” said Munguia, who is training at the Otomi Ceremony Center at 3,000m high.
The public and both teams expect a worthy fight and believe that their styles are compatible for that to be a reality: “I think so, the truth is that I will give my best on November 13 for that fight to be engraved in history”. For his part, Erik “Terrible” Morales, Mexican boxing glory and all the fighter’s trainer, agrees with his pupil: “I would think that their styles are similar, and what we are working on is to make it an explosive and enjoyable fight for the public. Undoubtedly it will be a great Mexico-Puerto Rico fight”.
Munguía, despite having already been world champion, symbolizes youth and Rosado, experience. This is very clear to “El Terrible” who is not worried about this fight. “Jaime’s youth and strength is going to be quite important, it will be a key point to open the door and find the holes we need. Jaime is a smart, strong fighter. He is a fighter who has been given the opportunity to complement what he knows how to do. I don’t doubt that he has the strength to solve the problem in the ring,” said Morales.
The only thing left is to wait for the opening bell on November 13 at the Honda Center arena in California and see what place this fight can occupy in the historic contests between Mexico and Puerto Rico.
