News and Notes:
Former world champion, and undefeated Mexican middleweight star, Jaime Munguia (38-0, 30 KOs), of Tijuana, Mexico, and Temple Hill, M.D.’s, D’Mitrus “Big Meech” Ballard (21-0-1, 13 KOs) will host a media conference call on Thursday, January 13 to kick off the promotion for their their upcoming fight for the WBO Intercontinental Middleweight Title. The 12-round event will take place on Saturday, February 19 streamed live exclusively on DAZN worldwide, excluding Mexico.
Carlos “El Caballo Bronco” Adames did his part and now he hopes Jaime Munguia does his.
Back in November, WBC President Mauricio Sulaiman said that he would order the winner of the Sergiy Derevyenchenko-Carlos Adames showdown to face Jaime Munguia to determine the mandatory challenger for the organization’s champion, Jermall Charlo.
Adames pulled off the upset victory on December 5th when he defeated Derevyenchenko via majority decision in Los Angeles on the Gervonta Davis-Isaac Cruz pay-per-view undercard.
Prior to the fight, Munguia and his team said they had no problem facing the Derevyencho-Adames winner and that they welcomed the challenge.
Munguia reiterated his willingness to fight Adames last week when he told Un Round Mas co-hosts Marco Antonio Barrera and Erik Morales (who is also his trainer) in an interview on their 18th episode that Caballo Bronco is on his hit list.
Instead of heading directly to the elimination bout, Munguia left many boxing insiders shaking their head when it was announced that he would face the unheralded and largely unknown D’Mitrius Ballard on February 19th.
