In the Astros Arena in Guadalajara on Saturday night, the former Mexican champion produced a stunning third round knockout in a fight that was broadcast worldwide on DAZN .
Munguia, who hopes to face Gennady Golovkin or Jermall Charlo for a world championship in the first half of 2023, showcased his punching power and proved he is ready to challenge for a world title once more.
Training under the watchful eyes of the former world champion Erik Morales, Munguia showed a great improvement in his skills with more control in his combinations and better management of the space inside the ring.
