Jaime Munguia closed the strong stage of his preparation on Tuesday in Temoaya, State of Mexico, and exhibited great physical and boxing form - for his scheduled return to the ring on Saturday, June 19, in El Paso, Texas.

Munguia will defend his WBO middleweight Intercontinental championship, in a contest being carried by DAZN and TV Azteca.

Munguia (36-0, 29 KO's) will face Polish contender Kamil Szeremeta (21-1, 5 KO's), in an interesting contest at 160-pounds.

Tijuana's Munguia, a former WBO junior middleweight champion, will have his third fight at middleweight. Szeremeta's last fight came in December of last year, when he lost his undefeated record after being stopped in seven rounds by IBF world champion Gennady Golovkin.

Munguia's tough workload in Temoaya lasted five weeks.

In his final tough day in the camp, Munguia went through twelve rounds of sparring with different boxers. The fighters who came in to exchange punches with him were Alexis Gutiérrez, Damián Sosa, Elvis Salazar and Venezuelan Endri Saavedra.

The Tijuana boxer impressed with his power and speed, as well as with the precision and variety in his punches, so his team, led by Erik Morales, was satisfied.

After training, his weight was checked and he was already very close to the super middleweight division, 10 days before he has to step on the scale, so for the remainder of this week, and when he travels to Texas, his job will be one of maintenance and ease.

In Szeremeta, the upcoming contest could be the final fight for Munguia before he receives the opportunity to contend for a world title - whether it's against IBF champion Golovkin or the current WBO world champion Demetrius Andrade.
