Jaime Munguia will aim for the top in 2022, with names on his radar such as Sergiy Derevyanchenko and Gennadiy Golovkin, but before that happens, promoter Fernando Beltran of Zanfer Promotions, confessed that the undefeated Tijuana native will have a stop in the Mexican capital first. in the month of February.
The 25-year-old Munguia, 38-0 with 35 knockouts, is coming off a solid win against world ranked contender Gabriel Rosado, and his sights are set at the top of 160-pounds. His commercial style has placed him in the limelight of the Mexican and international fans, but he already feels the need to seek fights that allow him to caress glory with his own hands.
"All the great fighters that Mexico has had have had the opportunity to appear before the demanding fans of Mexico City, Julio Cesar Chavez, Erik Morales and many more did. And I feel that it is time for Jaime to present himself in the Mexican capital and we want it to be in the month of February of next year against a high-quality opponent," said Beltran to ESPN Deportes.
After that battle, the idea of Zanfer and Munguia is to face the winner of the upcoming battle between Sergey Derevyanchenko and Carlos Adames - although they do not rule out the scenario of facing world champions like Gennadiy Golovkin, Ryota Murata or Jermall Charlo.
The fight between Derevyanchenko and Adames will take place this Sunday night, as part of the Showtime pay-per-view undercard to the lightweight clash between Gervonta Davis and Isaac Cruz.
"If I could choose two possible rivals for next year they would be Derevyanchenko and Golovkin," Jaime stressed. "I'm coming off a good fight against a good opponent like Gabriel Rosado, I feel that we are getting better and better and that we are ready for those great fights with the champions, I am very happy with Zanfer and without a doubt I am excited to fight in Mexico City in the month February."
