Via Allan Fox: Undefeated middleweight title contender Jaime Munguia (39-0.31 KOs) and former IBF/WBA champion Daniel ‘Miracle Man’ Jacobs (37-4, 30) are in talks for an intriguing clash at 168 lb on DAZN in the summer .
Dan Rafael is reporting on the negotiations between Munguia and Jacobs. For that to happen, DAZN will need the green light to have this fight as the frontrunner.
Munguia against Jacobs doesn’t make any sense now because he lost the first one, and he looks timid, old, and over.
Of course, as bad as Jacobs has looked lately, he’s been better in the world than Munguia’s opponents since his move to the 160lb division five games ago.
In Munguia’s recent match, he defeated someone named D’Mitrius Ballard by knockout in the third round on February 19.
DAZN opted to stream the Munguia-Ballard match for the main event, even though Ballard was not a top contender and few boxing fans had ever heard of him.
Munguia’s objections since moving to 160:
- D’Mitrius Ballard
- Kamil Szeremeta
- Gabe Rosado
- Tureano Johnson
- Gary O’Sullivan
Jacobs used to be a good boxer years ago, but lately he’s been like a fossil in his defeats to John Ryder and Canelo Alvarez.
Considering that 35-year-old Jacobs lost his last game to John Ryder last February and was allegedly beaten in another poor game against Gabe Rosado in 2020, I don’t know why DAZN would agree. with this bad game.
They should let Golden Boy know they want to see Munguia fight a zombie for a change because it’s been so easy for him since he moved into the 160 lb division in 2020, fighting the old guys and recently beat the others.
Munguia, 25, was supposed to fight Demetrius Andrade for the WBO middleweight title but turned it down. Recently, Munguia turned down a 160-lb WBC belt remover against Zhanibek Alimkhanuly.
Munguia wanted to fight for the Gennadiy Golovkin 160lb IBF title, but that didn’t happen this year. It was someone Munguia frequently mentioned that he wanted to fight.
Dan Rafael said: “Representatives for Jamie Munguia and Daniel Jacobs have begun discussing a fight between them that will spark a DAZN card this summer. Against Freaks Unite.
Munguia’s Golden Boy co-promoter and Matchroom Boxing promoter Eddie Hearn and Jacobs manager Keith Connolly are in talks over a showdown that will likely take place north of the class limit, sources say. medium 160 pounds a bit. Jacobs’ last three games have all been super-middleweight.
