Canelo vs Munguia trailer

Saul “Canelo” Alvarez faces an intriguing test against Jaime Munguia tonight, as he defends the undisputed super-middleweight titles in Las Vegas.

Canelo vs Munguia is an all-Mexican clash on Cinco de Mayo weekend, with Munguia aiming to take the torch from his compatriot, a certified pound-for-pound star.

Munguia, 27, is six years Canelo’s junior and enters Vegas undefeated. Last time out, the Tijuana fighter – who has a significant height advantage over Alvarez – stopped John Ryder in January, sending the Briton into retirement.

Canelo also fought Ryder recently, outpointing him in May before cruising past Jermell Charlo in September. Now, the Guadalajara defends the undisputed belts yet again.
