Canelo Alvarez and Jaime Munguia Set for May 4 Showdown in Las Vegas"

In a major boxing development, sources have confirmed that Canelo Alvarez and Jaime Munguia are in the final stages of negotiations for a blockbuster bout on May 4th in Las Vegas. The clash will see Alvarez defending his undisputed super middleweight championship in what is considered a significant coup for Premier Boxing Champions (PBC), marking their second pay-per-view event in collaboration with Amazon’s Prime Video.

The fight comes as a one-fight deal between Alvarez and PBC, following their recent parting of ways with two bouts left on a three-fight agreement signed in June. Despite initial plans for a championship defense against Jermall Charlo in May falling through, Alvarez’s return to PBC sets the stage for an exciting showdown with Munguia.

Munguia, a 27-year-old Mexican fighter with a record of 43-0 and 34 KOs, is fresh off a career-best win against John Ryder in January. Co-promoted by Zanfer and Golden Boy, Munguia has steadily risen through the ranks under the guidance of Hall of Fame trainer Freddie Roach. This fight will mark Alvarez’s first Mexican opponent since Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. in 2017, adding an extra layer of intrigue to the matchup.

Alvarez, ESPN’s No. 4 pound-for-pound boxer with a record of 60-2-2 and 39 KOs, had initially discussed a return to DAZN for bouts with Munguia and Edgar Berlanga. However, stalled negotiations led him back to the table with PBC, offering fans the prospect of witnessing the sport’s top attraction in action once again.

The 33-year-old plans to fight on Mexican Independence Day weekend in September, further fueling anticipation for his upcoming bouts. While the article acknowledges potential future matchups, it emphasizes the lucrative nature of the Alvarez-Munguia clash, signaling a departure from the originally planned fights against the Charlo brothers.

As the boxing world eagerly awaits this high-profile showdown, the door remains open for what could be one of Canelo’s biggest fights against rising star David Benavidez.
