Fighter History

Canelo Alvarez

The sport currently boasts a litany of rising stars, but Saul "Canelo" Alvarez remains the face of boxing in North America. Throughout nearly 20 years in the squared circle, Canelo has amassed 60 professional victories. Despite such an expansive sample size, he still maintains a 65% KO rate. In his most recent work, Alvarez thrashed Jermell Charlo over 12 rounds en route to a UD victory, scoring a seventh-round knockdown.

Canelo is one of the most dynamic figures the sport has ever seen. He combines powerful striking abilities with tactical defense. Known for feints and elusive head movement, Alvarez is a top counter puncher in boxing's lengthy history. He's both tough to square up and very challenging to overpower. The tale of the tape has the Guadalajara, MX native at 5-foot-8 with a reach of 70.5 inches.

Despite moving up as high as light heavyweight, Canelo has never been knocked down in his professional career. He is a matchup nightmare for most fighters he laces up with. Additionally, Alvarez is present near the top of several respected pound-for-pound lists, such as the Transnational Boxing Rankings Board (5th), BoxRec (3rd), ESPN (4th) and The Ring (4th).

At the age of 33, Alvarez is approaching the twilight of his fighting days. He now chooses his matches methodically as Floyd "Money" Mayweather once did; the current super middleweight king has certainly earned the right to do so.

To this point, only Mayweather and the much-larger Dmitrii Bivol have been able to defeat Canelo, Simply, it makes sense to see that Munguia is a +380 long shot on the moneyline this weekend in Vegas. That listing could be longer by fight night.

Jaime Munguia

A 27-year-old brawler from Tijuana, Mexico, Jaime Aarón Munguía Escobedo is looking to shock the world on Saturday night. As noted, he is undefeated through 43 pro bouts and operates with heavy fists. Munguia heads to Sin City with a career 79.09% KO rate, which has earned him the No. 3 ranking at super middleweight on BoxRec.

Notably, the challenger is a bit taller than the champ here. Munguia stands at an even six feet with a 72-inch reach. Seemingly, his size, youth and aggressive nature could present Canelo's most difficult challenge in the past two years; it also might play right into Alvarez' counter-punching prowess.

If Munguia is to take the IBF, WBA, WBC and WBO super middleweight straps from Canelo, the younger Mexican will need to harness his power with the utmost precision. To reiterate, Alvarez has never hit the canvas as a professional, which is displayed in Munguia's 10-to-1 odds in the knockout market. He must be prepared for deep water.

Munguia most recently fought three months ago, defeating John Ryder by TKO in Phoenix. On that night, Munguia landed a sharp left hook to the southpaw's liver in the ninth round before adding a right hand to the head. Ryder hit the mat, beat the 10 count and was knocked down again. He stood up, but it was shortly ended on the referee's accord.

As a mutual opponent, Canelo also fought Ryder last Summer. In that bid, Alvarez won easily via UD in front of his hometown crowd, but was unable to score a stoppage victory on the Englishman (despite earning a knockdown).
