Jaime Munguia continues his pursuit of Canelo Alvarez or a potential title fight with Sergiy Derevyanchenko, an experienced title fight fighter who will provide stiff opposition. A knockout would catapult Munguia straight into a showdown against Alvarez, while any decision or loss casts doubt upon Munguia’s unblemished record.
One can criticize how 26-year-old Jaime Munguia has built his record, particularly at such an early stage of his career. But in comparison, Derevyanchenko has kept active against opponents since 2019 with ten wins out of 11. For our Munguia vs Derevyanchenko betting preview it is noteworthy that Munguia averages 4.34 rounds per fight while boasting an 80.49% knockout/stoppage rate in his fights.
Munguia currently stands as the fourth-ranked middleweight fighter and number-one Mexican-born middleweight fighter in his weight class. Munguia must move up a weight class for a fight with Canelo Alvarez.
Munguia will likely start off by working behind his jab to set up his straight right hand and should attempt to tie up Derevyanchenko and prevent any of the awkward shots from close range that were common during Coria’s fight, since Derevyanchenko is an experienced, hard-hitting, skilled fighter capable of taking punishment from close quarters.
Sergiy Derevyanchenko boasts impressive experience on both the amateur circuit and in high-profile boxing matches, such as against Carlos Adames at Staples Center, Daniel Jacobs, Gennadiy Golovkin at Madison Square Garden.
Derevyanchenko lost those three fights by decision and overcame being dropped early by Golovkin and Jacobs. Some believe Golovkin cheated Derevyanchenko out of their title fight – which many saw as being a 2019 Fight of the Year candidate – while Devevyanchenko currently ranks seventh at middleweight globally and should provide Munguia with no easy out.
Derevyanchenko started his professional career on an impressive 12-0 win streak after an illustrious 55-13 amateur career where he was stopped only twice; yet, despite this setback in recent bouts – going 2-4 over that span.
On Saturday night, we expect Munguia to prove superior and trounce Derevyanchenko; however, this battle may prove closer than anticipated due to Derevyanchenko’s durability allowing him to survive the entire fight.
