One of boxing's youngest stars returns to action when Jaime Munguia looks to defend his WBO junior middleweight title for the fifth time against Patrick Allotey from Dignity Health Sports Park in Carson, Calif., live on DAZN.
The 22-year-old Munguia (33-0, 26 KOs) comes in with a point to prove after winning a controversial majority decision over Dennis Hogan in April.
Negotiations were ongoing for a battle featuring Munguia and former two-division champion Jessie Vargas. But Munguia wanted the fight to be at a catchweight of 156 pounds while Vargas wanted it to be at 154 and for the championship. Vargas decided to go in a different direction, and Munguia quickly made the fight with Allotey.
Allotey (40-3, 30 KOs) competes in the United States for only the second time. In April 2015, Allotey got knocked out by Patrick Teixeira. Since then, the native of Ghana has won 10 of his last 11 including a unanimous decision win of Sherif Kasongo in December to earn the crack at Munguia.
On paper, this appears to be a stay-busy fight for Munguia and perhaps the last time he steps through the ropes as a junior middleweight. He has been struggling with each passing battle to make weight, which appears to be affecting his performances.
Here's a complete guide to the Jaime Munguia vs. Patrick Allotey fight, which is available exclusively for streaming on DAZN. The card was to include Ryan Garcia, but his fight was canceled after opponent Avery Sparrow didn't show up for the weigh-in.
