Jaime Munguia didn’t want to wait around for the likes of Demetrius Andrade or Jermall Charlo.
He wanted to get back into the ring in early 2022. The 25-year-old is getting his wish as he takes on D’Mitrius Ballard on Saturday from Plaza Monumental de Playas de Tijuana in Tijuana, Mexico, which can be seen worldwide on DAZN.
Munguia is one of boxing’s most exciting talents whose knockouts have been by fans across the world, but now is the time for the Mexican to push on and reach his full potential.
Ballard on the other hand is looking to re-assert himself as one of the top names in a packed middleweigh division after a minor setback in 2021 due to injury.
