MUNGUIA KO’S O’SULLIVAN IN THE ELEVENTH!

Former WBO jr middleweight champion Jaime Munguia (35-0, 28 KOs) made his move to the middleweight division a successful one, knocking out Gary “Spike” O’Sullivan (30-4, 21 KOs) in the eleventh round on Saturday night at The Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas.

Former WBO jr middleweight champion Jaime Munguia (35-0, 28 KOs) made his move to the middleweight division a successful one, knocking out Gary “Spike” O’Sullivan (30-4, 21 KOs) in the eleventh round on Saturday night at The Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas.

Munguia looking strong at his new home of 160, rocking the Irishman in the opener before O’Sullivan gave him something to think about. Munguia’s commitment to the body sometimes meant a few strayed south of the border on a couple of occasions, earning him a point deduction in the sixth before another low blow put O’Sullivan on the canvas in the seventh.

Munguia as per usual was unrelenting in his offence, a succession of shots putting O’Sullivan on the canvas in the eleventh as the corner threw in the towel, Time 2:17.

“This was a new division for me,” said Munguia. “I felt stronger and with more conditioning, I just needed to adjust my speed to feel fully comfortable. I would give my performance a 7 or 8 because I needed to do a few more things, but we will get there fight by fight. I was confused about whether to attack or not to attack. Sometimes I thought I had to attack, but I didn’t. But thanks to my corner and Erik Morales I was able to get him. On the last rounds, I was more attentive, even though I still got punched a few times.”

On his future endeavours, Munguia stated “I would like to fight the best of this division: Canelo, Golovkin, or the Charlos. I know they have more experience, but I look forward to those fights. I want to thank everyone in San Antonio and Viva Mexico.”

Former WBC female heavyweight champion Alejandra “La Tigre” Jimenez (13-0-1, 9 KOs) dropped down to super middleweight to dethrone moved the now former WBC and WBO female world champion Franchon “The Heavy-Hitting Diva” Crews-Dezurn (6-1, 2 KOs) via a ten round split decision. In a tight affair, Jimenez was adjudged to have done enough on the judges scorecards to win by scores of 97-93, 98-92 Jimenez, 97-92 Crews-Dezurn
