Jaime Munguia admitted to DAZN News earlier this week that Gabe Rosado would be his toughest test to date.
Rosado was that, but Munguia delivered the most accomplished performance of his young career to win via unanimous decision (119-109, 118-110, 117-111) from the Honda Center in Anaheim, Calif. DAZN News had it scored 120-108 for Munguia.
Munguia (38-0, 30 KOs) showed the new tools in his toolbox from the opening bell. He threw more combinations, jabs to the body, and his best defense to date.
The central theme for the majority of the fight was Munguia would control the round with his volume punching and power shots, but Rosado then turned things around at the end of the round with the chopping right hand and combinations of his round to make the round competitive but not enough to sway the judges.
For Munguia, he has a litany of options in the future. He’s the No. 1-ranked contender of the WBC and WBO, so that means the possibility of either Jermall Charlo or Demetrius Andrade. Charlo is without an upcoming foe, and Andrade defends his title against Jason Quigley on Nov. 19 on DAZN.
