Jaime Munguia is in action for the first time in 2019 as he puts his WBO junior middleweight title on the line Saturday against Takeshi Inoue at the Toyota Center in Houston, live and exclusively on DAZN.
Munguia (31-0, 26 KOs) took the boxing world by storm in 2018 by competing five times — highlighted by his crushing fourth-round TKO of Sadam Ali in May to win the WBO championship. The 22-year-old followed that up with two successful title defenses in wrecking Liam Smith in July and Brandon Cook in September.
Inoue (13-0-1, seven KOs) ventures outside his home country of Japan for only the second time, having competed in Thailand in September 2016. The 29-year-old earned the right to face Munguia by defeating Yuki Nonaka in April.
It should be an entertaining night of fights at the home of the NBA's Houston Rockets.
