Livescore Tuesday, April 23

Fight fans have been waiting for a step up in competition for Jaime Munguia, and the Mexican star could do worse than battle-tested former world title challenger Sergiy Derevyanchenko on June 10. 

The pair will collide at the Toyota Arena in Ontario, California, on a card that will air on DAZN.

Munguia (41-0) turned pro in 2013. At just 26, he claimed super welterweight gold by beating Sadam Ali in 2018 for the WBO belt. He defended successfully on five occasions, beating the likes of Liam Smith, Takashi Inoue, and Dennis Hogan. Electing to vacate the belt, Munguia moved to middleweight in 2020. 

Since defeating Kamil Szeremeta and Gabriel Rosado, many thought he would be facing the best of the division by this point. Tied to Golden Boy Promotions, Munguia is certain that a victory over Derevyanchenko gives him a great shot of securing those fights.

Promoter Oscar De La Hoya also believes a win could open the door for bouts against Daniel Jacobs and Gennadiy Golovkin.

“I’m happy to begin my year versus Derevyanchenko. He’s a solid opponent and a good test for my career,” Munguia told Ring. “This fight here is the next step in my career.”

A 2007 World Championships bronze medalist, Derevyanchenko turned pro in 2014. The Ukrainian made himself known when he took Daniel Jacobs to the limit in 2018, losing via split decision in a fight for the IBF middleweight belt. He got a second crack at gold in 2019 and also forced Golovkin to kick it up a notch. Derevyanchenko lost a close unanimous decision, again for the IBF championship.

The 37-year-old has gone 1-2 since then, losing to Jermall Charlo and Carlos Adames, but won his last bout in July 2022 against Joshua Conley. All those fights went the distance, something he wants to avoid against Munguia.

“I don’t want decision,” Derevyanchenko told Boxing Scene. “I lost a decision to Daniel Jacobs, Golovkin, and every guy. It’s close fight, and you don’t know who win, I don’t want decision.”
