Jaime Munguia faces Takeshi Inoue, hopes for a showdown with Canelo Alvarez down the road

ESPN - 01-24


Junior middleweight world titlist Jaime Munguia and his co-promoters, Golden Boy and Zanfer Promotions, have ambitious plans for the rising Mexican star. If all goes well over the next few fights there is little doubt that the big fight he is being positioned for in the future is a shot at unified middleweight world champion and countryman Canelo Alvarez, who is also with Golden Boy and represents the big-money, high-profile fight every titleholder and contender seeks in and around the 160-pound division. But it's a process to get there and Munguia and his team know it.
