Munguia’s fans will be glad this fight is happening, as he’s been targeting a fight against Canelo since he turned professional 11 years ago. The rest of the fans who wanted to see Canelo (60-2-2, 39 KOs) take on the dangerous, David Benavidez or David Morrell Jr., will be disappointed with this news.

Those are the fights that they wanted to see from Canelo, not Munguia (43-0, 34 KOs), who will be a massive underdog with little chance of winning. Munguia is an upgrade from Canelo’s last opponent, Jermell Charlo, but not by much. Munguia will at least try to win, but it will be hopelessly overmatched unless Canelo gets old overnight.

It’s going to be interesting to see how the build-up goes between these two, with the press conferences requiring a translator for Munguia. Canelo speaks broken English, but it’s unclear if he can speak well enough to create buzz for this fight.

Munguia was the guy that Premier Boxing Champions (PBC] wanted for the May 4th date, reportedly believing that it was a more financially viable fight for them on Amazon Prime PPV than Canelo’s original choice, Jermall Charlo.

Munguia is a fight that will make money, but it’s not going to be the blockbusters of Canelo’s first two fights against Gennadiy Golovkin or his fights against Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Miguel Cotto. Munguia will interest enough fans to make PBC happy.

The fight is a sure thing win for Canelo in my opinion.

Canelo Munguia Boxing Odds

Canelo Alvarez is stepping into the ring as the heavy favorite at -550, while Jaime Munguia plays the hopeful underdog at +375.

Will the Fight Go the Distance?
The wise guys say “Yes” at -180, betting that these two will dance around long enough to hear the final bell. If you fancy a bit of chaos and think they’ll run out of steam before then, “No” will net you a bit more at +150.

Exact Fight Outcome – Place Your Bets!
If you’re feeling clairvoyant, the exact outcome bets are where you can really show off. Fancy a KO? That’s sitting at a tempting 17/4. A TKO is more likely at 11/5, or if you’re really out on a limb, a DQ is a long shot at 40/1. And for those who love a good, old-fashioned unanimous decision, it’s even money at 1/1.

How Will They Win?
Jaime Munguia winning by KO is a longshot at 25/1, which makes sense if you think about it – knocking out Canelo would be like trying to punch a hole through a bank vault. If you reckon he can win by unanimous decision instead, that’s a slightly more plausible 11/1.

Canelo winning by KO is priced at 5/1, or if you prefer a technical knockout, it’s at 11/4. A unanimous decision in favor of Canelo is a safer bet at 6/5. Feeling whimsical? A split decision for Canelo will fetch you a neat 19/2.

Round Betting – Get Specific
If you’re the type to predict not just the winner but the when, round betting is your playground. Canelo knocking out Munguia in the first round is a wild 66/1, with the odds shortening as the rounds progress. For Munguia, managing a KO in the early rounds is about as likely as finding a sober chap at closing time, with odds of 100/1 in the first couple of rounds.

Group Round Betting – Broad Strokes
Broaden your horizon with group round betting. Canelo to end it between rounds 1 and 2? That’s at 28/1. Munguia making a miracle happen between rounds 1 and 2 is at a lofty 50/1.

Knockdown Props – Taking the Fall
Will both fighters taste the canvas? Yes at +1000, because why not sprinkle some drama? If you think only one will get a close-up of the mat, it’s -120 either way.
