Re: Jaime Munguia vs. Takeshi Inoue
Jaime Munguia sees action for the first time in 2019, as he puts his WBO junior middleweight title on the line Saturday, Jan. 26 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, 7 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.
Will one of the sport's brightest young stars continue to grow as a fighter or will Inoue be able to rise to the occasion when he battles the toughest opponent of his career?
Jaime Munguia and Takeshi Inoue will fight at the Toyota Center in Houston. It will mark the first time Munguia fights in Houston, while Inoue is making his U.S. debut.
