A translator broke Munguia’s statement and added, “He hasn’t looked for ‘GGG’ to fight that they actually reached out to him first to fight ‘GGG’ and yes, you know he was interested then and he’s still interested. He thinks it’ll be a fun fight. People will like it and it’ll be an entertaining fight.”

Munguia follows an akin boxing approach to Golovkin, as he, too, is a highly aggressive fighter. Out of his 38 wins, Munguia has 30 wins coming by way of T/KO. With this, the 25-year-old’s KO ratio surges up to 78.95%.

Even if his fights go the distance, the Mexican boxer makes sure to keep his relentless pressure constantly on his opponents. In his last outing, Munguia waged a war against Gabriel Rosado.

Although he was the favorite, Munguia was still challenged by the stout Rosado. The two men exchanged a terrific amount of punches till the last bell. In the end, Munguia proved to be the oppressor as he bagged a UD win.
