Jaime Munguia (34-0, 27 KOs) and Gary O’Sullivan (30-3, 21 KOs) hosted a press conference Tuesday The Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas to formally announce their 12-round middleweight fight, which will take place on Saturday, Jan. 11 at the very same place and will be streamed live on DAZN.
Jaime Munguia: I’m excited to be moving up to 160 lbs. where they say that some of the most important fighters in boxing are. I have a very tough fighter in front of me, Gary O’Sullivan who’s very tough. If I want those bigger fights then I have to demonstrate that I’m worthy of that against this guy, so I have to do my best in order to rise up in the rankings. I look forward to delivering a great fight for Mexico. Viva Mexico.”
Gary ‘Spike’ O’Sullivan: Jaime Munguia is a great fighter, I’m very motivated by this challenge; he’s a young world champion, undefeated. For many, this is the stuff of dreams to come to his own backyard and fight the undefeated champion of the world. I’ve never felt the more motivated in my career. I look forward to putting on a show for January 11. I’m going to prepare very hard for this fight, harder than ever, and come January 11 I’ll be ready for war.”
