“Although there have been several changes, we are happy because things are back on track for Jaime Munguia’s return on June 19,” said Oscar De La Hoya, Chairman and CEO of Golden Boy. “I’m confident that he will deliver a tremendous performance against Maciej Sulecki and show everyone why he deserves an opportunity to become a two-division world champion.

“At the same time, we’re very excited to have Bektemir Melikuziev face a real tough test against Gabriel Rosado. If he can look impressive against Rosado, then a world title shot will be just around the corner.”

  • Is it possible for a real fight fan to not be a Gabriel Rosado fan? I great example of behaving like a fighter and fight whoever is willing to fight. He approach the sport as his job and always ready to fight. Rosado fights guys with more speed, strength, talent, favor and always make a great fight night. The fans need to give these journeyman (Chisora, chop chop Corley, Kevin Johnson, etc.) their flowers now, not when they are gone from the sport. They dont get enough credit fighting the very best Boxing has to offer.

  • I anticipate Munguia will take care of Sulecki, so let the countdown to Andrade vs. Munguia commence.

  • I don’t blame Munguia, but you gotta admit he hs been very well protected. Needs to fight a real opponent.

  • Rosado always put in tough, wish he had some easy fights then put in tough, hope he isn’t too worn out!!!
