DAZN kicked off the new year at the Alamodome on Saturday night, where Jaime Munguia (35-0, 28 KOs) won his middleweight debut with a stoppage over Gary ‘Spike’ O’Sullivan (30-4, 21 KOs). O’Sullivan’s corner threw the white towel in the 11th Round following powerful combinations and vicious body shots by Munguia, that ultimately lead to his TKO victory. In the co-main event, Alejandro Jimenez (13-0-1, 9 KOs) upset Franchon Crews Dezurn (6-2, (2 KOs) in a thrilling split decision victory to become the new WBC & WBO Female Super Middleweight Titlist.
Earlier in the evening, Hector Tanajara Jr. (19-0, 5 KOs) remained undefeated after going the distance in a tough battle with Juan Carlos Burgos (33-4-2, 21 KOs), and Joshua Franco (16-1-2, 8 KOs) earned a TKO victory over Jose Burgos (17-3, 14 KOs) in a super flyweight bout.
“I wasn’t sure because when I had him hurt that’s when he would hit hard, so I had to let him get tired then find the finish. I would give myself an eight or nine. I had to do some more things, but will take this fight by fight.
“I was confused whether to attack or not, but thanks to my corner and Robert Morales. I think I did better at 160. I feel like I wore down less cause of the weight cut. I felt I threw more punches, more combinations, and it made the difference.
“I want to fight the best in the division, Golovkin, Canelo, or Charlos.”
“I was taking my time, and studying, that was part of the strategy. We had a great preparation, I feel great, feel awesome, have a great team, and come from the best country.
“I looked past all the hard work. The time I wasn’t able to eat during New Years and Christmas. The hard worked paid off. All the time I was away from my daughters, now to be champion at super middleweight is great.
“We’re going for Claressa Shields at middleweight.”
