In a recent interview with Fight Hype, Jaime Munguia shared insights on his upcoming fight against Sergiy Derevyanchenko and his larger game plan.

Upfront about his next fight, Munguia acknowledged the high stakes and intense competition he’s up against. “Without a doubt, Derevyanchenko is the toughest opponent I’ve squared off with,” Munguia confessed, promising a great fight.

Regarding his personal aspirations for this crucial bout, Munguia spoke with determination and grit. He expressed, “I want to make a statement that echoes through the boxing world. The ideal outcome? A knock-out. But if not, I want it to be a fight where there’s a clear difference between my opponent and me – something that hasn’t happened in my last few fights.”

While he’s focused on the imminent challenge, Munguia also shed light on his ambitions for the future. “This fight, as tough as it is, isn’t the zenith for me. There are bigger names, like Gennady Golovkin or Charlo. My priority now is to win on June 10th, but if everything aligns, I wouldn’t shy away from stepping into the ring with heavyweights like Charlo or Golovkin.”

He exudes a calm assurance, grounded in the reality of the boxing world. “There’s no desperation here. Opportunities come and go as they please. All I hope for is that post this fight, I get to participate in a fight everyone’s been eager to see.”

David Benavidez was among the potential future fighters mentioned, and Munguia believes that a fight with him could go either way. He exhibited respect and admiration for all his potential challengers.

As the interview wrapped up, it was clear that Munguia is a boxer who balances patience with strategy. His approach to his career is measured and methodical, making him one to watch out for in the future.
