Canelo will defend his undisputed super-middleweight championship against former WBO light-middleweight titleholder Jaime Munguia at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas

Munguia holds a perfect 43-0 record and fans are excited about the prospect of him pulling off a big upset against one of boxing’s pound-for-pound best fighters. 

Join LowKickMMA as we break down both men’s careers and the boxing odds before offering you an official prediction of how Canelo vs Munguia will play out. 

Canelo Alvarez 

Canelo is a big -550 favourite ahead of his latest fight, which may seem weird to some considering he’s going in against an unbeaten ex-champion. 

However, the 33-year-old has earned a reputation for ruining peoples perfect records and is therefore heavily fancied to do the same against Munguia this weekend.

Every fighter Canelo fought during his 168lbs undisputed run was undefeated, but Callum Smith, Billy Joe Saunders, and Caleb Plant were no match for him.

The boxing superstar stopped two of those men and 21 of the 29 of people he’s beaten so far, so betting on a knockout against Munguia might be the way to get some value from the favourite.

Canelo is +175 to close the show inside the distance but that won’t be easy against an opponent who has never been dropped and is known for having a granite chin. 

The bookmakers seem to think Munguia is more likely to see the final bell, but they don’t give him much chance of winning as Alvarez is -110 to get it done via the judges.

You’ll have to bet big to make any serious money backing Canelo this weekend. It’s now just about deciding if he’s such a sure thing that it’s worth it. 

Jaime Munguia

Lots of cash will be made by underdog lovers if Munguia pulls off an upset.

The 27-year-old is +375 to win by any method and one quick glance of the records tells you why – he’s never been in with anyone half as good as his next opponent. 

Liam Smith, Sergey Derevyanchenko, Gabe Rosado, and Sadam Ali are the biggest names on his resume, and he needed to go the distance to beat everyone but Ali. 

Munguia’s last win over John Ryder seemed to show him reaching a new level as he stopped the Englishman, who went all the way with Canelo less than a year earlier, inside nine rounds.

33 opponents have succumbed to his power but the oddsmakers think there’s virtually no chance of Canelo losing by KO as they’ve priced it at +1000.

We tend to agree as he’s never shown any signs of a weak chin. In fact, he’s got a remarkable ability to take big shots without being fazed one bit. 

However, he has been outboxed before. Munguia has a blueprint for victory after seeing Canelo get outpointed by Floyd Mayweather and Dmitry Bivol. 

At odds of +700 it may be worth betting on Munguia becoming the third man to beat him by decision, but as the massive odds suggest it is a very long shot.

Official prediction

Like many people, we believe Canelo will win this fight fairly easily. 

Munguia doesn’t have the technical ability that Mayweather used to beat Alvarez, or the size that helped Bivol retain his WBA light-heavyweight belt in 2022. 

The only question in our mind is: Will Canelo be able to find a finish?

We think so as Munguia doesn’t have the size to impose his will and is also very hittable, which will not be a good thing as the rounds progress this weekend. 

Therefore, our official prediction is Canelo to win by KO. It will most probably happen in the second half of the fight, but we’ll just be betting on a finish anytime at +175.
