Jaime Munguia steps into the ring for the first time in 2024 when he faces John Ryder on January 27, live on DAZN.
Munguia was last in action in June, when he defeated Sergiy Derevyanchenko by unanimous decision. That result improved Munguia's record to 42-0, and now the Mexican looks to add another victory to his resumé when he takes on Ryder.
The Briton last fought in May, losing to undisputed world super middleweight champion Canelo Alvarez by unanimous decision.
A win by either man in this fight would put them a step closer to challenging Canelo's belts.
Here's everything you need to know ahead of Munguia vs. Ryder.
Date: Saturday, January 27 2024.
Time: At 09:00 PM ET

“I am very happy to return to the ring, and I’m excited to be with my people from Phoenix,” said Munguia. “We know that Ryder is a dangerous rival, but we are prepared for it. We have not stopped training and preparing. I am also very happy to have added Freddie Roach and his team to my camp. We are going to give a great night of boxing to everyone watching, and if we overcome this great test, I hope to see you all again in May. Viva Tijuana and Viva Mexico!”
“I’m glad this fight has been made,” said John Ryder. “I’m looking to kick 2024 off with a bang and make a statement come January 27.”
