Promoter Eddie Hearn thinks that Jaime Munguia will be a tough opponent for Canelo Alvarez because of his youth and tenacity.

Munguia (43-0, 34 KOs) has already left a lasting impression on the boxing world at the age of just 27. His most recent triumph at the Footprint Centre in Phoenix, Arizona, by ninth-round TKO against John Ryder has cemented his status as one of the top contenders.

While acknowledging Canelo's experience and better technical skill, Hearn emphasises Munguia's youth and perfect record as crucial elements that might level the playing field. "He's a young, new guy. Canelo has fought in a few conflicts, but he is no longer young and inexperienced. That seems like a competitive fight, in my opinion," Hearn told Fight Hub TV.

Hearn says that David Benavidez and Munguia are Canelo's two primary opponents in his upcoming match. Nonetheless, he thinks that with Munguia's passion and the novelty he offers the ring, a bout with him may be more profitable and competitive.

Should the fight with Canelo fall through, Hearn would be open to setting up a match between Edgar Berlanga and Munguia. Berlanga, who is well-liked and powerful, particularly in New York, would be a formidable opponent for Munguia.

Hearn's analysis of these possible fights highlights the competitive aspect of boxing, where a fight's result may be greatly influenced by a fighter's age, heart, and technical proficiency. The boxing world is interested to watch what Munguia does next, whether it's facing Canelo or another elite contender like Berlanga, given his recent performance and potential.
