As the highly anticipated fight between Jaime Munguia and John Ryder approaches, Oscar De La Hoya, also known as "The Golden Boy," has shared his thoughts on the upcoming bout.

Despite acknowledging Ryder's skill and experience, De La Hoya believes that Munguia is prepared to take on top-tier opponents like Canelo Alvarez or David Benavidez later this year. Munguia, coming off a victory against Sergiy Derevyanchenko in his last fight, is seen by De La Hoya as ready for bigger challenges in the super middleweight division.

Munguia's victory against Derevyanchenko was hard-fought, with the Ukrainian boxer moving up from middleweight to meet the super middleweight limit. In contrast, Ryder has been competing in the super middleweight division for the past seven years and has faced tough opponents like Alvarez.

De La Hoya expressed confidence in Munguia's abilities, stating that a win against Ryder would elevate him to championship level and position him for future high-profile fights. He emphasized the significance of securing big-name matchups in the 168-pound division, hinting at potential clashes with the likes of Canelo Alvarez and David Benavidez.

The fight between Munguia and Ryder is set to take place at the Footprint Center in Arizona, with DAZN streaming the event as the main attraction of a five-fight broadcast.
