David Benavidez, Canelo, Edgar Berlanga are big fights in Jaime Munguia’s future but Ryder could have reached the end – Eddie Hearn

Jaime Munguia has the boxing world buzzing.

Munguia dropped John Ryder four times en route to a ninth-round technical knockout. 

Ryder last fought Canelo Alvarez going all 12 rounds in May. 

Munguia, who is in the frame for a Canelo fight, put himself firmly on a list of future opponents after Saturday night’s victory. 

“There are three really big fights out there for him,” said Eddie Hearn, the promoter of Munguia at the post-fight press conference. “[David] Benavidez fight is a huge fight for him. Canelo Alvarez is a huge fight. [Edgar] Berlanga is Mexico versus Puerto Rico, if Berlanga can look good on February 24.”

“I think [Munguia] is a very exciting fighter, exciting style. 43-0, it is obviously not my decision. If I had it my way it would be Edgar Berlanga, but [Munguia] has a lot of options ahead of him.”

Hearn also spoke about what might be in the future of John Ryder, who was well adrift on the scorecards before his trainer, Tony Sims, called the fight off. 

“Having reached the heights that he has reached, [getting] the Canelo Alvarez fight and the Jaime Munguia fight, There is a chance that it could be the end of the road for [John Ryder]. We really believed he could win tonight. He did as well. The start was a bit of a nightmare.

“Having two knockdowns in the first four rounds was very difficult for him. [He] was beaten by the younger, fresher man.”

After the win, the 27-year-old, Jaime Munguia improves to 43-0 with 34KOs. Ryder sees his record change to 32-7 (18KOs), aged 35.
