Jamie Mungia vs Maciej Sulęcki is again on for the summer season after their authentic date fell by. Jaime Mungia was set to face Maciej Sulęcki in a middleweight contest on April 23 earlier than the latter needed to withdraw as a result of an harm. D’Mitrius Ballard was briefly thought of as a alternative earlier than he too suffered an harm and was pressured to withdraw. Many thought of him to be the extra fascinating opponent for Mungia, however all issues thought of Sulęcki is a serviceable take a look at for his third struggle at a brand new weight class. Mungia’s promoter Oscar De La Hoya expressed his excitement for the return of one in every of his younger stars.
“Though there have been a number of adjustments, we’re joyful as a result of issues are again on observe for Jaime Munguia’s return on June nineteenth. I’m assured that he’ll ship an amazing efficiency in opposition to Maciej Sulęcki and present everybody why he deserves a chance to turn out to be a two-division world champion.”
Mungia echoed Oscar’s enthusiasm for his ring return.
“I really feel very excited to be returning on June nineteenth. I do know it is going to be an amazing struggle in opposition to Maciej Sulęcki. I feel he is a superb fighter, and I’ll be sure that to ship a fantastic struggle to all of the followers in El Paso, Texas and to everybody who will probably be watching from dwelling. Thanks very a lot to your help.”
Sulęcki is coming off a stay-busy win in Poland in opposition to Sasha Yengoyan in August 2020. Previous to that win, Sulęcki challenged for Demetrius Andrade’s middleweight title, however was knocked down early and dominated in a unanimous choice loss. Sulęcki has a win over co-feature participant Gabriel Rosado, a fight that he won by unanimous decision, but saw him hit the deck and barely survive in round 9.
The co-feature for this card matches Rosado with Bektemir Melikuziev in a super-middleweight bout. Melikuziev was final within the ring with Morgan Fitch on the undercard of Jojo Diaz vs Shavkatdzhon Rakhimov, successful by third-round knockout. That struggle itself was a alternative of types for a match-up with Kovalev which was cancelled after the previous light-heavyweight champion examined constructive for a banned artificial testosterone.
Hopefully this matchup will present extra motion than Rosado’s final bout in opposition to Danny Jacobs, a certain entry into the corridor of fame for unwatchable fights. Actually, I’ve a lot increased hopes for this one. Rosado has proven up to now that he’s not one to again down when outgunned, though he’s actually up in opposition to it with a powerful, vicious body-puncher in Bek the Bully. Each of those fights ought to ship when it comes to leisure worth, even when they’re not notably even matchups.
