O’Sullivan has been in the boxing game for a decade now and has been through every possible moment in the ring and stands a good person to introduce Munguia into the Middleweight division, having faced the likes of Antoine Douglas, Chris Eubank Jr. and Billy Joe Saunders.
“For me it’s a dream come true to fight the undefeated champion of the world and the number one ranked fighter in the world,” said Gary O’Sullivan. “It makes it even better that he’s Mexican. I grew up watching the great Mexican champions and to get the opportunity to fight Jaime is an honor. I will leave no stone unturned in my preparation for this fight. I can’t recall feeling more motivated by any other fight in my career thus far. I believe this fight will be a war that the fans will talk about for many years to come.”
According to Golden Boy Promotions CEO, Munguia is developing fast into a star in boxing and O’Sullivan’s experience will be very helpful while he gets acquainted with the middleweight environment.
“Golden Boy always likes to kick the year off with a bang, and January 11 will be no exception,” said Oscar De La Hoya, Chairman and CEO of Golden Boy. “Jaime Munguia is developing into a big star in this sport, so we’re happy that our strategic partnership with Zanfer Promotions has been able to continually deliver great fights featuring this young talent. At the same time, ‘Spike’ O’Sullivan is an exciting puncher with a lot of experience, so Munguia will have to come very well prepared with all that he’s been learning under trainer Erik Morales. It also goes without saying that their styles are guaranteed to make for a fun fight for as long as it lasts.”
