Jaime Munguia & Jimmy Kelly Clash In 12-Round Super
Middleweight Fight In Anaheim On June 11
After a triumphant homecoming in Tijuana, Mexico in
February, former world champion and undefeated Mexican
super-star, Jaime Munguia (39-0, 31 KOs) will return to
Anaheim's Honda Center on Saturday, June 11 to face off
against former world title challenger, Jimmy "Kilrain''
Kelly (26-2, 10 KOs) of Manchester, UK. The 12-round super
middleweight fight will stream live on DAZN worldwide,
"I am very excited to return to Anaheim and fight in front
of all the fans against a high-quality English rival like
Kelly," said Jaime Munguia. "It won't be an easy night, but
we are preparing very hard. This new edition of Mexico vs.
England will be very exciting for all fight fans, and I am
convinced that I will pass this test and be on my way to a
world title soon!"
“As a child, I dreamt of fighting in America, that dream
came true when I beat the undefeated Kanat Islam,” said
Jimmy Kelly. “Munguia is the number one guy at 160lbs. To be
the best, you need to beat the top fighters in the world.
June 11 can’t come quick enough. Munguia is in for the fight
of his life.”
The 'Pride of Tijuana' Jaime Munguia is ranked as one of the
top middleweights in the world by all sanctioning
organizations. After a spectacular victory against "King,"
Gabriel Rosado in November 2021 and a knock-out victory
against D'Mitrius "Big Meech'' Ballard during his homecoming
in February 2022, Munguia is on a mission to prove he is the
best in the division and elevate his record to 40-0. A
former world champion in the junior middleweight division,
Munguia has successfully defended his titles and record
against challengers. After defending his world title five
times against fighters like Liam "Beefy" Smith, Brandon "Bad
Boy" Cook, Takeshi Inoue, Dennis Hogan, and Patrick Allotey,
Muguia will be ready to defend record when he faces Jimmy “Kilrain''
Kelly on June 11.
Undefeated since 2019, Jimmy "Kilrain" Kelly stunned the
boxing world last time out beating Kanat Islam via a
majority decision in February. Ranked #4 in the middleweight
division in the UK, Kelly will be prepared to claim another
victory during his second US outing. A former world title
challenger, and a former holder of the WBO Inter-Continental
Super Welter Title, Kelly will be looking to elevate his
profile, record, and standing in the world rankings vs.
Munguia on June 11.
