Kamil Szeremeta Named New Opponent for Jaime Munguia
Jaime Munguia finally has an opponent for his June 19th fight at the Don Haskins Center. Kamil Szeremeta (21-1, 5 KOs) will step into the ring and take on the former WBC World Middleweight champ after Maciej Sulecki pulled out of the fight a few weeks ago. The 31 year-old Polish fighter has lost just once in his professional career, a seventh round stoppage against GGG last December on DAZN.
Munguia was originally supposed to fight Sulecki on April 24th, but that date was changed to June 19th due to an injury that the Polish challenger had suffered. D'Mitrius Ballard was named as a replacement for Sulecki, but he also injured himself training for the April 24th bout so it was moved back to June 19th and Sulecki was reinserted as Munguia's opponent. Then, a little more than a week go, Sulecki pulled out of the fight for a second time for no apparent reason, leaving the 24-year old Mexican fan favorite without an opponent. Now, Munguia finally has his opponent in Szeremeta.
In addition, the co-main event will feature undefeated Bektemir Melikuziev (7-0, 6 KOs) meet veteran Gabriel Rosado (25-13-1, 14 KOs) for the WBO International and WBA Continental Americas Super Middleweight title. The WBC Flyweight title will also be on the line when Ibeth Zamora (32-6, 12 KOs) tales on Marlen Esparza (9-1, 1 KO). DAZN will feature an opening fight with undefeated welterweight Blair Cobbs (14-0-1, 9 KOs) and Brad Solomon (29-3, 9 KOs).
The four bouts on DAZN will begin at 1 p.m. with the Munguia-Szeremeta main event at approximately 4 p.m. After that bout, Golden Boy Promotions will feature six additional fights on Facebook Live. Seating capacity at the Don Haskins Center will be limited to only 4,000 and tickets are priced at $40, $60, $100, and $200.
