Jaime Munguia vs. John Ryder undercard: Complete list of fights before main event in 2024 boxing match

Jaime Munguia and John Ryder will put their ambitions to reach the top of the super middleweight division on the line when they face off in an intriguing clash at Phoenix’s Footprint Center on Saturday, January 27.

Both men produced standout performances in contrasting circumstances in 2023.

Ryder (32-6, 18 KOs) was selected as Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez’s dance partner for the Mexican sensation’s homecoming fight in Guadalajara. Although the Briton was decked in round five en route to dropping a wide unanimous decision, his display of incredible guts and bravery won countless new admirers.

The 35-year-old’s new-found popularity within the Mexican fight fraternity no doubt played a role in him being selected as the next opponent for Munguia (42-0, 33 KOs).

Long-viewed as the next big thing from Oscar De La Hoya’s Golden Boy stable, Munguia’s career appeared in danger of stagnating completely before he prevailed against the well-schooled Ukrainian Sergiy Derevyanchenko in a Fight of the Year contender.

Munguia vs. Ryder tops a stacked card in Arizona, which will air on DAZN. Here’s a rundown of who else will be trading leather.

Jaime Munguia vs. John Ryder undercard 

Oscar Collazo vs. Reyneris Gutierrez

  • Division/Weight: Minimumweight
  • Collazo record: 8-0 (6 KOs)
  • Gutierrez record: 10-1 (2 KOs)
  • Belts at stake: WBO minimumweight

Collazo makes the second defence of his 105 lbs title, with his previous three victories all having come inside the distance.

Gutierrez is not a man to boast such decisive power, with the Nicaraguan’s most recent stoppage coming back in 2021. If Collazo can get the job done, a step up to a stacked light flyweight division might appeal.

Gabriela Fundora. vs. Christina Cruz

  • Division/Weight: Flyweight
  • Fundora record: 12-0 (5 KOs) 
  • Cruz record: 6-0 (0 KOs)
  • Belts at stake: IBF flyweight

The other world title action on the card comes in the form of Fundora’s maiden IBF flyweight defence against fellow undefeated American Cruz.

At 21, Fundora is 20 years younger than her opponent and another explosive showing could bring an undisputed showdown with the great Marlen Esparza into view. That showdown should be relatively easy to make given both fighters are under the Golden Boy banner.

Alan Picasso Romero vs. Erik Ruiz

  • Division/Weight: Super bantamweight
  • Romero record: 26-0-1 (15 KOs)
  • Ruiz record: 17-9-1 (7 KOs)
  • Belts at stake: N/A

Mexican prospect Romero is on an impressive run of eight consecutive stoppages. The 23-year-old will be expected to make short work of Ruiz, who has lost four of his previous five.

Darius Fulghum vs. Alantez Fox

  • Division/Weight: Super middleweight
  • Fulghum record: 9-0 (9 KOs)
  • Fox record: 28-5-1 (13 KOs)
  • Belts at stake: WBA Inter-Continental

Hot prospect Fulghum gets a title at a first piece of professional hardware against the experienced Fox, who has tangled with the likes of Demetrius Andrade and David Morrell.

Defeat to Morrell inside four rounds began an ongoing run of three consecutive defeats for the 31-year-old Fox, who was stopped in similarly quick time by Bektemir Melikuziev last time out.

Fulghum is looking to move quickly at 168 lbs, having brought his punching power down after campaigning at heavyweight as an amateur. The form book only points one way in this one.
