Canelo Alvarez vs. Jaime Munguia purses, salaries: How much will they make for 2024 boxing fight?

Canelo Alvarez competes in a Mexico vs. Mexico showdown on May 4, defending his status as the undisputed super middleweight champion against Jaime Munguia. The clash will air on Amazon Prime and DAZN.

Canelo is a four-division champion, becoming undisputed at 168 inside eleven months. Since beating Caleb Plant to enhance his legacy, Canelo has gone 3-1 and is on a three-fight win streak. He outclassed Jermell Charlo in September to retain the belts and shows no signs of slowing down.

“Defending my undisputed title is very important for me,” Canelo said. “This is all about making history. I want my legacy to be that I made history again and again. That’s what motivates me to keep defending my belts and giving great fights to the fans.”

The 27-year-old Munguia is a prized Golden Boy Promotions signing. He has held super welterweight gold and he’s made an impact at middleweight and super middleweight. Munguia’s last two fights were statement-making wins against Sergiy Derevyanchenko and John Ryder, two former world title challengers.
