Jaime Munguia will be the heavy betting favorite when he enters the ring against veteran Gabriel Rosado in what is expected to be a Fight of the Year-caliber bout on November 13th at Anaheim’s Honda Center.

According to the best boxing betting sites, Munguia is the -1100 favorite while Rosado is the +600 betting underdog in the 12-round DAZN promoted bout:

This marks the 7th time in his last nine bouts where Munguia has opened as the favorite of at least +1000. In his most recent bout, the 25-year old from Tijuana, Mexico opened as a -3000 betting favorite against Kamil Szeremeta and closed at -5000. He won that fight via 6th round TKO.

Munguia Calls Out Rosado

Munguia is undefeated in 37 bouts with 30 knockouts. He won the WBO light-middleweight title with a fourth-round TKO of Sadam Ali on May 12, 2018. Munguia made five successful title defenses before moving up in weight last year. He stopped Gary O’Sullivan in 11 rounds during his middleweight debut and followed up that performance with a TKO victory over former WBO silver middleweight champion Taureano Johnson before facing Szeremeta.

Following his win over Szeremeta, Munguia was asked during the post-fight interview what he wanted to do next. Without hesitation, the rising Mexican boxing star called out Gabriel Rosado who scored a huge upset win one fight earlier in the co-main event of the fight card.

The call-out was a big surprise since the Mexican is currently the no. 1 ranked middleweight in the WBC and WBO and he could’ve asked to fight either WBC champion Jermall Charlo or WBO titleholder Demetrius Andrade. Instead, he chose to call out a dangerous opponent who had just knocked out an unbeaten prospect with his devastating one-punch knockout power.

Rosado Upsets Bek “The Bully”

Rosado opened as a +600 betting underdog and closed as an even longer +1500 bottom dog when he fought unbeaten Uzbek Olympic Silver Medalist Bektemir Melikuziev in the co-main event of Munguia vs Szeremeta.

Early on, it looked like the oddsmakers were correct. Rosado took a knee in Round 1 after a barrage of punches from Melikuziev. But the veteran was not rattled and he weathered the early storm. Rosado got stronger as the fight went longer and he ended up knocking out the previously unbeaten Melikuziev inside three rounds in one of the biggest boxing betting upsets of 2021.

The 35-year old Rosado is just 5-8-1 with one no-contest in his last 14 bouts. The losses included a failed world title challenge against Gennady Golovkin in 2013. Rosado lost that bout via 7th round TKO and that started a downward trend in his pro boxing career. Overall, Rosado has a record of 26-13 with 15 knockouts.
