PhilBoxing.com





MUNGUIA VS. INOUE TAKES PLACE SATURDAY, JAN. 26, 2019 AT TOYOTA CENTER IN HOUSTON, TEXAS AND STREAMED LIVE ON DAZN


HOUSTON (Jan. 23, 2019): Mexican warrior Jaime Munguia (31-0, 26 KOs) and Japanese contender Takeshi Inoue (13-0-1, 7 KOs) hosted a media workout today at The Knockout Factory in Houston, Texas ahead of their 12-round battle for Munguia's WBO Junior Middleweight World Title. The action will take place on Saturday, Jan. 26 at the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas and will be streamed live on DAZN - which is just $9.99 per month after a one-month free trial. Fans in Houston can purchase tickets starting at just $25 at ToyotaCenter.com.

Undercard fighters from the event also participated in the workout. Below is what today's participants had to say at today's workout:

JAIME MUNGUIA, WBO Junior Middleweight World Champion:
"I'm really happy to be here in Houston and happy to see how they treat me here. I'm ready to defend my title and give a great fight to my fans. Thanks for your support and I hope to give you a great show this Saturday."

"There's a lot of competition at 154 pounds. I'm willing to fight all of them. I'm happy to start the year off early. I fight when I'm told to fight, so I'm glad that I'm already fighting in January. If they put four fights in front of me for this year, then I'll fight four times. I'm happy to be with the two best promoters of the world, Golden Boy and Zanfer promotions. I thank them for all the support they give me."

TAKESHI INOUE, Junior Middleweight Contender:
"I've always idolized the U.S. since I was little and coming here, seeing the environment and food, I was born to fit into this environment. The jet lag is gone and everything is back to normal and I feel good. I'm in good shape. In the U.S., the focus on the fighters from media and fight fans are stronger than in Japan but what doesn't change is my desire to win the fight and I'm going to keep that the same. I'm ready for Saturday's fight."

JESUS ROJAS, WBA Featherweight World Champion:
"Xu Can is a great fighter and I was very happy to have another opportunity to defend my title. There will be fireworks at the ring this Saturday night."

XU CAN, Featherweight Contender:
"I am very excited for Saturday. I was training for 10 days in Miami and feel good. I'm excited and eager to win a fight for my Chinese fans."

VERGIL ORTIZ JR., Super Lightweight Contender:
"I'm very excited because I haven't fought since September. I kept training, though. I only took a week off and went back to the gym. It's an honor to be promoted by Oscar De La Hoya. He has opened a lot of opportunities for me. I hope to be a world champion by the end of the year or earlier next year."

"What makes me different from other fighters is that I work hard every day, even if I don't have a fight lined up. I'm always ready. A knockout would be great. But as long as I long as I look good and I get some experience, I'll be happy."

ALEX RINCON, Super Welterweight Prospect:
"Training camp went great! I did some good sparring and I felt fast, I got a lot of work in. I sparred with Lamont Peterson and did really good work. It feels great to be in Houston, anywhere in Texas feels like home. We have a huge fan crowd and I can't wait for Saturday night."

GEORGE RINCON, Super Lightweight Prospect:
"Training camp started in Texas, and it went really well. We finished in DC with Lamont Roach Sr. My weight's good, I'm feeling strong. Houston feels like home. We have lots of family and friends. It feels great to be here, and we want to thank everyone for coming out, and especially to Golden Boy for having me and my brother here."
