Saul “Canelo” Àlvarez created another memorable Cinco de Mayo weekend memory and successful title defense with a unanimous decision win over Jaime Munguia in super middleweight action from T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

Àlvarez obviously came into the fight as the favorite, but Munguia showed in the first round he wasn’t going to be a starstruck punching bag. He was aggressive in the early rounds and got the attention of fans, analysts and his opponent:

Munguia learned that aggression against Àlvarez is a double-edged sword. It provided the avenue for success but it also put him on the mat in the fourth round, creating an inflection point in the championship bout.

Munguia’s cardio became a bigger plotline as the fight progressed through the middle rounds. His combination punching was giving Canelo some issues, but his output started to wane as rounds wore on.

Meanwhile, Canelo continued to build up steam. The superstar took everything his opponent had to offer but his talent started to shine through. Many of Munguia’s punches were hitting the high guard of the champion while the champ’s punches were consistently hitting their mark.

And that was pretty much enough for the champ to win the fight.
