Prediction,

Good match.
This is an interesting fight, Ali vs Smith was going to be great, but unfortunately, Smith got injured, nobody's fault, but I don't think this is by any means one of those disappointing situations where they get a replacement, and the opponent isn't up to much, the fight gets demoted, not at all.

Jaime Munguia is untested, very young (certainly not in his prime yet), but he is 28-0, which says a lot in itself. Munguia has been a professional for 4-5 years, and with 28 fights, general professional experience isn't something he lacks at all, he is 21, and unknown, so his opposition can't have been great, but you wouldn't expect him to have already fought good opponents. Experience at even near to this level is not something Munguia has, his opposition isn't necessarily poor, most of his opponents have had winning records, but last year, he fought 7 times, he has fought twice this year already, which is great on the activity front, but shows you a lot about the significance of his past fights. Munguia has knocked out 24 of his 28 past opponents, that is a good stoppage rate, and in his last fight, he beat Johnny Navarrete, handing him his 12th defeat, 3rd stoppage defeat, in 2016, he stopped Alvaro Robles in 5 rounds, an opponent who lasted longer against Kell Brook. I think we can say Munguia can really punch. Munguia has competed at 140 before, so he isn't big for the weight, in the other hand, he started pro as a kid, so was bound to move up the weights, he has fought at middleweight a few times, as well as light middle, so 154 isn't new to him. This is a great chance for Munguia to make a name for himself, as long as he doesn't take a beating, it could be the making of him as a fighter, he seems to have a lot of talent, but needs to learn at a higher level, he has plenty of time, but this is a great opportunity, he has a decent chance, I'm sure he will try his best.

Sadam Ali has always been spoken about highly in the boxing world, but never convinced the wider public with his wins, not until the Cotto fight. I thought Ali beating Cotto (even with Cotto being old and so far past his prime) was a huge upset, but a lot of people who know Sadam Ali, were not so surprised. Ali is second best known for his only career defeat, that was against Jessie Vargas, he was stopped in 9 rounds, but many people have told people not to judge him as a fighter based on that fight. Against Cotto, Ali was great, he moved well, he capitalised when he hurt Cotto, but he didn't make silly mistakes, he has very good variety, he is a solid fighter. We can't really say how much of the Cotto fight was a case of Cotto being so old and faded, and how much of it was about Ali being underrated, it was a combination of both, but what was it more to do with?, that raises the question of how good Ali is, well if he comes through this fight, it would be interesting to see him in a unification fight. It is easy to see why you might think Ali isn't on Charlo and Hurd's level, and he is the weak link amongst the champions, but so many people would probably warn the other champions that Ali is a threat, and old or not, he joined Pacquiao, Mayweather, Canelo in beating Cotto, I'm not convinced Ali is as good as Charlo or Hurd, but I could be wrong, and he is very much in the mix at the top of the division, but Ali has to come through Munguia first, he should not overlook him.

I think Ali wins this, I think UD, I don't think this will be an extremely one sided fight, but I don't think it will be necessarily close either. I think the fight will be competitive, but the difference in world level experience will be clear to see, and Ali will win the fight comfortably.

Jaime was the real deal. Would have much rather seen him last week vs. GGG. Looks like he is every bit as big.

Anybody got a link for the Rey Vargas-Hovhannisyan fight...cant find it anywhere?

Not yet, but I bet it will be on by the end of the week. I watched live.
