Munguia stops Johnson after nasty cut

Jaime Munguia made his return in the ring defending his WBO Intercontinental Middleweight Championship against Tureano Johnson and came out victorious in front a the crowd-less arena at the Fantasy Springs Casino, in Indo, California by stoppage after six rounds.

The broadcast of this contest closed out the Golden Boy Promotions card that was aired on the streaming service DAZN.

The opening round of this one was interesting and a throwback one for a typicalJohnson fight where he was the aggressor and was landing his short left hand often and frequently. This seemed to be changed in favor of Munguia, as he was able to counter his attack and hand uppercuts whenever both would fight inside,

This also showed in the output as Munguia was able to land more successfully than Johnson, as well. While Johnson was losing the early rounds, he was able to attack the body of Munguia which seemed to have slowed him down as well. 

The sixth round bought this fun fight to a halt as a brutal cut from a right uppercut caused the nastiest gash on the lip on Johnson I have ever seen. It looked liked someone took a knife to his face and slashed. The doctors rightfully ended this fight after the round was over. The fight was ruled a knockout victory and the stoppage win for Munguia.

With this win for Munguia, we’ll see if this gets him one step closer to a mandatory shot at Demetrius Andrade, who has been challenging everyone under the sun and like many others are in the Canelo sweepstakes. That pending litigation will halt any of those talks for a while. The fight for Munguia was a tough one for him against Johnson and this test showed that he can still bang with all of them but seemed to be hit a lot often early on in this one.

Everybody has a plan until they get punched in the mouth is not only a quote by Mike Tyson, it's also a pretty good reminder to keep your guard up.
