JAIME MUNGUIA signalled his arrival at middleweight when he halted a typically brave and tough Gary “Spike” O’Sullivan in the 11th round at San Antonio’s Alamodome.

The unbeaten Mexican relinquished his WBO super-welterweight strap so he could campaign at 160lbs, a division where opportunity awaits as long-term leaders, Canelo Alvarez, Gennady Golovkin and Daniel Jacobs, seemingly plot their futures in higher weight classes.

Some predicted an early win for 23-year-old Munguia, 35-0 (28), and they were nearly proved right when a searing left hook rocked the Irishman in the opening round.
