Erik ‘terrible’ Morales, the head trainer of Munguia, believes the younger fighter can go to the subsequent stage. Morales, a hall of Famer and former 4 division world champion, might see his boxer heading as much as the next degree.
In his final battle, Munguia withstood a fierce attack from Tureano Johnson – to win the battle with an incredible uppercut that snapped the backside lip of Johnson in half .
“[Morales] has helped me an awful lot to wait and see, to stay calm throughout the second of a combat. under different conditions, against an opponent like Tureano Johnson, i’d have thrown myself into a scuffle to trade punches unless his head became blown off, with an uncomfortable opponent,” Munguia pointed out.
