Szeremeta reportedly steps in against Munguia on June 19

Fighting

The boxing world basically revolved around Floyd Mayweather vs. Logan Paul last weekend, allowing some interesting news to slip through the cracks. For instance, Julius Julianis reported on Saturday that former middleweight title challenger Kamil Szeremeta is set to replace countryman Maciej Sulecki against Jaime Munguia on June 19th.

Fightnews’ and Polsat Sport’s Przemek Garczarczyk added that there was a verbal agreement in place, though the two sides had yet to put pen to paper.

Szeremeta (21-1, 5 KO) built his résumé on the European circuit, most notably winning and twice defending the EBU title en route to securing top IBF contender status. This earned him a crack at Gennadiy Golovkin, who pounded him into submission last December in brutal fashion. Though unquestionably a step back from the likes of Sulecki, he’s still a very solid replacement given the limited time available, and it’s not like Munguia (36-0, 29 KO) is some flawless fighter.

At the very least, it should give some of the lower-effort pundits the opportunity to compare Munguia and Golovkin based on their respective efforts against a mutual opponent.
