Jaime Munguia wants a belt. The undefeated Munguia (41-0, 33 KOs) is taking on Sergiy Derevyanchenko (14-4, 10 KOs) for the vacant WBC Silver super middleweight title this weekend, which he hopes will put him in line for some bigger title fights. Munguia has faced some backlash over his recent opponents' lack of pedigree. Derevyanchenko is a step in the right direction. He's a formal title challenger looking for his own belts. He's suffered four tough decision losses in his career, but they've been to tough opponents like Gennadiy "GGG" Golovkin and Jermall Charlo.

How to watch the Sunny Edwards vs Andres Campos live stream
A promotional poster showing Sunny Edwards, Andres Campos, and the undercard fighters.

It's a fantastic week to watch boxing. There are half a dozen fights this worth watching this week, and we start Saturday off with a card packed full of title fights. Sunny Edwards (19-0, 4 KOs) will defend his IBF World Flyweight belt in a match against Andres Campos (15-0, 4 KOs). Both Edwards and Campos are undefeated going into this fight. As they say, the O must go. This is Edwards' fourth defense of the belt since he won it from Moruti Mthalane in December of 2023. Neither man is a knockout artist, so we'll likely see some technical boxing sent to the judge's scorecards.

This is a stacked card. Besides Edwards vs Campos, we get two title fights on the undercard: Cherneka Johnson vs Ellie Scotney, as Johnson defends her IBF women's super bantamweight title, and Nina Hughes vs Katie Healy, as Hughes defends her WBA women's bantamweight title. If that isn't enough, we get a British cruiserweight title eliminator bout between Cheavon Clarke and Davis Jamieson. See the full undercard below.

Adrien "The Problem" Broner (34-4-1, 24KOs) is working on a comeback. He and his promoter Don King are staging a return bout with Bill Hutchinson (20-2-4, 9 KOs) at the Casino Miami Jai Alai in Miami, Florida this weekend. Broner has only fought once since his 2019 loss to Manny Pacquiao. That unanimous decision loss seemed to put the nail in the coffin of his career. Broner's previous two fights were a loss to Mikey Garcia and a draw to Jessie Vargas. Broner and King are hoping for an exciting, career-revitalizing fight that will get Broner some attention from bigger names in the division.
