It’s fight week and all eyes will be on the undisputed super middleweight title fight between unified king Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez (58-2-2) and John Ryder (32-5). The bout will emanate from Estadio Akron in Guadalajara, Mexico on May 6.
Canelo was last seen inside the boxing ring back in September 2022. He took on Gennady Golovkin in a trilogy fight. The Mexican megastar emerged victorious via unanimous decision. It was a nice win for Canelo, who was beaten by Dmitry Bivol just four months earlier.
As for Ryder, this will be the biggest fight of his pro boxing career. Wins over Mike Guy, Jozef Jurko, Daniel Jacobs, and Zach Parker led Ryder to this opportunity. “The Gorilla” is riding a four-fight winning streak and hasn’t suffered a defeat since his November 2019 unanimous decision loss to Callum Smith.
