The last step before Saturday’s war was completed by Daniel Jacobs and John Ryder. Both stepped on the scales on Friday and made weight for their World Boxing Association (WBA) super middleweight eliminator fight. 

Jacobs, who will step into the ring for the first time since 2020, stopped the scale at 166.9 pounds and Ryder weighed 167 pounds, both below the 168-pound limit required by the division, and now they are set to go head-to-head at the Alexandra Palace in the English capital. 

It will be a showdown between two fighters who have a clear objective and that is to get a new title opportunity. Although Jacobs, 35, seems to have an advantage in terms of fights and opponents, Ryder also has a good record and the advantage of being at home for this important fight. 

The “Miracle Man” comes with a record of 37 wins, 3 losses and 30 knockouts. In Ryder’s case, his record is 30 wins, 5 losses, and 17 fights decided by the fast track.
