Perhaps some casual boxing audiences don’t know who John Ryder is. The Brit will be Saul Alvarez’s opponent this Saturday night after several years of looking to face the Mexican and he wants to surprise.

Having been announced as the challenger to the undisputed super middleweight championship, everyone already knows him, but now he needs to make a good impression and a great performance. 

Ryder is a boxer who has proven to be tough and has always looked for the best opponents in any division he has fought in. However, he has had to fight to get the fight he wanted so badly. 

He has faced opponents like Daniel Jacobs, Billy Joe Saunders, Callum Smith, among other big names, and against all of them he has given good battles that have gone the distance. 

Perhaps the biggest fight of his career has been the victory over Jacobs, whom he defeated last year that has helped propel him this far. Ryder is a tough opponent who puts on a show and has only been knocked out once in his career. He fights toe to toe against any opponent, so he is expected to come out to put pressure on and look for the hard-fought victory. 

He comes in on a four-fight winning streak and hasn’t lost since 2019, so his confidence is at the highest level. However, he must fight the best in the division to win he must show a version superior to any other he’s had in his career.
