John Ryder is a British professional boxer, born on May 21, 1988, in Islington, London, England. With a professional career that has spanned over a decade, Ryder has established himself as a formidable fighter in the super-middleweight division.
Ryder began his professional boxing journey on September 10, 2010, against Ben Deghani when he was just 22 years old. He won the fight via first-round TKO and went on to win 14 more consecutive fights, eight of which were through stoppages.
Although Ryder has not had much success in world title fights, he has had numerous notable victories throughout his career. One such victory happened on February 12, 2022, when he beat the American boxer, Daniel Jacobs via a 12th round split-decision victory.
The fight against Daniel Jacobs was a very close affair with Ryder just managing to edge out a victory. Ryder dominated the early rounds, but Jacobs came back strong in the middle rounds, causing problems for Ryder. However, Ryder regained control towards the later rounds, throwing excellent combinations, and connecting with hard punches. The victory over Jacobs proved his ability to go toe-to-toe with elite fighters in the division.
Another noteworthy victory in Ryder's career was against Bilal Akkawy on May 4, 2019. The fight was for the interim WBA super-middleweight title, and Ryder won via a unanimous decision victory. Ryder displayed his superior boxing skills, outboxing and outpunching Akkawy throughout the fight, which secured his victory.
Although Ryder has had some notable victories throughout his career, he has also had some losses. His first career loss came against Billy Joe Saunders on September 21, 2013. Saunders won the fight via a unanimous decision victory, ending Ryder's 15-fight unbeaten record. Ryder has lost four more times since then, but only one of them was via knockout.
Ryder's most recent fight was on November 26, 2022, against fellow British boxer, Zach Parker. The fight was a non-title bout, and it ended in a fifth-round TKO victory for Ryder. Throughout the fight, Ryder dominated Parker with his strong jab and powerful right-handed punches. The victory against Parker propelled Ryder to a four-fight winning streak and has given him the confidence to take on bigger challenges in his career.
Ryder's next fight will be the biggest fight of his career when he takes on one of the best boxers in the world, Canelo Álvarez, on May 6, 2023. The fight will be a massive challenge for Ryder, but he is confident that he can cause an upset.
Álvarez is a dominant force in boxing, with a professional record of 57 wins, two losses, and two draws. He is a four-division world champion and has won titles in the light-middleweight, middleweight, super-middleweight, and light-heavyweight divisions. Ryder will be up against a fighter who is at the top of his game, but he has been training hard and is determined to pull off a shock victory.
Ryder will need to utilize his superior boxing skills to beat Álvarez. He will need to be quick on his feet, avoid Álvarez's powerful punches, and use his quickness to land his own punches. Ryder has the ability to outbox Álvarez, and if he can stay focused and not get caught up in Álvarez's tactics, he could come out on top.
In conclusion, John Ryder has had an excellent professional boxing career so far, with 32 wins and five losses. Although he has not won a world title yet, he has shown that he has the ability to compete at the highest level with his notable victories over Daniel Jacobs, Bilal Akkawy, and Zach Parker. Ryder's next challenge is his biggest yet, facing one of the best boxers in the world in Canelo Álvarez. However, Ryder is a fighter who thrives on challenges and is confident that he can cause an upset on May 6, 2023.
