The city of Guadalajara is decked out with the return of one of its prodigal sons, when Saúl ‘Canelo’ Álvarez puts the undisputed super middleweight championship on the line against the British John Ryder at the Akron stadium, in front of almost 50,000 people.
After 12 years of an intense career in the United States, Saúl Álvarez went from being a young promise to becoming the face of this sport, starring in great events against Floyd Mayweather Jr., Alfredo Angulo, Miguel Ángel Cotto, Julio César Chávez Jr., and Gennady Golovkin, among others and now, he will have the opportunity to shine before his audience.
Recovered from an operation on his hand and after a 2022 that had ups and downs, the tapatio has the table set for a spectacular return to those involved.
And although he looks like a strong favorite at home, the task will not be so simple, since in front of him he will have a Briton who wants to ruin any party and take the belts home. John Ryder, 34 years old and nicknamed “The Gorilla”, wants to redeem the path of British boxing, which in recent months has suffered painful falls against Mexicans, such as those achieved by Mauricio Lara and Luis López, and what better scenario than in the house of Álvarez Barragán.
Ryder, the current WBO interim super middleweight champion, comes into this brawl with four unbeaten fights, including most recently against Zach Parker and Daniel Jacobs, so the Brit knows what it’s like to come out with the underdog role and end with your hand up.
