Canelo Alvarez

Canelo Alvarez successfully makes weight for his first match in 11 years on Mexican soil, facing John Ryder

A highly anticipated event is about to take place as Canelo Alvarez prepares to defend his undisputed championship title against John Ryder at Estadio Akron in Guadalajara, Mexico. Canelo’s return to his home country after almost a decade has generated an immense amount of excitement among fans, who are eager to witness their hero in action.

The weigh-ins on Friday saw the champion registering 167.5 pounds, while the challenger weighed in at 168 pounds. The stakes are high, as Canelo’s WBA, WBC, IBF, WBO, and The Ring super middleweight titles will be up for grabs in the main event on Saturday.

Canelo’s (58-2-2, 39 KOs) previous fight resulted in a unanimous decision win over his rival Gennady Golovkin. The victory was crucial for Canelo as it helped him rebound from a decision loss to Dmitry Bivol, costing him the WBA super light heavyweight title. He has had an impressive run lately, having won nine of his last ten fights.

Meanwhile, John Ryder will be entering the ring for his second shot at the super middleweight title, as he previously challenged Callum Smith for the WBA title in November 2019. Despite losing to Smith, Ryder has bounced back with four consecutive victories, making him the interim WBO champion and mandatory challenger.

On Saturday, fans will get to witness an enthralling match where both fighters will undoubtedly bring their best to the ring. Apart from the main event featuring Canelo and Ryder, the night is jam-packed with other exciting matches featuring talented boxers like Julio Cesar Martinez, Oleksandr Gvozdyk, and Gabriel Gollaz Valenzuela.

Stay tuned for more updates on the event, but for now, let’s gear up for an unforgettable night of world-class boxing.
