Mexican boxing star Saul “Canelo” Alvarez will defend his undisputed super middleweight championship against British challenger John Ryder at the Akron Stadium in Guadalajara, Mexico on May 6th, live on DAZN Pay-Per-View.
Canelo (58-2-2, 39 KOs) is making his long awaited homecoming to Mexico, the boxing star hasn’t fought in his native country since 2011, this will be a huge moment for the multiple division champion. He will be a force to be reckon with on Saturday night and said the fans will motivate him to put on a top tier performance.
The man who is entering hostile territory is John Ryder, a southpaw who comes from London, England. Ryder (32-5, 18 KOs) is coming off a four fight win streak and has never won a world champion title, this will be the biggest opportunity of his career because an upset over Canelo would make him not only a first time champion but also an undisputed champion and it will go down in history as one of the greatest underdog victories of all time.
