Canelo vs Ryder Preview

This fight will be a homecoming of sorts for Alvarez, who hasn’t fought in his home land of Mexico since 2011. Twelve years is a long time, and he will be defending his WBA (Super), WBC, IBF and WBO super middleweight titles to boot.

“It is special after 12 years and everything I have achieved to return to my land as the best and be able to offer this experience,” Alvarez said, according to the Washington Post. “I feel happy and grateful to the people because they saw me grow here and now coming back as the best in the world and giving the fight is an honor for me.”

Alvarez is the heavy favorite, but that’s not deterring his challenger. “I think this is the silver lining of my career. I’ve had ups and downs, I’ve taken the knocks,” Ryder told DAZN. “I think this fight has come at the right time, the best mentally and physically I could ever be. I’m really looking forward to it.”

“He’s still well up there as one of the pound-for-pound currently, not just that, he’s one of the best of our generation, so in the shortlist of the top five,” Ryder added. “He’s still dangerous and there’s still maybe the best of him to come. Heading to Vegas on April 20th, two weeks beforehand. One week in Vegas then to Guadalajara. Final few days, sharpen the tools. It’s gonna be good, we’re gonna have a good crowd out there.”
