LAST week we
discovered British light-heavyweight Anthony Yarde is being considered as a
potential opponent for Mexican superstar Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez, while
today another British boxer has emerged as a name on the Canelo shortlist.
John Ryder, last seen giving Callum Smith all he could handle in
a WBA super-middleweight title fight, could apparently end up getting the plum
role every fighter between middleweight and light-heavyweight yearns for, if
Canelo’s coach, Eddy Reynoso, is to be believed.
When asked about
potential opponents, Reynoso mentioned Ryder’s name alongside the likes of
Smith, Gennady Golovkin and Billy Joe Saunders, and praised the Londoner’s
spirited effort against Smith a couple of weeks ago. Ryder, meanwhile, when
getting wind of this, wasted no time offering his services.
