Saul “Canelo” Alvarez takes on John Ryder in Mexico tonight, jeopardizing the undisputed super middleweight titles Cinco de Mayo Weekend.
Alvarez, 32, recovered from his first defeat in nine years – a points loss to Dmitry Bivol – by securing a decision win over Gennady Golovkin in September. With this win, the Mexican retained his undisputed titles, which he will now defend against Ryder in Guadalajara.
Last time out, 34-year-old Briton Zach Parker stopped to become interim WBO champion. Now, six months later, he faces his toughest test to date.
