Perry and Rockhold Fight Preview:
As mentioned above, Canelo Alvarez is set to defend his undisputed Super Middleweight Championship (WBA, IBF, WBC & WBO) against interim WBO Super Middleweight Champion John Ryder in a 12-round bout.
Canelo turned pro in 2005 and has a 33-0-1 record in Mexico. He became the undisputed super-middleweight champion in 2021 but failed to secure light-heavyweight gold for a second time in his career as he lost to Dmitry Bivol last year in May, his first loss since 2013 against Floyd Mayweather.
Canelo’s last fight was in September last year when he won against Gennadiy Golovkin unanimously, ending the trilogy 2-0-1 in favor of him. Canelo is now returning following left wrist surgery. The fight against John Ryder will be the first time in more than a decade that he will be in action in Mexico, beating last Kermit Cintron via TKO inside Plaza de Toros in November 2011.
On the other hand, his opponent, John Ryder, turned pro in 2010 and won the interim WBA super-middleweight title against Bilal Akkawy in May 2019.
The Boxing PPV Quotes:
“There’s no denying that Canelo is one of the greats, and I’ve got a lot of respect for what he’s achieved in the sport, but I fully believe this is my time to fulfill my dream of becoming a World champion,”
“I’m not going over there for a holiday. For me, this is purely business, and my full focus is on going into his backyard in Guadalajara on May 6 and bringing those belts back with me to the U.K. I want to thank the team, Tony and Charlie Sims, and Matchroom Boxing for making this happen.”
“It’s a great opportunity that has not been gifted. I’ve worked hard at this for years. As you said, I’ve suffered the highs, the lows, and the bottom of the barrel. Thank you, Saul and Eddie, for making this fight happen.
“We’re all in big fights, and Tony’s been a rock in my career and brought me back from the bottom and believed in me when I didn’t believe in myself, and I thank him for that. I also thank the family and friends, you, Charlie, for always sticking by me and livening me up.”
“Down to my mum and dad, my partner, and you know what, down to myself because if I give up on myself, I won’t be here. I’ve dug deep, I’ve done what I’ve had to do, I’ve worked hard to get back into this mandatory position, took the right fights at the right times, and I’m just really pleased to be here.”
“The decision went against us in 2019, then the Covid times hit, which messed everything up, but like you say, and I truly believe, timing is everything in this sport. It waits for no man, but the timing is right for me now.”
“I’m not here for a holiday, and I wouldn’t bring the team with me, have the team around me that I have if I didn’t believe I could win. I’m going, leaving no stone unturned, putting everything in this camp, and truly believe I can come away victorious on May 6.”
“I want to thank the team, Tony and Charlie Sims, and Matchroom Boxing for making this happen.”
“I feel really happy to be coming back in May because following my surgery, I was unsure of when I’d be coming back,”
“Returning to the ring and returning to fight in Jalisco, where I’m from, makes me especially happy. And in John Ryder, I’m facing a very competitive fighter.”
“The press conference in Guadalajara was an unbelievable moment for me because I saw my grandma, my dad, my mom, my brothers, my family there. A lot of media guys I saw when I started boxing.
“For me, I feel very proud and happy to bring this fight to Guadalajara and give the people some of the experience I have in other places as the best in the world.”
“I think it’s the perfect time. A long time ago, I wanted to fight in Guadalajara, but I think this is the perfect moment, the perfect fight to bring to Guadalajara.”
“I’m so excited to show everybody they’re wrong. I feel very good. I have a lot of years in my career, 17 years as a pro. I’ve had injuries too. I’m not at my best, but I’m very motivated, and I’m very happy to be in the gym, to train at 100 per cent, and they’re going to see what is coming. I’m very excited and motivated.”
“Ryder has everything to win, nothing to lose, right? He’s always there, fighting with the good fighters trying to get that opportunity, and now he got it. It will be a danger for me, but I feel good.”
“It will surely be one of the best moments in my career. The fight with Billy Joe Saunders in Dallas was amazing, one of the most enjoyable fights I’ve ever been in. I think in Guadalajara; it will be the same or even more.”
