Boxing returns to the Alexandra Palace on Saturday night as John Ryder and Daniel Jacobs serve up a potential 12-round classic at super-middleweight. The stacked card brought to you courtesy of Eddie Hearn and Matchroom Boxing features a whole host of British fighters, not least Ryder, who is desperate to move closer towards another world-title shot.
The Gorilla boxed brilliantly against Callum Smith in Liverpool in late 2019 but it was Mundo who prevailed on the scorecards before later earning a shot at pound-for-pound great Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez.
Ryder has since bounced back impressively though, recording wins on the road in Las Vegas and Austria against Mike Guy and Jozef Jurko.
Standing before him tonight is ‘The Miracle Man’, who has tasted defeat just three times in his 40-fight professional career.
Jacobs has previously held both the WBA and IBF middleweight world titles but lost his belts when looking to unify the division against Gennadiy Golovkin (2017) and Canelo in (2019).
The defeat to the Mexican has prompted Jacobs to move up and have a crack at super-middle, as he looks to become a two-weight world champion.
Essex sensation Johnny Fisher, also known as The Romford Bull, has sold close to 3000 tickets for the show.
The heavyweight prospect is expected to be the chief support to Ryder vs Jacobs when he takes on Gabriel Enguema.
Felix Cash also takes on Magomed Madiev – a fight expected to catch fire – while Ellie Scotney, Hopey Price and American prodigy Ammo Williams are also in action.
