John Ryder on Canelo vs Jermell Charlo

Recently, in an interview with Fight Hub Tv, John Ryder shared his thoughts on Canelo vs Jermell Charlo and revealed who he thinks will win. “Yeah, he’s an aging fighter,” Ryder said, as quoted by “He’s had a lot of busy years.

2021 took a lot out of him, unifying the division and then the loss to Bivol and then the win over Golovkin. It was a good win, he beat him every round, but he looked a bit lackluster, he came back, had surgery on his wrist, and then came back against me.

He’s still the real deal, He still has a lot left to give. I’m sure he’ll come in fresh and look to cause the upset. I think it’ll be a cagey affair. I think Charlo will come out early and try and press forward, but he’ll realize that he’s not going to get away with that, throwing caution to the wind a bit and throwing less”.

Ryder further said: “I think Charlo has got a chance if he can take it to him up close and work way up close. “I was having a lot of success there [up close against Canelo], but I couldn’t sustain it. I think he’ll beat him well, Canelo.

I don’t know if he’ll stop him, but I’ll say he beats him wide on points”.
