How to watch Canelo vs Ryder online and on TV this weekend
Saul “Canelo” Alvarez will defend the undisputed super-middleweight titles against John Ryder in a Cinco de Mayo homecoming this weekend.
Alvarez, 32, last fought in September, retaining the belts against rival Gennady Golovkin with a points victory – a result that saw the Mexican bounce back from his first loss in nine years, a decision defeat by Dmitry Bivol.
Meanwhile, Ryder will look to upset the odds in front of what is sure to be a hostile crowd in Guadalajara.
The Briton, 34, last competed in November, stopping Zach Parker to make it four wins in a row and secure the WBO interim world title.
