John Ryder Eyes Career Resurgence with Jaime Munguia Clash

After thirteen years in the professional boxing circuit, 35-year-old John Ryder from London is gearing up for a pivotal match against Jaime Munguia in Phoenix on January 27th. Understanding the strategy behind Munguia's camp choosing him as an opponent, Ryder sees this fight as a crucial step in his quest for a successful 2024.

Ryder's last bout in May against Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez, where he faced a defeat but earned respect for his performance despite battling through a broken nose, has given him a newfound confidence. He believes that the experience of sharing the ring with 'Canelo' has made him a better fighter and is eager to demonstrate his growth against Munguia.

Reflecting on the upcoming fight, Ryder shared,

"There’s a lot to take from it [the fight with ‘Canelo’]. I still believe I came away a winner. I took a lot of credit from that fight. I learned a lot about myself and feel like I’ll be a better fighter for that fight. I wish I’d had it ten years ago."

Looking ahead, Ryder has ambitious plans for 2024, aiming for a busy year with significant victories. If successful against Munguia, Ryder anticipates a range of potential high-profile opponents, including a rematch with 'Canelo,' a showdown with Billy Joe Saunders, or a clash with Chris Eubank Jr. He even expressed interest in facing the likes of Gennady Golovkin, showing his eagerness for challenging matchups.

With his sights set on a triumphant return to the UK and the possibility of international fights, Ryder is determined to make 2024 the best year of his career, fueled by the confidence gained from his past experiences in the ring.
