Canelo is the undisputed champion

Canelo Alvarez is considered one of the best boxers of his generation, with numerous world titles in multiple weight classes.

He has also been ranked as the pound-for-pound best boxer in the world, and his skills have earned him a massive following of fans.

In his last fight, Canelo defeated Billy Joe Saunders to add the WBO super-middleweight title to his impressive collection of championship belts.

His record and reputation make him an intimidating opponent for any boxer, including John Ryder.

John Ryder's recent victories

John Ryder is no slouch either, with a recent win against Mike Guy in January 2021. Prior to that, he gave Callum Smith a tough fight in 2019, with many feeling he should have been declared the winner.

Although Ryder's record is not as impressive as Canelo's, he is known for his toughness and ability to give his opponents a run for their money.

With Canelo's impressive record and Ryder's reputation as a tough opponent, the fight promises to be an exciting matchup.

While Canelo is expected to earn significantly more than Ryder, it is worth noting that purses in boxing are often based on a variety of factors, including a fighter's record, popularity, and overall reputation.

Hearn's take

"Actually, I think it's great," promoter Eddie Hearn said on the purse.

"Saul has got a lot of money, so that's (a factor). but it's still quite unusual.

"I've not really seen a lot of fighters that would take a lot less to do it at home.

"The first round (of offers), it was already much more (than Guadalajara).

"And then when we went back and said, 'No,' it kept going up. And I kept going back, and in the end, (Alvarez) told me to stop. 'Stop. Shut up. We're doing it.'"
