Ryder: Hearn Let Golden Boy Know I'm Available For Canelo in September

Super middleweight contender John Ryder is hoping to get himself a crack at Mexican superstar Saul "Canelo" Alvarez in the fall.

Canelo is scheduled to return to the ring in September, with no opponent secured as a of yet.

Because there of the current COVID-19 restrictions which prevent live crowds, there won't be a boatload of money available for Canelo's next opponent.

Due to the financial limitations for Canelo's event, most of the world champions and top opponents have been ruled out.

Ryder has been out of the ring since losing a twelve round decision to WBA super middleweight champion Callum Smith in November 2019.

There were some observers who felt Ryder had done enough to defeat Smith in that contest - and Canelo's trainer, Eddy Reynoso, was one of those observers.

Prior to that, Ryder was showcased on Canelo's undercard in May of the same year, with a stoppage of Bilal Akkawy.

Eddie Hearn, who promotes Ryder, has already reached out to Canelo's handlers at Golden Boy Promotions and let them know that his boxer is physically ready to fight in September.

"I know Eddie put a text in to Golden Boy and said that we're available and so on and so forth," Ryder told Sky Sports. "There's a few names in the hat. Hopefully my name is at the top and it gets picked out.

"Listen, he's looking for an opponent, and I know the money is not there for these big shows. It's a chance in a lifetime, I'm up for it. I'm in the gym, I'm keeping fit, I've been keeping fit the whole lockdown. Give me the call and I'm more than ready to go."

Canelo has also been out of the ring since November, when he moved up by two weight classes to the light heavyweight and knocked out Sergey Kovalev for the WBO title. He later vacated the belt and announced his intention to move down in weight.
