The pair will compete for the undisputed tremendous middleweight strap on DAZN pay-per-view, whereas additionally going head-to-head with UFC 288 throughout a blockbuster night of sports activities.

That features Billie Joe Saunders and Callum Smith. Earlier than that, you’re speaking about Ryan Rhodes and Matthew Hatton. Amir Khan was making a gift of manner an excessive amount of weight.”

Opposite to what the betting odds reveal, Groves mentioned that Ryder’s probabilities of an upset are higher than folks understand.

“If Ryder is to win this combat, he’s going to want a excessive output and a giant quantity of punches,” Groves mentioned. “He’s going to should try to dominate the rounds. You’re then considering if he can’t cease Alvarez, getting a factors resolution in Mexico goes to be robust and he gained’t need to go away it too shut. I believe the sport plan from John Ryder must be; come out, begin quick, be aggressive and attempt to field off that entrance foot and again Alvarez up.”
