Ryder confident he can spoil a possible Canelo party for rising boxer Munguia

John Ryder appears confident he can spoil Jaime Munguia's desired Canelo party, and said a rematch against Saul Alvarez is a "dream" fight of his own.

"Everyone is beatable," he told ProBox TV recently, unfazed at Munguia's unbeaten record.

Ryder takes on Munguia atop a Golden Boy Promotions event on January 27, live on DAZN from the Footprint Center in Phoenix, Arizona.

Though Munguia is yet to taste defeat, he is yet to truly be tested. His biggest win to date is a Fight of the Year candidate over Sergiy Derevyanchenko who had lost four of his last six fights heading into the Munguia match last summer.

Ryder, meanwhile, has been in the ring with Callum Smith, Daniel Jacobs, and Canelo in recent years.

The British challenger is hoping his experience on the big stage can see him claim victory on Saturday, and told us that "his plan" is to scupper Munguia and Golden Boy's desire to box Canelo, by going on a run himself that could, perhaps, score himself a rematch with Alvarez himself.

"I want to keep my career progressing the right way and a win here does that for me," he told ProBox TV.

"Otherwise, questions will start being asked. 'Where do you go from here?' I'm not ready to give up yet. I love this sport. I give a lot of time to this sport, sacrifice, and it's about getting my just rewards and taking the best fights possible."

He told ProBox TV and other reporters that nothing specific stands out when it comes to Munguia's skillset, and believes he's "the man" to inflict a maiden L on his opponent's career.

Ryder has fought in Austria and Miami and said it "was great to travel to those places. I was fortunate enough to fight elsewhere which is nice. We go where the fights are. I hoped my career would go to the States, and it's happened."

Now, having already boxed once in Vegas — against Bilal Akkawy on the Canelo-Jacobs undercard, he's back in the US, trained in Los Angeles, and fights in Phoenix at the weekend, following in the footsteps of guys like Carl Froch, Ricky Hatton, and James DeGale as British fighters who scored some of the most memorable nights of their career in the States.

"Hopefully I do the same," he said, "keep winning and perhaps return to Vegas," too, he said.

"I've been to the depths and desperation of boxing," he said. "And the only way is up."
