The dominant display from Jaime Munguia makes his record 43-0 with 34 knockouts. It has potentially set up a fight against the iconic Canelo Alvarez. In the post-fight interview, Munguia called out Canelo to give him a shot, expressing, “It would be my honor to share the ring with him. It would be a great fight between two great Mexicans.”

In a poignant moment, John Ryder, the resilient almost-champion, faced a potential career-ending bout with a hint at retirement if defeated. Known for his durability against top contenders like Callum Smith, Rocky Fielding, Billy Joe Saunders, and Canelo Alvarez, Ryder showcased unwavering determination. Despite being knocked down four times, he relentlessly stood until trainer Tony Sims intervened. If this marks Ryder’s farewell, he exits as a warrior deserving of admiration.
