David Lemiuex vs John Ryder could be in the works at Super-middleweight

Former IBF middleweight champion, David Lemieux will possibly face top-rated super-middleweight John Ryder , on the undercard of Canelo-Jacobs.

Lemieux (40-4, 34KO) seems to always be close or around about title contention and this fight isn’t different. When you break it down that’s exactly what is happening in this situation.

The Canadian born fighter will be fighting at super-middleweight for the first time in his career.  However, a title fight against WBA #1 rated Canelo Alvarez is a possibility at middleweight. A match with the unified champion is simply a Golden Boy Promotions decision away.

Ryder (27-4, 15KO) is a former middleweight contender that has competed at the super-middleweight division since 2017.

The British born boxer is coming off a three-fight win streak, all by knockout. His wins include high profile victories over Jaime Cox and undefeated Andrey Sirotkin.  Its also worth noting he’s rated #1 by the WBA; meaning the winner could possibly see a title opportunity in the near future.


Lemiuex is currently the WBC International middleweight champion and has never lost a fight at the T-Mobile arena.

Ryder is a former IBF International Super-middleweight champion. If this fight happens, he will be fighting outside of the U.K for the first time.

A victory for the Canadian keeps him close to a title fight within two divisions against Canelo, provided a victory over Jacobs on May 4th.

Although nothing has been confirmed, its not out of the realm of possibility that this fight can be made.
