Endred criticized Alvarez for choosing his next opponent


Former world middleweight champion American Demetrius Andrade (31-0, 19 KOs) criticized the upcoming fight of the Mexican absolute champion of the super middleweight division (up to 76.2 kg) Canelo Alvarez (58-2-2, 39 KOs) against the owner of the “temporary” British WBO title John Ryder (31-5, 17 KOs), which, if Canelo’s recovery from surgery on his injured hand goes according to doctors’ forecasts, will take place in early May, presumably in the UK.

Endred has nothing against Ryder, but reproaches Alvarez for choosing a passing opponent.

Note that Andred could himself become the “interim” WBO champion at 76.2 kg, but last year he refused to fight against Zach Parker because of an unsatisfactory fee for him. As a result, Ryder entered the ring against Parker, won and became the mandatory challenger for Canelo.

“More shit, bro,” Demetrius replied when asked what he thought of the Alvarez-Ryder fight. “Shit, as it is. I just call a spade a spade and this is another easy fight (for Alvarez). Another reason for him to go out and win and say, “I fight the best.” No disrespect to Ryder, but kamon, he’s not the best.”

Andred himself did not enter the ring at all in 2022, and 2023 will start this Saturday with a fight against a little-known compatriot Demond Nicholson as part of the Davis-Garcia show.
