Canelo and John Ryder Weigh-In Results
Canelo Alvarez and John Ryder both made weight ahead of their Saturday showdown in Houston.
Alvarez, the reigning WBA, and WBC middleweight champion, weighed 159.4 pounds Friday afternoon at Minute Maid Park. Ryder, the WBA’s interim titleholder at 160 pounds, was slightly lighter at 159.2.
The weigh-in results were somewhat surprising, as most experts had predicted that Alvarez would come in significantly heavier than Ryder. Instead, it was Ryder who was the heavier fighter on Friday.
The difference in weight is not likely to be a factor in Saturday’s fight, as both men will be fighting at middleweight (160 pounds). The extra weight may actually benefit Ryder, as he will have a size advantage over Alvarez.
This is the first time that Alvarez has fought at middleweight since 2015 when he defeated Miguel Cotto to win the WBC title. He has fought mostly at junior middleweight (154 pounds) and light heavyweight (175 pounds) since then.
What Did the Weigh-Ins Tell Us About the Fight Ahead?
The weigh-in results for Canelo Alvarez vs. John Ryder tell us a lot about the fight ahead. For one, it is clear that both fighters are in excellent shape and condition. This should come as no surprise, as both have been training hard for this highly anticipated bout.
What is perhaps most interesting, however, is the weight difference between the two fighters. Canelo Alvarez came in at a whopping 170 pounds, while John Ryder weighed in at a much leaner 160 pounds. This 20-pound weight difference could be significant come fight night.
In general, the heavier fighter has an advantage in terms of power and size. However, the lighter fighter is often faster and more agile. This could make for an interesting contrast in styles when these two fighters meet in the ring.

The Final Result: Who Won and Why?
The final result of the weigh-in was that Canelo won by a very close margin.

This allowed him to come in at a heavier weight than John Ryder, which ultimately gave him the advantage.
