John Ryder eyes Daniel Jacobs fight

Former world championship challenger John Ryder is clearly not done with fighting the big names in the middleweight division.

The Brit lost his last bout against WBA super-middleweigh champion Callum Smith via close decision. Jacobs who is a former IBF world middleweight champion defeated Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. in his last outing, returning to winning days after he was defeated by Canelo Alvarez last summer.

“The fight that I really want is the rematch with Callum, but I know that Chudinov is now in the mandatory position,” said Ryder. “In order to get myself back there, then why not someone like Danny Jacobs in New York. He’s a great fighter, and I want to test myself against the best.

“It took me a couple of weeks to watch it back, and when I did, I still had it to myself by a few rounds, even being ultra favorable to Callum Smith in the close rounds. I still feel that at worst, it was a draw.

“I don’t want to harp on about it, and my problem isn’t with Callum or any of his brothers, they’re all lovely people, it’s the judges and the scorecards. It half makes a mockery of the sport. Sometimes you get a dodgy scorecard, but I feel that three was a bit wrong.
