John Ryder will box on the bumper undercard of Olympic Gold medallist Luke Campbell’s debut show at MS3 Craven Park in Hull on July 13, live on Sky Sports in Betfair’s ‘The Homecoming’.
The unbeaten middleweight will get some vital rounds under his belt ahead of a British title showdown with fellow London hotshot Billy Joe Saunders later in the year.
Ryder – 14-0 with eight wins inside the distance – further bolsters a formidable undercard line-up featuring the welterweight rematch between unbeaten Sheffield star Kell Brook and American Carson Jones, a fiery battle between Hull’s Tommy Coyle and Liverpool’s Derry Mathews for the vacant Commonwealth lightweight title and English super middleweight champion Rocky Fielding defending his belt against Martin Concepcion.
“It’s great to be on the Hull bill and get some good rounds in before the summer,” said Ryder. “I’m ready to step up to title action and the fight with Saunders later in the year is massive. Fighting on a big outdoor show with a huge crowd live on Sky is the perfect end to a great season for me and great preparation for Billy Joe.”
