Daniel Jacobs vs John Ryder: Date, UK start time, live stream, TV channel and undercard for London fight night

BOXING makes its long-awaited return to London this weekend as John Ryder faces super-middleweight rival Daniel Jacobs.

Ryder hasn’t been in action since a knock-over job out in Austria toward the end of last year while Jacobs last fought in 2020.

The Miracle Man won a closely-contested split decision over Gabe Rosado in Phoenix, Arizona, but is on the lookout for big fights again.

A clash with Ryder in London could do just that, as the winner is set to be thrust into a title-contending position with the WBA.

Canelo Alvarez, who beat Jacobs in 2019, currently holds the WBA title at 168lbs, while Ryder has previously boxed for the same strap against Callum Smith.
