Following his bout with Jaime Munguia in Phoenix, Arizona, here at SportsLens we have decided to take a deep dive into John Ryder’s career thus far. Read on to find out more about his boxing record, how many knockouts he has, and his record in world title fights.

John Ryder Record

John Ryder has fought in two of the biggest fights of his life in recent times. ‘The Gorilla’ travelled to the backyard of Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez in Guadalajara, Mexico, and took on the great champion in his hometown. Having just fallen short, Ryder put in a credible display and left Mexico with huge amounts of respect.

Last time out, Ryder again travelled, this time to the US to take on the up-and-coming potential star Jaime Munguia. The Englishman was stopped in Round 9 of the contest, but put up a brave fight once again, as you would expect with the tough Ryder.

These was a fights the 35-year-old was the underdog in with the best offshore sportsbooks, with the sportsbooks getting it right on both occasions. It remains to be seen whether Ryder fights on now, or if indeed he hangs his gloves up and enjoys the fruits of his labour from boxing.

Up to now, ‘The Gorilla’ boasts a strong boxing record of 32-7. The British boxer has been a professional since 2010, having boxed for over a decade now. He has risen his way up the rankings, all the way up to world title contention of late.

Ryder has won 32 of his 39 fights, suffering just seven defeats throughout his entire career. Of these 32 wins, Ryder had won 18 of them via knockout. Now, it remains to be seen whether that record will improve if Ryder fights on, or if indeed he calls time on his boxing career.

Throughout his 39 fight career, John Ryder has captured some huge wins along the way. Of course, he has suffered a few losses too, but he has most certainly bounced back from those defeats.

Ryder won his first 15 fights as a professional boxer in the middleweight division before running into a fellow undefeated fighter in the shape of Billy Joe Saunders. Saunders handed Ryder the first loss of his career back in September 2013 for the British and Commonwealth Middleweight Titles.

Ryder then bounced back with five straight wins before suffering the second loss of his career to Nick Blackwell. This is the only knockout defeat on Ryder’s resumé, having been halted in seven rounds. Ryder’s next defeat came to Jack Arnfield in what ended up being his final fight at 160-pounds before moving up to super-middleweight.

‘The Gorilla’ lost his second fight at 168-pounds to Rocky Fielding for the British Super-Middleweight Title, before then going on an impressive four-fight knockout streak prior to getting his maiden world title shot.

Ryder then challenged Callum Smith for the WBA-Super & WBC Diamond Super-Middleweight Titles in November 2019. The fight resulted in Smith getting a hometown decision and winning on all three judges’ scorecards.

However, a lot of people had Ryder winning the fight and believed he deserved to be crowned the new champion of the world on the night. It just wasn’t to be. But in typical John Ryder fashion, he once again bounced back in style.

After suffering the fifth loss of his career to Callum Smith, Ryder was undefeated up until the ‘Canelo’ fight. The London man had won his last four fights, including wins over the likes of Zach Parker and the former world champion, Daniel Jacobs.

Then of course came the credible defeat to Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez. The London man lost the fight on the cards, but left Mexico with thousands of new fans, having given ‘Canelo’ a really good fight for 36 minutes.

Last time out John Ryder once again went into the lions den as a huge underdog with new sportsbooks in USA for his bout against Jaime Munguia. Munguia was 42-0 before the fight, and continued his impressive record, knocking Ryder out in Round 9 of their bout.

That takes us up to now in the career of John Ryder. At 35-years-old, ‘The Gorilla’ is nearing the end of his career and may well hang the gloves up now. If the end of his career is now, then what a career it has been. Ryder can sail off into the sunset and enjoy his hard work over the past two decades.
