Munguia Vs. Ryder Pre-Fight Presser - Key Quotes

Jaime Munguia and John Ryder held their final pre-fight presser ahead of their fight on Saturday live from the Footprint Center in Phoenix, Arizona.

The super middleweight clash takes place with much on the line. Munguia knows a win over Ryder brings him closer to securing a potential Canelo Alvarez bout. This will be his third fight at 168, showing he has enough time to settle in the weight class.

But Ryder will be no pushover since he went the distance with Canelo in Mexico in his last fight. Ryder has the chance to upset the odds, but he may need a knockout to beat the home fighter. Here are the key quotes from the presser.

“Good afternoon to all. First of all, and again, thank you to Oscar De La Hoya, Fernando Beltran and Eddie Hearn. I want to thank everybody for being here, and thanks to Freddie Roach and Wildcard Boxing Gym. This was a great camp for all of us. It’s going to help me keep moving forward to achieve my goals. I know that John Ryder is a tough fighter. He has lost and he has won close fights, but I’m ready. I’m ready to do this on Saturday. Y que viva Mexico,” Munguia 

“Firstly, thank you to Eddie and Matchroom, and Oscar, Golden Boy and Zanfer for making this happen. It’s been a fight long in the pipeline and I’m glad we’re fighting. It’s a fight I feel like I needed since the Canelo defeat, and I want to continue operating at the level I’ve been operating at. This is the fight to kick me on, and push me in my career,” Ryder

“I said it three weeks ago, and I’ll say it again. The future is today for a bunch of Golden Boy fighters. This Saturday, the whole world stands in front of Jaime Munguia. If he can win: championship fights, PPV stardom and a place on the pound for pound list are all in reach. And right behind him, the same situation is there for Vergil Ortiz, Ryan Garcia, William Zepeda and many more in the Golden Boy stable,” Oscar De La Hoya
