Super middleweight contenders Zach Parker and John Ryder will collide in a 12-round main event for the WBO Interim world title this Saturday, Nov. 26, at The O2 in London. This high-stakes showdown pits two of the UK’s top fighters, with the winner in pole position to earn a super fight in 2023.
Parker-Ryder and undercard contests will stream live and exclusively in the U.S. on ESPN+ starting at 2 p.m. ET/11 a.m. PT.
Parker (22-0, 16 KOs) is a former British super middleweight champion who has been waiting patiently for a signature fight. He was supposed to fight Demetrius Andrade, but the American standout pulled out of a proposed May date with an injury and then declined the fight following a purse bid in September.
Ryder (31-5, 17 KOs), from London, has won three bouts since a highly controversial decision loss to Callum Smith for the WBA super middleweight world title. He is coming off an upset split decision win over former middleweight world champion Danny Jacobs in February.
