John Ryder faces experienced journeyman Mike Guy on the undercard of Golovkin-Szeremeta. Ryder has been on a good run for the last few years and we think he is better than people actually give him credit for. Mike Guy has been in with a lot of good fighters and lost to all the good ones but he has only been stopped once before and that was against Sergiy derevyanchenko. Even in that fight it took Derevyanchenko 8 rounds to do it so we now that Mike Guy is durable. It is his physical strength, toughness and his chin that has made him last the distance in those hard fights, not his conditioning as he looks sloppy even from early on. (sign in to view our prediction & pick)
John ryder is a much better fighter of the two and this is not a question of who will win but rather how John ryder will win this fight? Mike Guy is now nearing 40 years old and he isn´t getting any better. We believe that Ryder will be too much for him. The Pick is John Ryder to win by ko/tko.
