The bout was held in Guadalajara


Unusual for the Ukrainian audience was the ceremonial part before the boxing bout between the absolute world super middleweight champion Saul Canelo Alvarez and the Briton John Ryder. The fight took place in Guadalajara, Mexico.



A few minutes before the start of the meeting, the flags of Mexico and Jalisco, a state whose capital is Guadalajara, were brought to the stage. The yellow and blue cloth, when folded, almost completely mimicked the flag of Ukraine.



In some of the photos from the presentation ceremony of the boxers, there was the illusion that Canelo was going to perform for our country.



During the state anthem, a large screen showed the flag of Jalisco, and it was only then that the fundamental difference from the Ukrainian flag became apparent: the yellow and blue stripes were placed vertically, and there was a coat of arms in the center.


Let's note that Alvarez - Ryder fight has come to the end with a victory of the master of the ring. All judges decided 120-107, 118-109, 118-109 for the Mexican.
