Prediction,

John Ryder is underrated, and he is doing great at the moment, two impressive KO wins, beating Nielsen and Cox. Ryder made it close against Saunders, beat Khomitsky, he always seems to bounce back stronger after a loss, he does have losses to Fielding, Arnfield, Blackwell, he isn't world level, but he is at his best now, he has learned from his losses. Ryder has some power, he doesn't do anything particularly impressive, but he is solid, compact, has good work rate.

Sirotkin is unbeaten, 15-0, only 27% KOs, and he is 33, old for a fighter who is still learning, but his lack of power comes at the advantage that he has been 12 rounds twice, 10 rounds, 3 times, so he is an experienced long distance fighter. Sirotkin beat Ryan Ford in his last fight, beat him fairly wide, that's not a bad win, Ford was undefeated until he lost to former WBA champion, Fedor Chudinov, but Sirotkin didn't beat Ford as wide as Chudinov did, and he did fight an aging Ford. Sirotkin's best win has to be Ricardo Mayorga, a well past prime Mayorga, but still, Sirotkin was a street ahead, and Mayorga retired from the fight. Sirotkin's opposition has improved over his last few fights, but not so much that his terrible opposition for 10 fights isn't worth considering, but still, for some fighters, it isn't their fault, they beat who they can fight, and they step up when they can.

I'm not sold on Sirotkin, and I think with Ryder's experience, the form he is on, he will be too much for the Russian. I think this will be about levels, experience, and Sirotkin won't be able to hurt Ryder, won't be able to find a fight changing punch when things are going against him. You can never write off an unbeaten fighter, Sirotkin hasn't been fighting bums recently, he is active, he can do the rounds, and he may be a good fighter who just needs exactly a fight like this, but I doubt it, because of his lack of amateur pedigree, his overall quite weak opposition, and how occupied it seems he has been at the level he has been fighting at, Ford, Satybaldiev, definitely on paper, weren't easy fights for him.

I think Ryder wins this, I think it will be competitive for 6 rounds or so, but Ryder will attack body and head, in volume from the start, will break Sirotkin down, Sirotkin will be in the fight in the early rounds, will land punches of his own, but Ryder will be landing all the toll taking punches, and when it is technical, Ryder's experience, fundamentals will be the difference. I think Ryder stops Sirotkin, maybe in 8 rounds, when he has beaten the fight out of him, he will hurt Sirotkin, he will be relentless, unleash an onslaught, and he'll stop him.

This is a final eliminator, the WBA should keep their word, the winner of this fight should get a shot at Smith.

Good fight. I thought Ryder was getting out boxed, Sirotkin was awkward, did the basics well, had a good work rate, was good with the straight, sharp shooting, but Ruder kept a cool head, knew he could hurt Sirotkin, Sirotkin lacked power, so if he was going to win, Ryder would have had to have been unadaptable, technically limited, and although Ryder isn't technically that good, he was able to use his superior experience, not make the mistakes Sirotkin wanted him to make, and as he was able to find the range he wanted, he attacked head and body in decent variety, and when he had Sirotkin hurt, Sirotkin didn't know what to do, lacked survival knowledge, might have even looked at the canvas, and when he didn't see it coming, Ryder hit him with that body shot, and although the stoppage might have been slightly premature, you can't really complain, and Sirotkin was vulnerable at that stage, wasn't really able to defend himself.

Hopefully Smith vs Ryder happens next.
