British professional boxer John Ryder secured a brilliant victory over WBA number one contender Patrick Nielsen at the SSE Arena, Wembley in London last night.

Fighting as a part of the undercard to George Groves’ Super WBA super-middleweight title defence against Jamie Cox, Ryder was onto his elements right from the start.

He dominated Nielsen and unsurprisingly won the first two rounds without breaking a sweat.

Ryder floored his rival with a big shot, hoping that it would be enough to gain victory, yet, the Danish boxer managed to recoup himself and gave his best, despite the dominance of the opposition.

The Brit grabbed a golden chance near the end of the fifth round, when Nielsen - with a swollen right eye - did little to resist the punches and body blows after his gum shield was dislodged.

A dynamic right hand to the face and then two more in seconds thereafter sent the 26-year-old crashing to the floor, while the ref waved the fight to be concluded.

Ryder began celebrations with his team after the most impressive display of his pro career.

As you can tell, a brutal and emphatic ending to the fight.

The 29-year-old, with his 25th win in his career, will now push his credentials for a world title challenge in the days ahead.

Known as ‘The Gorilla’, Ryder is optimistic of a bout against WBA [Regular] super-middleweight champion Tyron Zeuge, who has held the belt since November 2016.

The German ace is yet to be defeated in his total tally of 22 fights, with 21 wins and one draw, but Ryder is of the opinion he is on the cusp of moving onto the next level after the epic win, outlasting Nielsen on Saturday.

Elsewhere, all eyes will now be on Groves vs Chris Eubank Jnr. The fight all boxing fans want to see.
