John Ryder: 'I should be champion' following contentious Callum Smith defeat (video)

The scorecards were too wide, I think virtually everyone agrees with that assertion. After 12 hard-fought, quality rounds, Callum Smith retained his Super WBA super-middleweight title with a unanimous decision over John Ryder. That in itself was contentious but the cards - 117-111 and 116-112 twice - seemed hard to justify.

 

Ryder was inevitably downbeat at the post-fight press conference. The mandatory challenger had been written off in most quarters then, having produced the performance of his life, was denied the title John feels he deserves.
