After coming off a consensus Fighter of the Year honors in 2021, Álvarez had a lackluster 2022 with a loss to Dmitry Bivol last May during Cinco de Mayo weekend and an unimpressive decision win over Gennady Golovkin in September.
Álvarez is coming off surgery on his left hand. Ryder, 34, has won four straight fights dating back to 2020.
