His name began to gain traction with a first-round knockout win over former Commenwealth super middleweight champion Luke Blackledge in September 2017. He won the British super middleweight title with a split decision win over Daryll Williams on November 3, 2018 and the WBO International super middleweight title in a second-round knockout win over Vaughn Alexander on March 26. 2021. Parker has finished his last five figths by knockout.
Ryder, 34, is in this position after an upset split decision win over former top middleweight contender Daniel Jacobs in February. The former WBA interim super middleweight champion has been around the top 15 of the division for years, but is considered more of a gatekeeper than a serious contender. His other notable fights are losses to former super middleweight champions Callum Smith and Rocky Fielding.
