Another added: "None of them even realized his last name was Ryder? Canelo won yes, but they sure didn’t give Ryder his due credit."

While a third suggested that the error was "pathetic".

It is not known whether this was a mistake or done deliberately to correspond with the local pronunciation of the Brit's name.

Fans were also concerned that the judges repeatedly referred to Canelo by his first name, Saul.

Saturday's fight saw the Mexican return to fight on home soil for the first time in 12 years.


The bout was dominated by the 32-year-old.

Canelo dropped Ryder in round five following a strong start, but the Brit fought back to go the distance despite sustaining a broken nose in the early stages.

In his post-fight press conference, Ryder admitted that the injury was a huge hindrance.
